I'm heading out to Georgia this morning for a book tour. Yes, an honest-to-goodness book tour...just not mine. Gotcha! My precious friends are promoting their books No Safe Haven and Race Against Time. In preparation for the trip, I had to make a couple birthday cards. This first one sorta, kinda follows the OWH Color Challenge. Sorta. Hey...it has yellow and green in it! This also fits into the Heart 2 Heart: Embossing Technique Challenge.
The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby (of course!!),and the pearls are from Michaels (I made them curl on my own).
Oh...and in other news, for the first time since I started this blog I can report that I have lost weight. I'm not keeping track precisely because I'm trying to focus on just eating well and exercising regularly. BUT, I am going to need new pants soon!!
Well, gotta run. I have a few things left to pack before heading to the airport.
Until next time,
