Pocketful of Birthday Wishes

Wednesday, November 26, 2014
Before I get started on today's post - don't forget to check out the deals at Stampin' Up! with their ON LINE EXTRAVAGANZA! You can click HERE for the details

Then Click HERE to start shopping with me and while you are there you can purchase the Starter Kit.  $125 worth of product for only $74.25 this is a 25% savings and what a fab deal!! It won't last long though - only through DEC 2!
Normally I would do a Throw Back Thursday post tomorrow but I wanted to share a Thanksgiving card in tomorrows post so I am one day early to share this Throw Back Thursday card.  You may have noticed that a lot of my TBT cards I have been using the retired stamp set POCKET FUN.  I am thankful that my friend Nancy lets me borrow this stamp set.  On Tuesday's I have a COME STAMP WITH ME class that is held open house style - "come when you can and leave when you must."  On this day I have the freedom to use retired stamps and product.  Many times I still use what is current but I love the freedom to use other favorites.  At the craft sale last Saturday I had this card on my rack to sell and one of the gals who comes occasionally to my Tuesday class said she would really like me to have this one out to make.  I love having them give me ideas like that, it takes the pressure off of trying to come up with ideas all the time.
I took the layout idea from Sarah B at Splitcoaststampers.com and used some retired Stampin' Up! Chevron Designer Paper, but I had to go to our local craft store to find a denim look paper for the pocket.  Let me tell you right now...the quality of the Stampin' Up! paper is far superior to the stuff in the stores, BUT sometimes you just need to get something to match perfectly.  All that being said - I no longer can get the Chevron Designer Paper so when we make this card at a Tuesday class it will take on a whole new look.
So if it is your birthday today - I wish you a pocketful of birthday fun!
Like this card, but need an birthday card for a child?  Well, try this one...
How fun! I love his little googly eyes staring at me!
Thanks for HOPPING by!
