Birthday Card

Qbee's Quest: Post a card to my blog FINALLY
It's funny how at different times in your life you view time differently. Take my son for instance, he keeps asking me when will the school year EVER be finished (picture a child saying this with a dramatic sigh). I look at the calendar and think ... seven more weeks of school, YIKES!! Where did the time go? Seven weeks to me is more like seven days and therefore it should be of no surprise to you that I'm behind in posting to my blog. Insert apology to my Stampin' Up blog group here!!

Today, I'm posting a card that I made for a dear friend who had her birthday at the end of March. It was also sketch challenge #220 on SCS and I didn't get a chance to post it to my gallery there. I used one of my special KIDNEY brads. Yes, you read correctly, I wrote KIDNEY brads. I horde the Hooray Designer Hardware and therefore I have dubbed them KIDNEY brads, because they are so preciousssss, you almost have to donate a kidney to me, to have one make it on to your card. I hope you like it!

Spring Thank You

Qbee's Quest: Stamp A Card ... just for fun
I finally had some time yesterday afternoon to use my new sizzlits and embosslits with the Big Shot. It's been a long time since I just let my imagination flow to make a card that came out of my head. It's hard to tell, but the bashful blue card front is textured with the swirly leaves from the Backgrounds I Texturz Plates, and the flowers and leaves are sponged to give them more depth. The corner triangles are a 3" square cut on the diagonal.
