Today's the day!
We are moving from Alaska to South Carolina and begin our driving today.
We are hoping to be home by Christmas. Please pray for us for safe travels.
I have projects already scheduled to post to my blog daily while we are traveling, so please don't forget about me! I will be able to check my email occasionally from my phone, and I look forward to reading the comments you guys leave on my blog.

Project #389 of this year
Here is another birthday card for you! Have you noticed I've been plugging in birthday cards now and then this month? :)

TALL CARD (9" x 8" and scored @ 4")
This Tall Card will fit perfectly into a #10 Business size envelope.
Background papers are from Ki "Fancy Free" stack I got at Michael's a few weeks ago on sale. I love the bright papers in this pack!
The blue flower on the balloon is from a Recollections pack.
The blue flowers at the bottom are Prima, and I added orange Recollections rhinestones to the centers. All of the flowers are adhered to the card using GLUE DOTS. I love Glue Dots! (One of my Pause Dream Enjoy sponsors!)
BIRTHDAY BASH for Bird & Balloon cut @ 3" p. 23.

Here's a hint for you. I told my Cricut Expression to cut this image at 3". Please note... it cut the bird at 3". That did not include the height of the balloon added to it. This is also true with other cuts in this cart like the bird in a party hat on page 21 show below.

Just remember that when you are cutting your images. Anything above the image like a balloon or hat is going to add to the overall height of your image cut. :)

I used pop dots to adhere the bird and balloon to give it some dimension. I use them a lot on most of my cards.
"You're How Old?" stamp from Mary's Cardz TV Stamps set "Make A Wish". This is one of my favorite sets that she has out right now. I love the fonts, the size, and the sentiments in this set!

Have a fun day! Hugs to you all. :) Janis
