It's a Jolly Day

Today is Brent's birthday...and unfortunately I don't have a birthday card for him. With our conference, I just didn't have time to create anything and I didn't get the stamps I wanted in time either. But, I do have another Christmas card. Kindof out of my comfort zone, since it has no stamping, lol.

I'm a little late, but I did use Get Sketchy #13 for this card. These Thicker letters are left over from Shannon's Baby Album and I didn't have any more e's. I really wanted to spell jingle, lol.

Paper: Basic Grey Jingle
American Craft Thickers, Snowflake Punches, PTI Buttons, CTMH Brads, and Crystal Stickles


I hope you all have a wonderful hump day! I will be taking Brent out to dinner to celebrate his big 2-8. We're going to eat at Mizu, a Japanese restaurant. This is the first time ever that Brent and Scott aren't actually spending their birthday together. In the past, Brent has either gone home or Scott has come to visit us. And just in case you have no idea what I'm talking about, my hubby is an identical twin.

But with their birthday being on a Wednesday and right before the big Turkey week, it just didn't work out. Birthdays aren't that special to Brent, so honestly, I think I'm more excited about going out than he is, lol.

  3. For being out of your comfort zone, you sure can't tell! The color combo is fantastic and I agree with the other comment, it looks like a quilt.

    Bummer you didn't have the letters you needed to spell jingle, but Jolly works for me!

    Happy Birthday to Brent. Hope you enjoy celebrating with him. *Ü*
