I'm really celebrating this 4th of July by joining in on the OWH blog tour with my SECOND post in this new blog of mine....a totally new experience for me.Since we're celebrating America's birthday, the theme is, of course, a birthday card. I was thinking about that last week on June 25th....my half-birthday!
Friends have often told me I should celebrate that day instead of December 25th as it seems to get lost with everyone else celebrating Christmas. Yet, my family and close friends always seem to specially remember me that day, so
I've not been "cheated" as one might think. But today, for starters, I'll show you the birthday card it inspired me to make that will be going into my next package of OWH cards soon.
This image is from Inkadinkado's clear stamp set "Beautiful Fairies" that I recently added to my beginner's collection as I couldn't resist it, and I think the "make a wish sentiment" suits my June 25th half-birthday! (Does anyone else out there celebrate a half-birthday? I know my granddaughters always did, and at my age, I should just be forgetting them!)
Moving on.... I did make a card for the previous Midweek Throwdown - gettin Digi with it! that was sponsored by Tracie at The Stamping Boutique, and am just getting around to uploading it now, since it's the patriotic theme
for a hero looking forward to returning home soon.
