Oh Happy Day!

It's always a happy day when I have card group. Well, it is once I get there. Usually it's not so great before that. I'm running around, stressed out, trying to get my cards done in time! Oh come on! You do the same thing! Admit it!

Actually, I had plans. BIG plans. I actually cut all the paper pieces in advance. I stamped and embossed my owl guy (all 24 of them) and took them with my wee scissors and cut them all out on my drive up to Canada. So, I did ATTEMPT to be organized this month.

It was that last little stamping on the white piece that messed me up! So here are the details of my Happy Day Card.

Don't you just dig these cardstock colors? I've always been a huge Bazzill fan (still am), but lately I've been enjoying some really fresh colors from Prism. I used (#B558-D) Frosted Teal and (#OR041-E) Intense Orange here.

I normally don't love 'cutsie' images, but Owen the Owl here has just enough attitude to make him hip. Like he's just thrilled to have a birthday! Thanks Kim, just love your owls!

My first background stamp is from the same company that manufacturers Kim Hughes designs, Cornish Heritage Farms. One of my favorite and often used Large Polka Dot Backgrounder. The word stamp is from Hero Arts, Design Block Birthday.

Lastly, the sentiment "Oh Happy Day" is from Fiskars "Just between Friends" stamp set.

{thanks ladies for your cards this month, as always, just wonderful!}

Hope you're all having a Happy Day too, Sue
