Birthday Card ~ Have a Sunny One

Wow yesterday was another crazy 11 hour day at work.
Too much happened to go into detail. Let's just say it was not restful. lol.
After work I hurried home took a quick shower then rushed off 
through Friday night traffic to attend my sister's 50th birthday party.
It was so fun to see friends that I haven't seen in years.
Six of my seven siblings were there which was wonderful.
Today we are attending a huge family picnic where 
I'll get to visit more with my sibs and see lots of aunts, uncles, cousins, 
their kids and their kids and in some cases their kids. Yikes.

I have a summer filled birthday card to share today.
I was gifted a ton of design paper, card stock, brads 
and other assorted crafting goodies this week.
One small box, one medium box and three huge boxes. 
My hubby said the larger boxes weighed 33 lbs. each.
It all came as happy mail. Thanks Sheri!
{I sure hope the delivery person had a hand cart}
I used some of the card stock scraps for today's card.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Bear and sun from the Gotta Wear Shades stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas
*Sentiment from the Happy Celebrations stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas.
*YR04, N4, E33, E57, BG15 and 100 markers from Copic.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.
