Happy Birthday, Pauline!

Yes, I know today is not your birthday, but, if I wait to post it on your actual birthday, you won't see it for over a week.   I know you've received the card by now....I mailed it a week ago.   Sooooo................
A HAPPY BIG ___  BIRTHDAY TO YOU!   I'll never reveal your age!  But, I do know it is a big one!

Paper is by SU! and Cosmo Cricket.  Sentiment by Make an Impression and Viva Las Vegas Stamps.  The peonies are from Memory Box and that gorgeous wreath is a die cut....the brand new grapevine wreath by Memory Box.  Ribbon from my stash and image colored with Copics.

Pauline, I hope you have a wonderful, fun and relaxing birthday trip!

Thanks for peeking!

Good Luck!

My plan was to post this yesterday.  Then John and I got started on THE closet.  The one that had all sorts of things piled in it and we flipped coins to see who would dare go in there to find anything.   We pulled everything out and sorted it, took down old shelves, patched, sanded, painted and put in new shelves.  It's gorgeous!  And, we're really glad it's done.

So, that's why the card is a day late.  I sent it off earlier this week as motivation for Colleen who was attacking a similar home project....a garage sale that occurred Friday evening and yesterday.   Yes, we moan and groan our way through these tasks, but we always feel so good when they are done.

On to the card:

I used Stampin' Up!'s Right at Home set, and typed up the sentiment on my computer.  Paper is from an old DCWV Fun in the Sun Summer Matstack from 2009 and SU! Night of Navy.   Stripes, dots and bright colors are timeless!  Used nesties dies to frame the image and Martha Stewart's small tag punch. Ribbon and twine from my stash.  Colored with copics.

Thanks for peeking!
