Fall Birthday Wishes

Happy Saturday evening! Not very often that I post on the weekends but our plans were altered at the last minute this weekend. We were going to pour the concrete floor in the barn at Baby Creek. But the concrete was cancelled because they didn't have enough jobs to make it worthwhile to operate on Saturday. So rather than go out and stay at Baby Creek I decided to stay at home. I've been working on birthday cards today to catch up for November.

This afternoon I watched a video over at Jennifer McGuire's blog. I love Jennifer's blog. She just has so many wonderful ideas for making your cards really special. The video I watched was how to emboss the frame that you see in my card. I just love how easy it is to make a frame on the card. I used a Doodle Pantry pre-colored fall panda image and inked the edges of the Spellbinders circle die cut. The frame is embossed Labels Thirteen. Then I just punched some corner pieces and added the sentiment from Gina K Birthday Greetings. Just an easy to make card.
I'm entering these challenges:

For those who follow my blog, I wanted to let you know about my doctor's visit on Friday. My hearing has not returned yet but he said that the upper respiratory infection has caused fluid to build up in my Eustachian tube and the fluid is causing the hearing loss. So supposedly if we get rid of the fluid my hearing will return. So I am on new medication now and if nothing changes in the next three weeks, he may consider putting tubes in my ears. He said that's unusual for an adult but a possibility. So the saga continues. The meds today made me feel tired all day but hopefully it will make the fluid drain. 

Hope your weekend is awesome! I am thrilled to be crafting again!
