Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone

How’s it going today. I went to church this morning and they honored the veterans. Some of the little kids made cards for the vets. I ended up with 3 cards. They were so cute. I served 4 years in the Air Force. Not going to say when, since it was a long time ago.  I am still planning on that BBQ  tomorrow. The high for today is 69, but the high for tomorrow is 75 – perfect for grilling.

Today’s card is a spring/summer card. Lots of butterflies. I just love butterflies and things that sparkle. Like my card today has butterflies that sparkle. I used Dazzling Details – the one in the bottle – on the butterflies and then I painted it with a paintbrush. I sprayed the card with Frosted White Shimmer Spray that also makes it sparkle.  You can see for yourself how the card just sparkles.
