Happy Birthday To You ~ Stars and Stripes

Hello everyone hope your week is going well. Mine has been real busy. The end of the school year is always extra busy. I offer extra reading and math support for our kiddos. State and district testing is coming up so the last few weeks of school will be exhausting for my team. Well enough of that. The point is I will try my best to get a daily project complete and posted. Thanks in advance for understanding if I miss a post or two.

I've been working on projects for fellow employees who will be leaving us in June. Their SPED program is being moved to another school. We will be loosing 10 valued employees and friends. I'll share pictures those projects after they are given out. Don't want them to see them online ahead of time if they're lurking out there somewhere.

Today I made a birthday card. You can't have too many of those on hand.

I've been trying to use some of my paper stash focusing right now on my many 4 x 6 pads.
And I am trying to use some of my other embossing folders. I found I always seem to grab the same ones. Especially since I orderd 36 sets of them when Cricut/PC had them on sale for $1.99. Now that was a sale I could not pass up. The 4 pc Retro Kitchen is one of those sets I just received.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in. then embossed with one of the Cuttlebug Retro Kitchen folders.
*Card front 5.25 x 4 in. cut from the DCWV The Glitter Mat Stack 4 x 6 pad.
*Happy Birthday To You sentiment stamp from Verve Stamps called Birthday To You.
*Sentiment frame embossed with one of the Cuttlebug Retro Kitchen folders.
*Stars cut at 0.75 & 1 in. from the Cricut George and Basic Shapes cartridge.
*Ribbon from Spool o' Ribbon.

May your day always be filled with love.
