Family - a little word created by love!


Happy Friday!
I'm late with my post. Today is my daighter's birthday. She's 5! I cannot believe it. We spent the morning putting her new Lego Friends toy together and making her cake (Angel food cake with strawberries and whip cream! YUM-O)

Here's the card I made for Just Magnolia and Fussy and Fancy. Just Magnolia's theme is to have a windo of some sort on your card and Fussy and Fancy is to include a heart. I have no idea what is wrong with me lately but I cannot find any inspiring papers for the life of me. The last few cards I've made I have taken longer to figure out what papers then it takes me to actually make the card. I guess I need to do some shopping and some serious cleaning out papers.

I hope you will join us and have a wonderful weekend!

Just Magnolia - Window

Truly Scrumptious - Something Forgotten (paper)
