Birthday Bird Cage

I just got some card kits back from a swap I did. The card kit swaps are so much fun. They include stamped images, patterned paper, ribbon and embellishments. This swap was for Magnolia card kits. This particular one came from my stamping friend Linda Palmer. I fell in love with this image and the patterned paper she sent immediately. It just so happened that the image fit nicely with today's SCS sketch challenge 249. And the baby took a long nap, things really went my way this afternoon!

Hope to stamp a little more tonight, my husband has tickets to the Yankee's playoff game (a little jealous here)! He's taking clients for work, but still should be fun for him. So I'm going to stamp a little while I watch the game on TV. The Phillies are on right now. Very excited that my two favorite teams are playing October ball this year! Don't know yet, but I'm feeling like the Yankees might be due for a World Series win this year, we'll see!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you are all having a terrific week!
