WPlus9: Day 2

Hiya! Hope my American friends had a great Thanksgiving weekend! We spent our in Amsterdam this year. We did lots of exploring, visited a few museums and for Thanksgiving dinner, we had our first Rijsstafel. Our mail pick-up schedule got mixed up last week and I just received my WPlus9 goodies today and WOW, another beautiful set by Dawn!! This month’s release is full of LOVE and since I always seem to be making something for the girls, I thought that today, I’d create a little something using the Valentine Wishes set + matching dies for my fab husband.

The Birthday Cake, Answer

First of all, I’ve been getting emails again on how to subscribe to my blog. If you look up, top right, you’ll see the search box and two icons above it.

Happy Birthday Hubby!

It’s his birthday today. The big 30! We’re going to a nice French restaurant to celebrate. We can’t wait. It’s one of our favorite restaurants. Oh so yummy but then I might just be partial since I love anything French {::SMILES}. This is the card that I made him. It’s simple and bright. The black cardstock is SU, the green cardstock is uknown, the pattern paper is Making Memories 5th Avenue, ribbon unknown and SU’s Spring Solitude stamp set. I do have some 5th Avenue papers, it was part of my Studio Calico March kit but I ordered this 5th
