Girly Birthday Card

Hello!  Happy Thursday!  My daughter is still on winter break from school so we have been enjoying A LOT of family time this week!  Thankfully I am healthy after my stomach flu!  Today I am popping in with a Birthday card to share.  I am super low on my birthday card stash that it's crazy!  So for the next bit birthday cards are going to be a focus for me!  After I picked my card favorites from 2011 I felt like playing with my getting ready cling stamp by HA and wanted to do the kissing technique again.


I love the way the envelope pattern by HA adds so much to this silhouette stamp!  Blogging about this card makes me want to make another one using these stamps!  :> I find for me that the kissing technique works best with dye ink as opposed to pigment, how about you?

Yesterday I took the kids to the Children's Museum.  I invited friends and several were able to join us which made for even more fun for the kids!  The museum just recently renovated and everything was new!  So fun we will definitely be visiting again soon!  Here's a few of my favorite photos from the day:


In the Lasagna lookout climbing thing 


Can you tell it's noodles!  Carter loved the water table!  He was soaked!
Love him in this hardhat!!!

There you go!  I hope you have a great rest of your week!  The weekend is almost here!  :>
