Birthday Wishes

birthdaywishes

Good morning!  Things are moving along at the new house and I’m happy to report that phone, t.v. and internet will be hooked up on November 5, our tentative move in date :)  Yahoo!!  Today’s card uses this week’s Waltzingmouse Stamps sketch :)  I have missed a few weeks, but am so hoping that maybe this week I’ll be the lucky winner of a FREE stamp set…I have a few sets on my wish list  ;)  I kept the colours fairly neutral for a softer look.  I wanted to use green for the leaves, but that would have put the card off too much, so I opted for River Rock, a greenish neutral.  Brown might have worked too, but I wanted a softer look.  I was so happy to try out more of my doily stamps…LOVE how they fit in the large scalloped nestabilities :)  Have a wonderful day!! The week is half over!! Woohoo!

Love the neutral palette for this card with all the pretty flowers, bows and scallops. Great news for the move-in date. That's not far off!

How was the pumpkin patch? Let's talk soon!

Lovely, soft color pallet and the river rock works great! Loving that flower and how you layered it on top of the die cuts.

Hope you got a good night's rest after the pumpkin patch :)

Oh this is so beautiful, Maureen! I love the layering of the doilies, die cuts, and flowers! The soft cream color are so sophisticated and serene! Somebody is going to be a very lucky girl when she gets this on her birthday! I say "she" because it's girly perfection!
