Doodlebug Birthday...

I've been quite productive on the crafting end this week. Tropical storm Ida has been wreaking havoc on us and it puts me in the perfect mood to craft and be cozy! Luckily there hasn't been any flooding on our side of town, but the the RAIN, oh my lord, I could do without anymore!!!! Great for the newly planted trees, but not so good for running errands etc. Anyhoo, here are a few cards I worked on last night. The ink I used for the polka dots is not showing up well, in fact it looks blotchy:( I promise in real life, they are a lovely shade of pastels and are perfectly ROUND! I can't resist this doodlebug ice cream paper! I made the zig-zag card first and decided I'd make a few more to share this weekend. In the spirit of trying something "new", I gathered my ribbon and sewed it directly on the card. It was a nice change from simply tying a bow...which I was getting very bored and frustrated with...lol The ribbon is trimmed on each end and I folded it underneath the card front. Since I tucked and taped the ribbon underneath the inside, I also had to add a full paper liner so the ribbon is not visible on the backside. The sentiment is from PTI's-Star Prints.
Hmmm, something went terribly wrong with my photography here...just going to blame the "blotchy" dots on the camera AND NOT the photographer! Looks like the kids stamped their fingerprints in green:)

quit bein' so hard on yourself..i like the blotchy polka dots...they look fine, no need to be crisp...ice cream is not always clean, why should the polka dots be? lol

TT-have you KNOWN me to be any other way? I know, it's the perfectionist in me, wish she'd let up a bit! hehe

E.-I shouldn't complain then! I bet the boys LOVED it:) No missed school here, but one day we had a 2 hr. delay due to severe winds, couple limbs in the backyard, but nothing major.
