It's a birthday..Mercy Style.

Happy Wednesday to you! I took a half day off from work today and MAN was it good to be home with nothing to do but stamp. I made three cards for my cousins birthday (I am the official card maker in the family so I have to make cards from every subsection of the family..uggh...lol), bringing my grand total to 5 so far. I'll show you the first one today and then the other two later in the week. Hubby and I have a military thing this weekend, so my posts after tomorrow will be scheduled all weekend. Yippee! Anyway, so this card is both a birthday card AND my entry into Mercy's sketch challenge.



 This is the first time i've participated and it was fun! I wanted this card to have a retro feel. I love the paper that I got at Hobby Lobby..so fun! It's a whole little retro pack! Cute! You'll be seeing more of it in the coming weeks/months for sure! Ok, well that's it from me today. I'm going to finish enjoying the rest of the day with a glass of something...maybe papaya juice. I'm such a wild girl, can't you tell? Haha!!!

Cardstock: New Leaf, Vanilla (papertrey), Peach Parfait (stampin up); patterned paper (hobby lobby)
Ink: Peach Parfait, Basic Brown, Green Galore (stampin up)
