Miss you

Oh yeah, today is my birthday!  Gonna have a good time.  :)  And it's my 50th birthday!  How fun is that?!  This is the decade in which I will retire from work and have WAY more time to CRAFT!

The ONLY downer today is that my youngest son is SO far away - somewhere in the middle of Oklahoma (in the US Army).  So proud of him, but I miss him.  Today's card is dedicated to him.

Recipe for this card includes the Cottage Cutz Stylized OwlTim Holtz Idea-ology Wallflower paperTim Holtz Distress Markers, Circle Dies, Unity Stamp Company sentiment, and a Bella Creationz doily.

This card is part of a Design Team post for Cut at Home.  Check out their blog for more fun cards and a video that I did.   Be sure to sign up for their VIP email list while you are there.  They send coupons (like 40% off Spellbinders dies!).  

It's Friday, so I'm also linking up to Unity's Friends with Flair!  Have a super lovely weekend.

Craftily yours,

Karen
