Don't Sweat It

Happy Thursday! One more day to the weekend. We will be home this weekend so I am hoping for some crafting (and cleaning) time. It's been a while since I had some time to clean the house so that's my plans this weekend. We had some snow last night but not much. About an inch and just enough to make the roads slick and hazardous this morning. Out snow fall has been much lighter than usual but I just have this feeling that the worst is yet to come.
February is a big birthday month for me so I've just about run out of birthday cards. So I am back to making them again. Here's the newest birthday card.

I used an image and sentiment from From the Heart digital stamps called Birthday Candle Birdbrain. I used my number paper for the background. Colored the image with Copics and inked a background. I added some ribbon and the sentiment also colored with Copics. The inside sentiment says,"You've got that special Birthday glow!" Another sentiment from the set. I used the sketch at From the Heart challenge.

The twist was to make a handmade embellishment. I have some flowers that I crocheted but I didn't like the look of it on the card. So I just stuck with the sketch. I am entering these challenges:
It's supposed to be another very cold night tonight but them a warm up for the weekend. Possibly 50 on Sunday. Won't that be a real change! Thanks for stopping today. Make it an awesome Friday and I'll see you again this weekend.
