Happy Birthday to you!

 A while back, I started buying as many cute gift sacks at the dollar store that I could find.  Once I had them, I would make cards to coordinate with them. Once I was done making the card, I would slide it inside the flat bag and set them both aside until I needed them. I had the intention of not photographing the card until I was ready to give it and then post them here. has a way of making other plans. Between moving and having a baby and losing ALL of my digital photos from the last 5 years or so, things have been hard.  We were able to recover the last batch of photos from both cameras, but that was all. I have been sick inside. I won't bore you with any more details of that, but I was able to recover these photos so I thought I would share them with you. Would I rather have some precious photos of my kids rather than something for my blog.....ABSOLUTELY YES!!, but here it is anyway.

 I loved the colors of the gift bag and the cute little bird. I had just recently bought this bird stamp from PTI and it was perfect. I had a lot of fun recreating some of the fun glittery details from the gift sack as well as the fun colors. I really like making this fun challenge for myself. I just went to the dollar store and bought 4 more bags to make cards for.

I love the dimension that you can achieve using the diecuts that go with this cute bird set. I have only used it the once, but I can tell it will be a favorite. I also added some die cut felt ric-rac which I Love to make. 

My baby is doing really good and he is growing so fast! I will keep you posted with fun pictures.  This is him at 6 weeks which was last Wednesday! Thanks for fluttering by!! P.S. I have been working on a fun teacher ensemble this afternoon that I am planning on giving to Emma's teacher at Parent Teacher conferences on Wednesday. I will share it with you when I am done!

He is getting so big. He has the most beautiful eyes. I know you have your hands full. I always try to send off pictures to Snapfish for printing right away when they have a sale. That way, I have at least one hard copy. They store my pictures when I upload them too. I can imagine how heart breaking it is to lost so much! Sending a hug and I love the bag/card match! Adorable idea.
