Color Throwdown and Seize the Birthday

I'm back with my second post of the day. Wow. I have found myself in an "odd" position. I'm pretty much done with all the housework I'm going to do today. Notice I said that I am done -- not that it is all done. There is a difference. The kids are out playing with friends and Big Daddy is even outside. It's so quiet. I love it. I can do whatever I want! However, I don't know what I want to do! Bwaaahaaahaa!   This is kind of unusual for me, but not completely. Finally get some free moments and lack any desire to do anything. :) So I may sit and stare at the walls; I don't know!

I am going to share another card - I can always do that. I have stacks of them sitting around. And in more than one room. I actually had B.D. wave a stack at me a few nights ago wanting to know what the deal was. (I may have left them in the den. Whatever. The kids do that stuff all the time! Why can't I?!)

I have good birthday inspiration from Seize the Birthday and Color Throwdown this week.

Seize the Birthday is about using "tags" on your birthday project. I actually pieced this card together with leftovers that were laying on my desk. I had cut the tag for something else and then discarded it.

The tag die and ENJOY die are both PTI as well as the stamps from Wet Paint III. I used PTI Aqua Mist cardstock and Goldrush cardstock and Green glitter cardstock from CTMH. The patterned paper is from Pink Paislee's Hey Kid 6x6 pad. It was very simple and easy to make! I probably spent the most time drawing the white stitching on the edge of the vellum and striped paper. :)
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
