Simple Saturday …on Sunday

Happy Birthday_2_October 2009

Hi! How was your weekend? Mine was good. Yesterday’s wedding was beautiful. Time with family is priceless.

My Simple Saturday offering is a birthday card for my brother who is turning 50 on Tuesday. He was the fifth child in our family and the first boy. The oldest, I was barely six and in first grade when he was born. I remember my teacher picking me up and hugging me when I told her I had a new baby brother. She was so excited about the fact the baby was a boy, something I didn’t understand at the time. I thought girls were fine. LOL.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Stampin’ Up Kraft and Chocolate Chip cardstock; Retired CTMH Abundance paper packet; Cocoa, Sunflower, Goldrush, Autumn Terracotta, Vineyard Berry, and Bamboo ink pads; CTMH Happy Birthday and Waltzingmouse Peace & Plenty stamp sets; Ribbon from Wal-Mart; Circle punches; Sponge dauber.

Over the course of the next couple of weeks, my posts are going to be “hit and miss.” I have some “life” to catch up on before the snow flies. If you follow my blog and check it every day, you might want to consider subscribing it via Google Reader. That way, you’re notified of updates and don’t have to waste your time checking a dormant blog. If you have questions about Google Reader, the information here might be helpful.

I hope your weekend was great, and although I say it frequently, thank you for your visits and comments. They mean the world to me. I doubt my posts will be all that scarce, as I can no more stay out of my corner than I can the refrigerator. LOL. I just need to move stamping and blogging down a couple of lines on the priority list … until I’m caught up! Take care, friends. Later…

I really like this card, Kathi. It's a great masculine card, something that is hard to create sometimes.

Cute story about when your brother was born. You know I have 5 brothers, can you imagine how my mom felt when she finally had a girl (since I'm the youngest)? I'm sure the boys felt much like you did about boys being just fine. LOL

Have a good week and lots of good wishes being sent your way that you get nice and caught up!
