FTL124 - Sending Birthday Wishes

Yes, I did return from Philly in one piece.........and I have been crafting..........just haven't gotten to the posting until now!  I think I have enough cards done for about 5 posts - yippee!!! I blog for fun, but sometimes I feel pressure (only put on by myself) to post everyday!  Why do I do that?  Well, anyways..

Today I'm posting a card following the Clean and Simple FTL 124 sketch.
I have hoarded so much PTI paper and I'm really trying to use it up. Why am I holding on to it? (lots of questions in this post huh?)   I bought a PTI polka dot pack last January and I think I've used two sheets out of it.....but I'm going to keep it on my desk, so I reach for it more.   This was a pretty quick card, using PTI's Button Bits set, paper, buttons and ribbon.   Not too much more to discuss about the card.

Here's the sketch if you wanted to play along:

And here's one picture from the weekend!
And yes...........we all ran the "Rocky" stairs and jumped around at the top of them!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Lovely! I'm actually recently beginning to like polka dot papers more than i used to - i think they're great for decorating cards! :)

Lovin' your picture and how could not run the stairs, you have to do that :) The card is beautiful, I think polka dots are just classic and the colors accent it. The buttons are great especially with the one with the bling. I do the same thing, feel the pressure to have something everyday, do it to myself, not sure why. Is that an OCD thing? Have a great day, hear more snow on it's way for you.

Love the photo Maria......would have loved to have seen yall run the stairs! Alot of fun I'm sure - but it looks a little chilly there too!
LOVE you card...that ribbon treatment is great. I keep trying that and it just gets all messed up. Guess I need more practice.
