Happy Birthday....FUN!!!

HI Everyone!  OH...SNAP!!! I promised I would have a new project yesterday and then I didn't share it!  LIFE just got in the way! I worked at both of my part-time jobs. I thought I'd be home by noon, but didn't get home until 4pm...then kids were home...they were fighting...we were fighting because I was mad at them for fighting! I had to make dinner for youth group...EPIC FAIL!! My husband took me out for dinner while the kids were at youth group...I WAS SO THANKFUL! After the kids were picked up, we watched This is Us and I went to bed! EXHAUSTED!  

This morning there was no fighting...no chaos...it was WONDERFUL!  We went down the mountain to get our groceries for our church Thanksgiving dinner and our home Thanksgiving dinner.  We left at 8:30 this morning and were home by 1:00...went to three stores...Costco, Winco and Cash and Carry...and even went out for lunch...picked up PIZZA from Papa Murphy's so I don't even have to cook!  AWESOME!!!

Came home and had a nap with the hubby...and now I'm bloggin!

This is a project I made for OnStage.  I joined three organized swaps.  One Birthday Card swap and two Over the Top Tag swaps. I also made about 75 cards (not this one) to swap with anyone else who swaped...a general swap! 

Here is the card that I created for the organized BIRTHDAY swap!

My card base is Basic Black and the first mat is Bermuda Bay. Next I scored five lines on a piece of Whisper White cardstock...evenly spaced, but not all the way up. Remember the snowflake Christmas card I shared a while back...same technique (it was back on September 27 if you want to see it!).  I used the Happy Birthday Thinlits but separated the HAPPY from the BIRTHDAY...cool thing...I can use the cut away BIRTHDAY just by using a HAPPY stamp! I glued HAPPY down with Multipurpose glue and stamped BIRTHDAY underneath. I used the Balloon punch to punch balloons in Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay.  After punching the balloons, I embossed them with my Softly Falling embossing folder. I tied a piece of Silver Metallic Thread around the Bermuda Bay balloon to finish it off! The balloons are layered over each other, one above each line and attached with dimensionals! I LOVE the colors used in this card...they are FABULOUS combination!!!
For a little bit of fun on the inside of my card I simply scored one short line on the side and added an embossed balloon with dimensionals!

Here's what I used... 

My kids are off school this week and my adult kids are coming home, so I plan  to just enjoy them while they are here! I might sneek out and do a little creating, but I'll be sharing my favorite swap creations with you over the next week. Believe me...you don't want to miss them!

Hey...THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by today! Have a FANTASTIC weekend! I hope you get everything done that must be done so you can just enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday! Speaking of THANKSGIVING....have I told you lately how thankful I am for all of you! Thanks for following along and allowing me to share what I love to do!!!
