Happy Birthday Card

I am giving away a prize. To read about it click http://www.chrissandlou.blogspot.com/2014/06/prize-giveaway.html

Hello My Friends,

By the time you are reading this I will be on my way (with my next door neighbor and pretend daughter Jen to the Scrapbook Convention in Lancaster, PA, whoo hoo!  I am so excited!  I have never been to one before.

Today my project is a Birthday card that I made for a little girl in the neighborhood. You know I have my gal pals that range in age from 5-10.  I enjoy hanging around with them more than grown-ups.  They don't gossip and they love making crafts as much as I do.

I made a flower out of the scraps of paper, it kind of blends into the background but I think I like that.  Can you tell by how foo foo this card is that I was trying to keep myself busy until it was time to go and pack?  I am so excited!  Here is a close up of the digital stamp.

Sorry that it has shadows, it has been raining here in Maryland.
