Birthdays are the Best!

Happy Wednesday! Remember my new plan to only make cards for specific reasons/recipients in mind? Well, Tuesday at work I came across 3 card needs already! I guess the key will be listening and paying attention..."Hmmm, that person needs a card for that!" 

First up, a birthday that surprised all of us, so I played along with the Paper Players #106 Tic Tac Toe challenge! Isn't this a fun challenge?! I went with the horizontal top line for the win...circles, birthday, and blue, my favorite color. And I'm proud (or maybe embarrassed) to say, except for the circle with sentiment and tape strip, the other parts for this card were all laying on my desk, previously abandoned from other card attempts. ha! Love being productive like that! :)

Okay, off to tackle another one of those card needs and then get a little school work done. Do you know how scary it is trying to come up with trainings for teachers?! Eeeek!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Oh my....first let me say the card is awesome! Clean, bold, crisp--I love it! Second, I was just thinking about all the cards I have sitting around, unsent and unused---I should only make a card that I NEED to send out!! Good luck with your challenge to yourself!! So glad you were able to play with the Paper Players this week!
