Birthday Week continues...

Between my family and Joe's family, we have a LOT of birthdays to celebrate in January and February.  This year seemed to have a LOT of milestone birthdays too.

Today is my mother-in-law's 70th birthday.  Happy Birthday Karen!

Here is the card we sent her...she loves birds, so I think I always seem to make her cards with birds on them.  :)  This one was super easy.  I was mostly just cutting paper that had the design on it already and adding the "to celebrate" letter stickers and the chipboard numbers.  It is hard to tell, but the numbers were sprayed with the Heidi Swapp color shine spray so it has a shimmer to it.  I loved the way it looked in person.


On to other news...

We got to see the costumes for Hope's dance recital this week.  They will be performing Swan Lake this year, which will be the purple tutu costume and their tap dance will be to Grand ole Flag in the patriotic costume.  VERY CUTE!


Hope has been very worried lately about how she is ever going to learn how to drive since she is so scared.  LOL...she is only 8!!!  So we tried to calm her nerves about getting a learners permit and practicing in a parking lot (or farm field like I did) and taking a class to learn all the rules of driving, etc.    We also joked with her and told her that if she was too scared to learn how to drive then we wouldn't have to buy her a car!  :)

Alright, here are a few more fun cards to share with you today...




Hope you have a great night and a wonderful Valentine's Day tomorrow.
