Happy Birthday to my Husband Dave!

Hi all,

I would like to wish my husband a Happy Birthday. He turns 59 and is aging well. I guess it's true your only as old as you feel. I don't know to many men his age that will still climb a tree with the granddaughter.LOL that was a great day and a great memory that I need to scrap.
The new craft room is going well. Have it basically all set up and most things sorted out. About 3-4 nights a week after supper I get in there and get cards made. This card took 2 nights to get it done since I was also working with it for a swap. 1 night to cut them all out and the 2nd night to piece them together.

So here is the finished card for his birthday and for the August Cricut Card Exchange group on Facebook:


Happy Birthday Card 4” X 6”
Cartridge used: Elegant Edges
For the scallop circle and the rectangles
Paper: Green rectangles and shadow from Close to my heart Miracle collection
Oval halves: the frame was cut from white card stock and the center and card base was cut from ATD specialty collection: Birthday wishes.
Stickles: Holly
Stamp: SU Teent Tiny Wishes die cut with spellbinders banner set.
Ribbon: American Crafts
Cuttlebugged with swiss dots.

This was a fun project hope you enjoy it.
