MFTWSC87 Make a Wish

We have enjoyed a nice, quiet long weekend dogsitting our beautiful little friend once again. It was hot and the dear children enjoyed helping Bella cool off with a ice popsicle.

My dear daughter did give me a few days notice that she needed a birthday card for Tuesday, but I forgot about it until late this afternoon. Thank goodness the sketches from My Favorite Things  take some of the thinking out of the creative equation.

Here is the finished card:

I used papers from the Echo Park Everyday Eclectic paper pad, along with the Birthday Girl a la Mode stamp set from My Favorite Things. Several MFT dies round out the supply list: Open Bracket Border, Loopy Bloom and Mini Tab Quartet. The loopy bloom is made from crepe paper and finished with a My Mind's Eye brad.

The inside of the card is finished with a few flags from the paper scraps and the negative of the Open Bracket Border.

On a completely different note, a movie I have wanted to see all summer is Moonrise Kingdom - we almost missed it in the theatre, but  were thrilled to find it still playing last night. The entire family LOVED it and I can guarantee it is going to be added to our select collection of DVDs.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. So cute and colorful! (Laura's bday is Oct. 10 so you have lots of time for you and D to make a card! hee hee)


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
