Happy Birthday

I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year.  I had an early night by having Dinner and seeing a movie with my sister.  The weather here was beautiful.  It was in the 40's all weekend which is melting all the snow we got last week.   I decided to organize my DP (gulp) this weekend.  I kept tripping over it where I had it and I always reach for my 6 x 6 paper so I cut up alot of it into 6 x 6 sheets and put in with my other packs.  Now, of course, I need a new container of which Michaels is out of so a bunch is sitting in a pile when I get a new container.  I hope this works and I use alot of my older paper that I forgot I had.  This card is a perfect example.  This DP is some old SU that I had and love but never reach for because I have to dig for it my my 12 x 12.  I think it fits this card perfectly with the colors. 

Today is a new theme and a great sponsor for the Going Grey with Scrap-Creations challenge.  The theme is a wonderful Sketch seen below and the sponsor is StampFairy.  They have the cutest stamps.  I loved this bear.   To see more of their wonderful stamps you need to see what the other great creations from the other DT's.  You can find them on my sidebar.
