Birthday Card

Today seems to be Birthday Party Day. We've got two parties to attend this afternoon and evening ... with meals at both. Summer BBQ food is the best. I hate showing up empty handed, so I'm making a German-style potato salad with bacon and hardboiled eggs that I made once this summer already. My stomach is growling just thinking about it :) I'm also going to try my hand at Devilled Egss. I think I've only made them two or three times before, but as I recall, they're not rocket science.
I've gotten one card out of the way and one left to do. This one uses the Lotza Paper Boyz kit and although it's a little on the masculine side, I think it's general enough to suit just about age.
I recently purchased a Big Shot for when I get the crop area set up in my store front, and am finding myself using it all of the time. I wish I'd gotten one years ago. I've had a Silhouette for several years, but I love that you can cut shapes from Grungeboard, wood veneer, felt or fabric with the Big Shot.The "Happy" and kraft label are both Sizzix dies and I used a Martha Stewart border punch for that fun double loop border.
Off to finish my edibles! Have a great weekend and stay cool :)
