Birthday wishes

I had the chance to get out of the house for some fresh air and came across this really cute and sweet DIY card making kit at the local department store!

It really was perfect timing as a close pal of ours had a birthday that was coming up pretty soon!

DIY card kits are the best, they come with every thing you need to design your own cards – paper, embellishments and in this particular case, instructions as well! Can life be more perfect than that?

Since our pal loved sweets (just like most people), I chose the “candy shop” design for the cover of the card.

The kit was a real blast to work with – just a little bit of cutting and pasting…

And my cheery little birthday card was done!

There were lots of embellishments left so I used what little creative juice I had left and designed the interior of the card as well!

Sure beats a store bought card! Handmade is definitely the perfect present for someone who has everything!

Happy Sunday everyone!
