Although I'm not big on birthday parties for myself, it sure is fun to throw one for others especially during summer. You can enjoy the nice weather and do some grilling. My husband's birthday is this weekend and I realized I only had "pretty" looking birthday cards in my stash like the one above. I struggle with making masculine looking cards, but I'm sure I'll be able to throw something together.
So who is smart enough to sprain their wrist on Memorial Day - the official start of summer? ME! I feel like this bird in a cage. Thankfully it's my left wrist (I am right-handed) and it's only a sprain. I never realized though how much your left hand supports what your right hand is doing. It's getting better, but not fast enough.
It hasn't stopped me from stamping! You can stamp with one hand. Hee hee! My little bird and cage is from the Stampin' Up! set Aviary. This set is so neat because you can mix & match the birds and cages. Very fun! Check it out on page 121 in the current Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog.
I CASED this card from page 10 of the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog. I plan to use this one as a graduation card for a male. I just love using the new stamp set The Open Sea. This set nicely compliments the new Designer Series Paper Nautical Expedition. What a bonus!
It's time to say goodbye to some of the Stampin' Up! sets & accessories from the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog. You have until June 30th to buy any Last Chance items. Click on the links below to view these lists.
