A Noteworthy Birthday...

to view the image up-close, please click on the photo

Things here at TSB will be quiet for a couple weeks, as the family heads off on a summer adventure. We'll be tagging along with daddy on a working holiday and then to visit my folks in "fabulous" Las Vegas. (Translate: two 5-hour flights with a very active toddler means a "working" vacation for all of us!)
Moxie Fab has a very fun and cute challenge going on to celebrate their newest special publication, CARD Style: to make a fun and cute card! I have been very intrigued by the idea of a single-layer card, something I think should be easy, but can be challenging when you have a mountain of embellishments beckoning. For this birthday card, I kept it clean and easy with just some stamping, coloring, and a bright, satin bow (okay, I couldn't resist that one touch...is that cheating?) I drew in my own musical note and then I was finished with my easy-peesy Bibirthday card...this could become addictive!
Alas, I will be away from my crafting space for many days, but I will be hopping the blogosphere in hopes of more creative inspiration for when I return! Have a wonderful summer, all you crafty crafters!
