Twitterpated Card & Alex's Birthday

Today my nephew Alex turns 3! We are celebrating with a party this afternoon. No, we didn't get enough of him (or his brother) on vacation! I'll definitely be posting pictures later of the party and these handsome fellows. (At left he is enjoying strawberry soup on our cruise.)

It is wonderful to be home safe and sound from our trip. Now to get papers graded between church, the birthday party, and getting ready for work/school tomorrow!

This fall card was literally made with scraps, and I love how it turned out! The circles were leftover from my accordian card (see my post on 10/3, World Card Making Day). I had a piece of Chocolate cardstock that measured 4"x12", so I cut it down to 4"x11" to make an almost-standard-size card. I modeled it after the Wishes "Circle Collection" pattern. I did have to cut the striped paper to size, but that was easy. Even the ribbon was scrap.

All the paper comes from the Twitterpated paper pack. The adorable felt leaf came from the Heartfelt Whimsy felt collection. I can't wait to show you more with these cool felt pieces! The cute little bluebird on its branch is from the Whoo Loves You stamp set. Thanks for looking! Hope you find a little happiness today too.

I am so guilty of searching for just the right scrap to make it fit, often spending too much time to save a dime! Don't think I'll be changing my ways, though. Really cute card...and mighty cute fellas. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
