Fun Birthday Card


What are these things called? Windmills, spinners?  Whatever, I can't remember.  I had forgotten how to make them too until Betsy, one of the regulars at our stamp class here, came in last time showing us all how to turn a square of paper printed on both sides into a cute little windmill.  I adhered mine to a Popsicle stick with a Glue Dot Pop Dot for the front of this card.  (Stampin' Up! craft and rubber scissors will cut through thin wood like this.)

The rest of the card was inspired by one from Kristina Werner's blog.  She used flowers in front of her green hills and die cut clouds.  I stamped my clouds with one of the cloud stamps from Hampton Arts Whoo Loves You stamp set.  I should probably leave it on my worktable all the time, those clouds get so much use :-)  They now have the set at Two Peas Hampton Arts Who Loves You?

What are your weekend plans?  I'm caught up on work (except for cleaning, of course) so I was just getting ready to print out photos for a layout about a quilt I did a couple of months ago.  There is a sweet story behind it that will be posted here in a couple of days.  This weekend starts the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  More details here  Spring Blogger's Quilt Festival

I hope all the bloggers will get to participate.  Something is apparently going on with Google's Blogger. I couldn't get on this morning and one of my posts is missing.  They say it will get restored. I've missed my blog this morning!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Ingredients:  Stamps:  Whoo Loves You? by Hampton Arts
DSP:  Crate Paper, Stampin Up! and October Afternoon
