Red Berry Birthday


Happy Saturday! We have snow here although the sun is shining, so I sent the kids outside to play. This is another card I made a few weeks ago and never had a chance to photograph. All PTI except the Cuttlebug embossing folder. I don't usually like red and pink together, but the melon berry looks alright, don't you think?
Fed Ex just dropped off our ants for the Ant Farm the kids received for Christmas, so we're off to put them into their new home! Wish me luck that my boys won't try to take the farm apart and release Western Harvester Ants into our house!

Thanks for stopping by!

Good luck with the ants.....I just don't think that I would trust my kiddos with those in the house! Keep us posted on the progress!

Very pretty. I like this one, a lot. These colors are nice together and I love the way the ribbon is looped throught the tag.
It also looks like you did a little shading on the leaves? Nice touch...
YAY! You got the ants! Take pics of it all lighted up and post them for us to see!

How pretty is that! I love, love, love what you did with the sentiment! And yes, I would hope the ants won't escape either, you'll have to tell me where you got the ant farm, I'd like to get one for my DD . . . better than a termite farm in a log house though, eh?
