Happy Birthday Elissa/Cheer up Cindy @Midnight

Our Dear Dear Tea Party Hostess is on a little leave for the moment.... thanks to Marilynn we are here keeping the tea warm until da Madda returns..... I hope these all help cheer you up Cindy! We love you and miss you! Tuesday is not the same without you!

I had to work today. I had a little time this afternoon to start my card, as I got the first call of the year from the school nurse.... My daughter was a little under the weather. Then tonight I just was waiting for everyone to just fall asleep so I could get back to my CARD! I kept looking over at my husband just waiting for the snoring to start! LOL

As always, I try to make my cards functional.... It is my dear co-workers b-day tomorrow, Happy Birthday Elissa!

Lastly, this is for the Midnight Madness Challenge! I love their sketches! http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/ challenge mmsc20

  1. Very sweet card. I love how you have the nice two bright colors that contrast so well with your neutrals and compliment your main focus. This will surely delight the "Birthday Girl". Thanks for participating in the MMSC challenge this week. Be sure to keep checking Priscilla's blog for all the fun activities this month.

  2. I love the idea that you stamped those circles with the same colors/image as the main focal image. Very nicely done and very pretty. I hope I can start also making my cards more functional, something I need to work on. Lovely, TFS.
