Happiness Always: Laura's Sketch #4

Happy Friday! And Happy Birthday to me! I'm getting my specially requested dinner tonight...BBQ hamburgers and hotdogs from my dad and homemade macaroni and cheese from my mom. Yummmmy! And she made another apple pie! Doh!

Here's a freshly made card too! I worked on it off and on over the last few days. The design is based on Laura's Sketch #4 over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I took the picture outside on mom's little bench, and the quality turned out so nicely! I used my new Autumn Leaves buttons from Archiver's, love them!

We went back to the Outlet Mall this morning to make a few exchanges, and I've spent the rest of the afternoon setting up a blog for my mom's quilting business. How fun! Tonight and tomorrow I'm working on business cards for my dad's handy-man business. He's retired, but we want to keep him busy! lol!

Hope you're having a good Friday! Thanks for stopping by! Have you stamped something today?

Stamps: Happiness Always
Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White.
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Red Riding Hood, Kiwi Kiss.
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-Jig, Making Memories ribbon, Autumn Leaves button.

Happy Birthday! How nice that you can spend that time with your folks! I had replied to your comment on my blog, wondering about what movie you chose, but I'm starting to think that I've been replying for 2 months to without realizing it! I'll be people think I'm really rude for never replying, but really I did! Anyway, did you see Wall-E or Kung Fu Panda?

I had no idea it was your b-day I just knew I needed some much needed stamping inspiration. As usual, I turned to you, my faithfull stampin' guru, and surprise!.......your b-day! I hope it was a GREAT one and thanks for the creative pick-me-up. I will be stealing this button idea very soon!
