I Love Days Like This: 07/08/09

I guess I must love numbers, as I love days that make a pattern or are sequential -- like today!
It's 07/08/09! It's going to be a good day!


I loved Jennifer Buck's sketch so much that I decided to make another today - and with my Unity Stamps again. Their Kit of the Month is such an awesome deal. For this 6 inch card I used the June KOTM - Perfect in Every Way. It's on sale today!

I pieced the pear tree with K & Co. Wild Saffron DP. LOVE that paper! This is for the Shabby Chicks Monthly Challenge: NATURE. See all the Shabby Chicks blogs in my right sidebar!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Birthday to my good friend, Juliana!

Wonderful card as always. Love the pear tree with the piecing, bet your fingers hurt after cutting all those little pears! Great paper choice and the brads going at an angle is a fun touch.
