A Never Could Forget Your Birthday Card

Isn’t that what they say about elephants? *smile*

Hello Everybody, I hope you had a GREAT weekend!  Time just flew by this weekend for us.  Shopped until we dropped on Saturday and cleaned out the garage yesterday – a job WAY over due!! Things fall back to the norm today moving into the last day of February and with Spring just around the corner!  YEAH!  A little reminder for ya’ll, not this weekend; but the next, we set our clocks UP an hour!  Don’t Forget!  Spring Forward!

ANOTHER REMINDER ~ As we enter March, please know that this will be your last month for items in the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  Check your lists make sure you have a plan to finish out that list within the next few weeks.  If there’s anything I can help you with I am only an email away!!!  This is the one big sale event of the year, you need to take advantage and not miss out on all those great items that Stampin’ Up has to offer.

Now what was that about that elephant?  Never forgets? *smile*  That’s the message for my card today.  This card is something a little different from me, hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it…


I put my Ice Cream Parlor DSP to work.  Combined it with a little Peach Parfait, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight card stock.  The smaller scalloped circle and the three little circles at the upper right hand side are from the self adhesive die-cut sheets that come with the DSP.  I added the three little stars from an on going stash of mine.  I ran the Peach Parfait thru the Big Shot with a CB EB folder, added a little roping from the balloons to the elephants trunk and tied a small knot.  To bring in a little more Pacific Point and balance,  I punched the photo corners and tucked them just behind the Peach Parfait piece.  I was done!

A peek inside ~


And it will say “I could never forget your Birthday”…*smile*
