*Birthday Wishes*

Happy Monday everyone... we spent the weekend in Blairmore AB in the Crowsnest Pass enjoying the company of great friends and Rum Runner Days/Thunder in the Valley. We had a wonderful time camping in our friends' sisters back yard. We did a lot of laughing, a lot of eating, a *little* drinking.... but the most magical part of the weekend was Thunder in the Valley.... imagine watching great fireworks in a valley, surrounded by the Rocky Mountains... you not only heard them and saw them... you felt them!! Way wicked!

We've already "reserved our spot" for next year!

This is another of the cards I created during my crafting frenzy last week.... you will notice that there are a lot of similarities between it and the card I showed you last Thursday. In fact, the colours and the papers are exactly the same. For this card I used the sketch for MojoMonday 94. I also used a stamp from the For A Friend set by Stampin' Up!, coloured with my Copic Spica pens.... the thin blue strip was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Basic Black
*Patterned Paper: Doodlebug
*Images: Stampin' Up! For a Friend
*Ink: Memento Black; Stampin' Up! Bermuda Bay; Copic Spica
*Tools: Big Shot, Cuttlebug Border Frills Embossing Folder
*Embellishments: Doodlebug brad

I am very pleased with how this card turned out... and it was so easy when creating two cards using the same elements but different layouts.

We might be off to see the new Harry Potter movie later today... we'll see how our day unfolds!
