Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my birthday as well as President Obama.  I am going to a wonderful smorgasbord in Lancaster County with family.  The whole downstairs of this restaurant is the largest gift shop I have ever seen in my life!  So many unique items.  It's been a stressful couple of weeks, so I am looking forward to going out for the day.

Here are a couple of cards I made.  I need to start writing down the products I used so I can give credit where due.

This card uses DCWV paper, Prima flower, trinket pin made by me, Martha Stewart punch, ribbon from Joann's Fabrics,  and Recollection pearls.

DCWV paper, Martha Steward punch, trinket pin made by me, Papertrey stamp, and Recollection rhinestones used here.

I love this card!  My sweet SIL and I recently had a craft night and she let me use some of her supplies.  I used Melissa Frances paper, Prima flower, leaves and lace, as well as Papertrey Ink stamp, Bazzill cardstock.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.  I am so excited to see I have three followers!  I hope to get better at posting.  Have a great day!
