It’s a rainy, dreay day again here in Raleigh.  I spent the weekend working on Holiday Projects for my blog and for StampNation, and it was great fun, BUT!!  It’s still August, so I decided to pull out some fun, bright colors again. 

Summer came charging into my stamp room and all is well in the world.  The sketch at Mojo Monday helped me out and in no time, I pulled a bunch of fun elements together to make this cheerful birthday card. 


The video for this card will be up later this week at StampNation.  Not to worry, though, we still have lots of Holiday Projects coming as the Virtual Open House continues, including a Halloween Banner and yes!  The ornament from the front of the Holiday Mini Catalog!
