Happy Birthday

Hello ladies!

I don't think there are any guys who read my blog except the hubs, right?

Well it's Monday, nothing we can do but make the best of it, right? A little crafty share from me to you is my way of brightening Monday up a bit. :)

This is a combination Doodlebug Design/Silhouette card. Isn't this die cut cool?

As usual I've added some hand stitching. I think a lot of people shy away from hand stitching because it's time consuming, but it doesn't have to be if you add just a little here and there.

Oh how I wish this cupcake were real!!! And zero calories too! I don't want much do I? ;)

All products are Doodlebug Designs except the white card stock and die cuts. The die I used for the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

If you are interested in learning more about my hand stitching techniques, I will have a tutorial posted here and at the Doodlebug Design blog tomorrow.

Tomorrow is also the first day of Spring and I couldn't be happier! It's my favortie season! How about you, what's your favorite season? I'm really enjoying the warm weather we've been having! It's supposed to be in the mid 70s all week. You can't get any better than that! I hope spring has arrived where you are and that you enjoy it!

Kathy :)

Hi Kathy!! Love your card today. Your die cut is beautiful. Never thought to use them like that but I think I need to start. Lovely hand stitching too. Can't wait for your hand stitching tutorial. What kind of thread do you use? Maybe you will talk about that in your tutorial. Thanks for a look see at your lovely card!!

Hi Kathy, Your cards and your blog is delightful! I host a swap blog- and we are swapping handmade cards and tags each month. I was wondering if I could use photos of some of your beautiful cards as inspiration for the swappers? I will of course link back to your blog. You can answer here or visit my blog, take a peek and leave a message there. Thanks in advance for considering! Linda
