We Interrupt Our Christmas Programming….

Pin It

To bring you a birthday card. I went to my card stash and found that I am almost out of birthday cards. How did that happen? So I will be popping in some birthday cards as much as I can over the next few weeks because my have lots of friends and family members with December birthdays.

For this card I used Balloon Girl from Whimsy & Stars Studio. The colors in the photo are off a bit. In real life her dress closely matches the pink sheet music paper on the card. I tried messing around in Photoshop but I don’t know what I am doing. Why does this happen with some photos?

I’m going to keep this short. I had meeting in Chicago today (Monday) and I am tired. I’m going to go prop up my foot and chill out.

Thank you for stopping by!
