Birthday 411

Birthday 411 published on 10 Comments on Birthday 411

This was supposed to get posted yesterday but it has been THAT week.  Yes, the phone line/DSL line went weird, the garage door opener quit opening and we came home from church yesterday to find that the dishwasher was leaking in the kitchen.  The phone line is still crazy, the garage door is fixed and my brilliant husband found the cracked fitting and stopped the leak.  But the insanity didn’t allow time for posting. 

I had some little boy birthday cards to make this weekend and needed them fast.  So I got the Stampin’ 411 sketch for this week and got to work.  Actually, I had looked at the sketch in the morning and then remembered that I hadn’t made the cards for the party and then panicked and started stamping.  Fortunately, the layout was one that stuck in my head (love that kind of layout!!) and I think I mostly kept it right.

I started with my Play Date DSP (it is currently on sale as part of the Online Spectacular!) and added in a little of my Brights Pattern Paper.  Minimal stamping and maximum use of the DSP…a sure way to keep it quick!  My favorite part of the Play Date paper is that you can pop up the special birthday number!  The cupcake comes from Party Hearty and the little sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  These are pretty basic cards so I think the rest is self-explanatory.  Here they are:

With any luck my DSP connection will stay working and I will be able to post a little more tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by today and I’ll see you again soon!
