'Tis the season of Birthdays

This is the time of year when it seems like every time I turn around, someone in my life has a birthday coming up.  I have made cards for my husband, daughter, and nephew.  Now it is time to make cards for friends.  Yes, you have seen this stamp from Inkadinkado a few times before.  I love cats and sparkles, so this is my go to stamp, particularly when the person I am sending it to is owned by a spoiled rotten cat.  Both of these are based on a layout from Freshly Made Sketches.  For this first take, I used Moonlight paper, a button from the pewter mini medley, purple sparkles and clear bitty sparkles, long retired ribbon and a sentiment from the "Say It In Style" stamp set, all from Close to my Heart.

 I have a second take on this layout in my next post.  Thank you for stopping by.  Until next time, Hansi
