Time for a Quick Birthday Card Then Off to Virginia!

Even with preparing for a 10-day trip I was so sure I would get a bunch of cards done and line up a few days' worth of posts. Well, it just didn't happen. So, here I am, nearly ready to take off to Virginia tomorrow, leaving behind five cards in want of adhesives and embellies. They are going to be gorgeous, too! Hee hee! But now I have to wait a few days... I hope you will come back to see them!

I did get a birthday card made, though. It was one I'd forgotten to do, what with all the Valentine cards. I don't have much of a stash general cards. (It's like the story of the shoemaker whose own children had holes in their shoes.) Thanks to my Cuttlebug (the birthday embossing folder and flower die set), Xyron (for quick adhesives) and a rub-on sentiment I was able to make this card fairly quickly. I like it! What do you think?

I might not be making cards for the next week or so, but I stamped a bunch of images to color. I'll be checking in as usual to see all the great art going on out there. I'm really bummed, though that I'll miss the WOJ challenge this week. I have a really cool card laid out. But, hey, when I get home my new WOJ spring set will be waiting for me!! Goody!

Wowee! Have a terrific time! 10 days is quite the trip. If we manage a long weekend we're doing well. LOL Your CB card is gorgeous! I love how you can make a really beautiful and professional looking card in no time with that li'l machine. Haven't seen that flower die. Love it! Will have to go shopping. xxD
