 I have had a hard time getting motivated lately.  I don't know if it's the humidity we're having here or the fact that summer is winding down with the kids in our area heading back to school Aug 12th.  So crazy!  What happened to the day after Labor Day?  They have the kids end school now the last week of May which isn't even summer yet.  They can't go to pools, it's too cold.  Some amusement parks are just getting ready for the summer so they can't go there and most vacation trips are in July or August when you can enjoy the warm and sun.  Ok Rant on to the card lol.

I needed a Birthday card again.  Always a need in my house it seems.  Probably because I wait until the last minute.  Anyway I had wanted to try the Tower card that Sam from Mixed Up Crafts had done awhile ago but I kept passing it by.  Well with no where to go and humidity keeping me in I thought what the heck now is a good time.  Guess what?  SUPER EASY!  I must admit I did not follow Sams video.  Though I'm sure it's just so happened that when I googled Tower card this video came up first so I followed it instead.  (427) Tower Card Tutorial|A Fun Fold to Surprise Your Friends! - YouTube

Now I just have to see if I can get it in the mail today!  LOL

The papers I used were scraps of G45 and for the life of me I can't remember exactly which ones.  I think one was Portrait of a Lady (the pale pink) and the floral (which had the stripe on the reverse side) was an all floral collection from g45.  I just added tiny butterflies and flowers to each section and a bit of stickles.  The card when folded flat fits in a 5x7 envelope.

Big BooBoo on my end.  I started decorating with the Birthday wishes before I noticed the card was actually upside down.  If you look at the bottom pink strip you'll see the wording is upside down.  It was too late to change since I used wet glue and had 3 of the 4 Birthday wishes already down.  I guess if you use a definated pattern you better check twice before gluing!  LOL  Its ok though....I'm hoping she won't notice heeheeheehee.

Til next time.............................
