Making it Monday...

Today is Diego's 15th birthday.  Aaaack!  15!

I usually have a lot of trouble trying to design cards for the boys, but this one popped into my head this afternoon exactly as you see it above.  All I had to do was go through my photo files till I found this photo taken back when we lived on the the ranch, carve the 'you rock' into it via PhotoShop, use MSOfficePublisher to lay out the card front and 'happy birthday' inside for printing, print it out on watercolor paper, hunt for some raffia ($%*#) jute (double $%*#) burlap ribbon to unravel and use to accessorize, paper cutter, scissors, hot glue gun, foam mounting tape, and put it together.  Easy!

Sheesh!  Glad the hard design work was done for me.

I love being creative, and say thank you prayers often for the inspiration that just floats down and hovers around me.  :)  And the lifetime supply of craft supplies stashed in the craft room.
