Cruising By

Hello Saturday, my Crafty Peeps. I wasn't going to post today, I was planning on saving this cute card for Monday, but then I said naaaaaw! I'll make something else for Monday.

 I have big plans for Monday. It's my firs official full day all to myself. All three of my kiddos will be back in school. It's a little bittersweet, though. My youngest is in first grade, Kindergarten is half day here, so  for the first time in 8 years (I think) I do not have to run a kid to preschool or rush back for a Kindergarten bus. It's another new phase of life and it always makes me a little weepy. I got emotional on Thursday when I walked him into his first grade class room. I have grown accustomed to having lunch with little people ;) I'll miss having him around in the afternoons. BUT......I am reeeeaaaallly looking forward to having those days to myself. 

On to the card.

 I created this one for N's best buddy. I thought these new Die-namics went perfectly with an older MFT stamp set, You Move Me. I added some fun elements that made this card come together quickly. Love how dies do that. The road and car are from World Traveler and Hit the Road Die-namics. 

A few Flat Bottom Clouds were added  to complete my scene. I stamped the sentiment in Orange Fizz ink. 

I even did up the inside, which I have been neglecting to do lately. A few stripes from Plaid Builder, and the number 7 was cut from the Big Numbers Die-namics and then I added some festive polka dots. Sentiments are from the Big Birthday Numbers stamp set. I love that the "Happy Birthday" fit perfectly in the balloon. I used a Copic multi-liner to draw in the string.

You can see all the products I used linked below. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend.




  1. Love your little scene with all that orange!

  2. Those are GREAT cards. Love them both.

  3. Love it, inside and out! They grow so quick don't they? I am sure you will LOVE having some time to yourself during the day. I used to go eat lunch with Collin at school every Wednesday until 4th grade. :)


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
