Big Day

Happy Thursday! How are you, chickies? Doing well here, looking forward to the weekend.

Today I have a sweet birthday card to share with you. A few weeks ago, Laurie Schmidlin shared a little about her daughter Alison and the struggles she is going through. Alison's 16th birthday is coming up and Laurie asked if we could send her a birthday card to help celebrate. I was happy to, and this little number is on its way to Ms. Alison now.

I combined Back in the Saddle and Heirloom Patterns for this card. Pink, brown, and cream is always such a yummy color combination, too.

Before I zip away, I wanted to give a little shout out. Heirloom Patterns is starting to show up in blog land and I wanted to share some of what I've seen! I think that maybe you guys like the houndstooth? ;)

Laurie rocked it with houndstooth shamrocks.

JJ wowed me with her CAS card - I think the large houndstooth pattern is the bomb, too! ;)

Cammie was inspired by menswear patterns for her card.

Ladies, you made me so happy inside - I love that you are enjoying this set. I can't wait to see it popping up elsewhere. Thank you for your support!

Have a great evening!
