Birth



TGIF!!
Just popping in to show you one last card I made for the release of Rejoice and Everyday Prints at Practicing Creativity Designs. They were released at midnight...did you get yours already?

Today is my hubster's birthday (Yes, I married a Scorpio...WHAT was I thinking???*grin*) and he asked for a German chocolate cake, so after work I have to rush home and quickly make one! I'm using Trisha Yearwood's recipe. She apparently makes it for Garth each year on HIS birthday, so it must be good, right?

Here's the inside of my card:





I used the star burst images from Rejoice! along with two quotes. And ironically enough, although I hate the color red, I was pleased with they way this card turned out! The black twill looks so good in real life.

So thanks for sticking with me this week for my PCD sneak peeks, even though I've had absolutely NO time for blog hopping and commenting. I can't wait to play catchup this weekend and see all your fabulous creations!!!

Big HUGS,

AHHH more in common ...... my sister's b'day is tomorrow and guess what cake is the family staple for her and my brothers ....... you guessed it and now after seeing this recipe I think I am going to "mix it up"

Of course love the card and the colors ....... if only I had more space right now for more stamps...... sigh. I think I will have to stop buying for a few months to figure out my new space. I am SURE Curt will be very happy to hear that bit of news :) Have a great day!!! Did I send you my new email address ??
