Birthday Card & Real Spring Weather!

Hello and happy Sunday evening to everyone in blog-land! We have been so blessed with our lately and it has been making me so very happy. The sun has been shining for several days now, we are experiencing above average temperatures, in the 60's and 70's and it looks like that trend will continue well into the coming week. Yeah!

Last night we met up with some new friends for dinner and conversation. We went to Bertucci's for dinner and I must say that while I love all of there meal choices I was especially pleased with my selection last night. I usually get the same old thing at every restaurant we frequent and Bertucci's is no exception. If I want a pizza I get the Silano and if I want pasta I either get the rigatoni and meatballs or the chicken, broccoli and ziti. Well last night I decided to step outside my comfort zone and be different ... and boy am I glad I did. Dinner was simply amazing! It was fettuccini with lobster and shrimp in a tomato cream sauce. Oh My Goodness ... it was heavenly! Can you tell that I would highly recommend it?! LOL

Well, our gentleman friend was having a birthday so of course I had to make him a card. I used a sketch from the new Paper Crafts Magazine titled Go To Sketches. I am really loving this magazine! This is one of Teri Anderson's sketches from page 24, if you are interested.

I used a combination of various papers and generic Bazzil cardstock. The beige cardstock background paper is something I had on hand and don't remember where it came from. I rounded the corners with a corner punch. The dark brown strip is Dark Chocolate from PaperTrey Ink and the green stripe is from Pixie Sticks by Imaginisce. I simply cut out just the green color I wanted. The green circles are Bazzil and the checked circles are from Park Buddies by S.E.I..

I also took advantage of the left over scraps and added a little touch to the inside of the card as well. The stamps are from Birthday Wishes by PaperTrey.

Well I'm off to start dinner. Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful week full of sunshine and happiness.
