Happy Birthday 36

Mona Pendleton | Friday, July 6, 2012 @ 6:25 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I'm so happy the weekend is here! Lots going on here ~ Meredith has her horse riding lesson on Saturday and then we are driving up North to Prescott on Sunday to drop Connor off for a week long soccer camp! It's hard to believe Summer vacation is nearly over for them. The first day of the new school year is July 26th! Summer CHA is also right around the corner and Pink Paislee will be releasing some new AMAZING products!

I took a break from working on required DT projects and made this card for a dear friend of mine who will be celebrating her birthday this month. I used pretty patterned papers from the Pink Paislee London Market collection along with the Die-namics Chevron Stripes die to make my own Chevron patterned paper. I also made a felt rolled rose embellishment including leaves using a combination of a Die-namics MINI rolled Rose die and Die-namics Royal Leaves die.

For sketch inspiration, I played along with the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Club challenge:
I hope you enjoy the weekend! Any fun plans? I'll be back on Sunday with an all new CR84FN Color Challenge.
Be Sweet :)
