Happy Birthday Uncle Frank

Tonight I CASE'd a card that I saw recently on the blog by Artfully Ila. If you haven't checked her blog out, skip on over, she does gorgeous work, you won't be disappointed! I actually really like Ila's card a lot better, she did a much nicer job. Unfortunately, I was in a bit of a hurry putting this one together and wasn't in the mood to redo parts of it that I wasn't happy with. Anyway, I thought it was a really cute layout and I think my Uncle Frank will be happy with it. His birthday party is on Sunday, it'll be nice to see him and a great opportunity to see a bunch of my Mum's side of the family. We always have a few good laughs. Keep your fingers crossed for me that my girls don't run and act like crazy hyenas, though! They get excited and lose control sometimes...ok a lot, but I really hope they behave themselves there for my sanity!

For this card I used my Cuttlebug...did you notice that I bought another embossing folder? My poor swirls is getting some great use, but it was the only one that I owned. I'm slowly building a collection. The bee is from the SU Watercolour Garden set. It's the only thing I stamped on this card. All the rest was freehand doodling. The ribbon is from Michaels. The corner frame I cut out by hand, as well.

Well, I'm calling it a night, busy day planned for tomorrow and a few of the girls are coming over tomorrow night to stamp with me. Yippee! :) I'll post my creations on Sunday morning.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
