Birthday thank yous

Happy Friday!!! I am so sorry. I have been a horrible blogger. I feel like I have all the time in the world but so much stuff has been going on. We have been busy with birthdays and holidays. Right now we are in the middle of all our Christmas plans. It seems like we have our stuff and church stuff going on all at once.

Yesterday I woke up with a migraine and did all I could to keep from thinking about it. My oldest had his speech therapy in the morning and since we were out I wanted to stay as long as possible so I took the boys to get some lunch and then to do just a little bit of shopping.

When we got home I wanted to work on our Christmas cards and I had some thank you cards I wanted to make for my birthday.

Since I got a few craft supplies for my birthday I decided to use them. I had to start with some purple because I LOVE purple. Since I am using white cardstock for all my Christmas cards I decided to use vintage cream cardstock for the base. I had some light purple cardstock from a stash I bought a long time ago so I used that for the matting. I was going to use the vintage cream again to stamp my flowers on but thought the idea of using vellum cardstock would look nicer and I was right, I think so anyway.

The flowers and sentiment are from PTI's floral frenzy. The colors are palette ripe avocado from PTI and palette lavender sachet the centers were stamped with palette (I think it is called) haystack.

The circle for the sentiment was made with the spellbinders circle and PTI "boxes, bags and tags" stamp set using the same purple and green color inks. The ribbon was tied into a bow and then taped to the vellum cardstock. It was actually very easy to make. Now I just have to make the rest and then get them out in the mail. Maybe I will have everything done early this year, we shall see.

I hope you have an excellent Friday and weekend. My mom, sis, niece and I will be going to Tall Mouse in southern California for the make and takes that Marianne will be teaching. I cannot wait. I will be sure to have pics for you all to see on Monday.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

I have liked purple since I was in schoo. It so happens to be my birthstone and school color so I guess that was why I liked it so much.

Beautiful card!!
