Sending a Big Bear Hug!

So, I have shared with you that I plan to make this the year of the Birthday Card, and I started in April with one third  of the year already over. (Whew, that saved me three months of guilt.) My first obstacle in this mission is actually making bday cards so I have been working on that. The 2nd obstacle - making it to the post office.
Papa's birthday was yesterday and the card is still sitting on my desk. We did tell him it would eventually make it to him though, and he was glad to hear he had something to look forward to.
Papa likes his hugs, so the sentiment is perfect for him. On the inside is stamped Happy Birthday. The bear is from Treasure Box Designs and is part of a series called Bobble Buddies. The whole series has been marked down to $1 each as they will be discontinued soon. Stop by the store to check them out! My background paper is from Doodlebug Design's Kraft in Color collection. The border punch is from Martha Stewart. And to finish it all off, I wrapped it with a piece of Trendy Twine and tied it in a bow. The twine color is Krazy for Kraft and is our spotlighted twine this month. That means it is on sale for $6.99 a spool. The sentiment is part of the Scrappy Mom's Stamps May Release and can be found on the Designer's Choice 2 stamp set. I was a guest designer for the May Release earlier in the month and I have to tell you that the two new sets this month are both full of super cute sentiments!!! The card measures an A2 size. Hope you enjoy it!

Karen, thank you for the invite. I have added the link to the blog to my sidebar and I will be watching for a chance to enter. I am wondering if every product I use on my card has to be in the store, or can it be just one or two items? Thank again for the invite. I truly appreciate it!

Melissa @ M Miranda Creations said...

Thank you, Karen, for always being so encouraging! It makes my heart smile!
