Fall and a Birthday!


Is anyone else enjoying the BEAUTIFUL weather?  We sure have with football games, baseball games, and a trip to Gary's Berries (a HUGE pumpkin patch with TONS of fun things to do) this weekend.  However, I've been gearing up for a very fun week here on the blog......a Lil' Inker Designs Release and a few *surprise* blog hops I'm helping with!  So stay tuned!  :)




I have a fun BIRTHDAY card to share using the Stitched Stars Dies from Lil' Inker Designs!  In just over a week, my *baby* will turn EIGHT so I needed a special card for her.  Where has the time gone??  *sniff, sniff*

I just love how a "little bit" of twine really dresses up a card!  I've used Tuxedo Black Timeless Twine......it's just bold and perfect!  I've added dimension with foam adhesive between the star layers and a sequin to the center star.

Love your layered stars and clean design! Before you know it, your kids will be grown and you'll be joining the empty nesters' club! I miss the days of picking pumpkins, carving them, etc. Guess I'll have to wait for grandchildren - lol!

You are so right...a bit of twine does dress the card up. So does the stitching on the stars. Beautiful job on your card.

I hope your big girl has a very happy birthday! My daughter turned eight this summer, too. Your card is so wonderfully girly and fun! The stitched stars are fabulous.

Based on the dramatic poses in your picture - those stars are the perfect birthday card!! I love the soft and feminine colors with the black!
