A Little Birdie Told Me...It's Your Birthday!

Happy Monday morning! If today is your birthday, you can consider this card for you! ;-) It may look familiar from here, which was my first attempt at a birthday swap card I had signed up for. I had cut all the parts, except for the polka dot strip, but wasn't crazy about it, so I tweaked it some this weekend and came up with this.

I ended up making the polka dot strip larger and cut the pumpkin pie and white pieces down smaller. I got rid of the zig-zag banner and just made one row...probably should have scrapped it totally, but it's how the card started, and I refused to give it up. Do you ever do that? You know you should abandon something that's not working, but you refuse to do it, causing yourself hours of torture and frustration?! lol!

Hope your week kicks off to a great start! We have the Math TAKs test tomorrow and the Reading TAKs retake on Wednesday...and then it will all be behind us...ahhhhhh!...at least until next year. We have some really fun things planned for our hard-working students, including a field trip, which they've never experienced before, so it should be fun ahead! Thanks for stopping by!

This is adorable--again, I just love those hats turned into penants! I used to teach and while I miss it at times, I definitely do NOT miss standardized testing and all the hoopla that went with it! Hope it goes by quickly for ya!
