Happy Birthday

Hi, everyone! Sorry I have been MIA this past week. We have been so busy trying to find and buy a house that I really haven't had time to do anything else. The house we had previously put a bid on went sour, so we had to start over. So we went up to Clarksville this past weekend and found a house that we love. We put an offer in and it was accepted. We close on Dec. 5. We are so excited!! We move from here the middle of December. So now that you know the great news, I will get on with the card!

I really went out of my comfort zone with this card. I usually stick to rectangle cards. For the circle base I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. The scalloped circle frame was from Mini Monograms. The patterned paper is Sassafras Lass. I used Stampin Up!'s A Flower for all Seasons stamp set. I colored it in with Prisma Pencils and OMS. The "Happy Birthday" is from Lizzie Anne Designs. Hope you all enjoy. Thanks for looking. Have a great day!

Congrats on the house. I know how traumatic house hunting is, lol, and I bought the first house I looked at, twice! I haven't regretted either one (I only moved from my first house because I had too many kids for 1,000 sq. ft) so I guess I chose right.

The card is awesome. I know what you mean about moving out of your comfort zone. I have trouble using big circles on anything.

Sorry to hear about your other house, but I am glad you found another one and your bid was accepted. Good luck with your move.

Great card! I think circle cards are so pretty. I love that little frog, he is so adorable.
