Special Birthday Wishes

Good Morning!  How is everyone?  Did you have a good weekend?  I did.  I went to the Hierloom stamping convention held this weekend.  We were lucky because the convention is held in West Springfield, MA where the tornado's hit last week.  We saw some of the destruction it caused and it was sad.  The convention though was a lot of fun.  I bought alot of my favorite things which included ribbon, die cuts and stamps.  Don't you just love new toys??

Today's theme at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations is Happy Birthday.  I thought since I have been making alot of Birthday cards lately I would use one of my new Rubber Stamp Tapestry sayings to say have a special day instead of the standard Happy Birthday.  We also have a great sponsor this week.  Heart Song Designs!!!!   Doesn't this watering can with the wild flowers say Summer has begun to you??  I thought it went well with this Bearly Mine paper and my new hot pink polka dot ribbon.

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Crafts & Me - Punch it out
Penny's - Summer
