Birthday Fun!

Hi everyone!  I thought I would just take a minute to check in with you all.  I appreciate all the kind words and support you have given me.  Yes, our AC is still out and will not be getting fixed until late this week or next week.  It's not too bad.  Our lower level has stayed at 80 degrees and the our master bedroom, kitchen, and dining room have been at 85-90 degrees.  It's funny because I normally would have been majorly complaining about the heat but because I have so much on my mind I haven't really even noticed it.  We are closing on our new home on August 19th and they will be painting and replacing the floor the week after so we will not officially be moving in until the following weekend or early the next week.  That gives me more time to get things done!  There is a lot involved with buying a house and getting a house ready to sell.

I also have some birthdays coming up this week so I wanted to get some cards ready.  I made this one for a friend who is having hers this week.  I hope you enjoy it!  I love how the colors are super bright & fun, just like her personality!!

  2. Great Card! Love the bright cheery colors! Glad to hear you are doing well...praying they can get the air fixed even sooner! Take care!

  3. Great card! Sorry to hear about your AC. We were without ours for a month before we gave up fixing the old one and just put a new system in. So I know how you feel.
    Take care,

  4. Great card! But how on earth do you find time to make cards with all the stuff you have going on! :-)

  5. Sorry to hear about the ac. That is a hot kitchen. I used to work in a resteraunt that got to 110 in the summer. I know what hot feels like. YUCK!

    Adorable card. I bet she loved it.

  6. Oh girl, I'm so glad to see a post. It lets me know you are still alive. I have been so worried about you guys in this heat,but it sounds like you surviving. It's another beautiful card, like always! I hope some of your talents rub off on me!!!!I love how the colors play off each other! I can't wait to see you and Karlee Saturday!! Take care!

  7. Great card!!! I loooove it! Glad to hear you have dates set & progress being made with the big move! How exciting for you!

    Hey Robyn. Great BD card. I have been trying to find instructions on how to use SUs "layered stamps". You know the ones with a sold square or circle, and then another stamp that actually goes on top of that? When you are actually able to do videos again will you do one using one of those stamps,so we can see how it's actually done and how the stamps are actually used? Thanks!

  9. This is so funky Robyn. Yellow and blue are my favourite colours so I'm loving this colour scheme.
