Birthday Wishes

Hope you all had a fabulous day!  We have had a good couple of days here. This is our last week of summer vacation.  Hard to believe school starts next Tuesday.  The summer definitely went by fast.  It was really fun not having to work and spending the summer with the girls.  We did lots of things. Each week we did 
something different...bowling, swimming, movies, twice we even took a week and headed up to Pennsylvania to see family.  Yesterday I took the kids to the movie Diary of a Wimpy Kid.  We all enjoyed it.  It was a fun day out and bonus...movie theater pop corn.  Pretty sad that it was only 2 of 14 movies at the theater we could see.  Two movies.  Why?  Because 12 out of the 14 movies were rate R.  We don't go to the movies a lot so I guess I just didn't realize how many are out there that are not age appropriate for young kids. 


Okay now on to me time.  I decided that after a fun filled week of movies, playing pop out connect four, watching disney channel and all that fun stuff it was me time to sit down at my craft table and make some cards.  I realize the other day that I am out of birthday cards that I keep on hand.  I try to keep a few around for last minute and when I went to get one, yep you guessed it they were gone.  So today's card is a birthday card.  My card today is using this weeks sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  I found their sketch blog a few weeks ago and really like the sketches I have seen so I try to play along every so often.  I have played along a few times and well, realized that their new sketch came out today so I might as well play along.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
