First Birthday Card
Well, it was a super busy weekend. 5th birthday party and swimming lesson on Friday, another 5th birthday party and gymnastics lesson on Saturday, then a first birthday party on Sunday ... way too much junk food and cake in just three days! Jessica had a fantastic time at each party, but we were all tired by bed time last night.
Anyway, here is the card I made for the one year old. I used the Create a Critter cartridge. I used my Design Studio to join two kennels together to make a card, then cut out extra parts and did some layering. I have seen a lot of layering lately on the blogs and I thought I'd give it a go. It really does make a difference to the look of the card - I was quite chuffed with the result.
I am now late with two cards and have best get my act together on another two to get them to the people on time -- I keep saying each year that I am going to keep ahead of the birthdays -- but it has not happened yet. I have never been know for my organisational skills, but you never know.... one day.
Have a good week,
