happy bird-day

Hey everyone!! How is your Tuesday?...mine is great so far...I have a list 10 feet long of to-do's but they aren't goin' anywhere so I thought I would start the day with some stampin' fun! I made this card using the Monday Mojo sketch from Julee's blog. I thought this was a great layout and a fabulous way to use some more of my Hey Sugar Cosmo Cricket paper! This paper has great colors in it!!...don't ya think? I decided to sand the edges of all the paper and the brads too (see close up pic for brad detail)...since the paper had a distressed look to it already I thought this was a good way to go! I used my markers to color the cute little bird from the Pun Fun set. I added a scalloped edge, a flower with a button (which I got from Target dollar spot and colored with my marker) and I was done...this was a super simple card...I love fast!! :)
Have a fantastic rest of your day!!! {hugz} Tara

One other thing to share with you today! I saw these on Jen's blog...check them out here. They were such a cute idea so I made one for my daughter...she needed something to keep her school ID safe ...(safe from her losing it!) It is her identity at school! :) So what's better than a school ID?...a cute handcrafted by your mom school ID!!...Am I right? I used Crate Paper...the Cowgirl Collection and added some punched out flowers with brads. I added just enough ribbon and I was done...took a whole 15 minutes to make!!
** {{DISCLAIMER ...Kailee about died when she saw me taking pictures of this to post on my blog! She is horrified at the picture on the ID...it's from 3rd grade!! Why do they use a 3rd grade picture for a girl in 6th grade...who knows?...the word is next year she will get a real picture! These things are a big deal when you are 12!!}}

Poor Kailee... I would upset too!

BUT DANG CUTE ID holder... why do kids need IDs anyway?

What an adorable card. Love the button on the flower. The ID holder is so cute, too - even if the photo is several grades behind!
