Where Does The Time Go?

I know my husband will be asking that question as he celebrates another birthday this week. Today I have his card to share with you. But now I am asking myself where the time goes as I am thinking about the fact that it's time for me to share my last card with you before our ABC Toys & Crafts DT Summer break! Seriously.... where does the time go???

I know this kind of looks like a kid's card, lol, but I just couldn't wait for a child's birthday to use this adorable stamp ;-) It's from the Inkadinkado set Kid Quotes "Friendly Advice" which has some of the cutest sentiments- all quotes kids have actually said. This one was from Shane O'Donnell, age 4. The kids' names are also on the stamps, but I chose to leave it off this time as it fit better on the Spellbinder's classic and scalloped oval dies that I used.  Some of the other adorable quotes are : "You make me smile all over my face" -Ian Hobson, age 5 and "All you need in life is a friend who has chocolate" -Sophie Diehl, age 11 and how about this one: "Getting married means sharing your toys" -child at wedding. How cute is that?!

Anyway, I think my husband will get a kick out of the card. I made sure to use his favorite color, blue. The paper is from the Authentique 6x6 bundle collection "Genuine". The background pattern looks like denim; it's really cool. I embossed it using the Cuttlebug Perfectly Paisley embossing folder and sponged some navy blue ink over it. The balloons are punched out using more paper from the same paper stack. I just added some twine to them and found an old button from my stash.

I hope you have been enjoying the cards I have made for the ABC DT blog. It been so much fun designing for them I know I will miss it over the Summer. But, as we all know, come Fall we'll once again be asking "Where did the time go?"!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are having a wonderful day! :-)
