Celebrate good times...

Hello again! 

By the power of Vicks VapoRub my voice has returned just in time for work. I'll still be packing plenty of cough drops just in case but all in all I feel ready to face the world again, LOL!

My card today is for the Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at The Greeting Farm. This week they want to see baker's twine and buttons on our cards. Anya Lifts is another one of those stamps that I've had stamped up and waiting... waiting... waiting. I don't know why it took me this long to get around to her but I'd like to think it was because Anya was holding out for some different papers to go with her. Enter the Midway paper pad from October Afternoon... I loved the explosion of color and energy and thought that it would work well for a birthday card. In the end I only used a single sheet from the paper pad and it got all cut up just to create the over sized sentiment but I think it's enough to set the mood I was hoping for. 

Well, that is all I have to share today. Happy hump day and I hope the sun is shining wherever you may be. :)
