Having a birthday?

If so, this is probably the type of card you would receive from me...bwaaa ha ha ha ha!!!

I love this sentiment from Hambo Stamps and this layout from My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club was just perfect for focusing on a sentiment. I didn't have the same die cuts as the layout; but that's okay, a sketch is just a great jumping off point and besides that piece, everything else I followed just as it was.

Hmph to those TLT ladies that think I'm a rebel!?!

I love these papers - once again from MME; just perfect for any celebration - bright, cheerful and seriously, who does not love polka dots and cupcakes!!

I used a straight stitch on the main panel, then a zig zag stitch on the green polka dot panel. The cupcake panel was edged with VersaMagic Sahara Sand to help it pop off the card a bit.

Great layout - take a momemt to play along and as always, don't forget to check out the amazing sentiments and images at Hambo Stamps!
