Let's Celebrate!

Hi there!

How are things with you?  I hope things are going well in your world! 

I thought I'd ink up one of my favorite stamps for a summer birthday card.  Just love this
butterfly stamp with hearts!  It was easy to choose the colors of yellow, orange, and green.
I had some gingham paper to match.  Gems on the butterflies and little wire antenae.  Polka
dot ribbon to finish off the card. 

Have you seen any good movies lately?  We saw Men in Black III last weekend.  It was a good one!  I especially enjoyed the bowling scene!  I won't give anything else away.  But, anyways, it was a great movie!

I wanted to also share a pic of a little cardinal I saw today under the bird feeder, but didn't get a good pic.  We have a family that we often see.  This morning I saw a bright red cardinal on the table on the deck this morning.  I moved to get the camera and he flew off.  We've seen the mother about at various times in the yard.  If and when I do get a good pic, I will post it on here.:-)  Take care and thanks so much for stopping by today!

  1. Oooo, how pretty! Love those butterflies, and all that gingham and stitching just feels so summery! I hope I get to see MIB III before it goes to DVD. I really liked the first two. I recently saw Snow White and the Huntsman, which was very good, although dark. It's so different from what you would expect in a Snow White movie. The dwarves are fantastic, and I loved the unusual ending.

  2. This is the perfect summery birthday card! So so pretty!
