Birthday Panda

Hi friends!  I'm not SO last minute with this month's SFYTT, can you believe it?!  LOL  Life has been so busy lately that it seems I'm always juuuuust squeaking in before the deadline.

Anyway, I'm here to share the card I made for my mom's best friend's granddaughter's birthday last weekend.  I used some paper by Sassafras to give the allusion of hearing "Happy Birthday" as the cake is being brought out.  :)  The panda is an old sticker by Suzy's Zoo and the confetti pieces are K & Co.

I don't know that I *love* this card, but I really feel like I've lost my knack for creating single cards.  I've been spending the last 4 months or so stocking my shop with mass-produced Christmas cards, where my focus is using up sets of multiples in my embellishment stash.  Because my choice of supplies has been so limited, I feel like when I go to make a single card where I can use any image or embellishment that I want, I get overwhelmed!  LOL  Anyway, here's a copy of this week's sketch:

On a completely different note, Friday was my birthday, and I have to show you what I walked in on that night:

Chris had grabbed some of my stamps and markers and went to work on making my birthday card!  LOL  Here's the final result:

Pretty good for a first-timer, no?  :D  I hope you're all having a great weekend and enjoying the first days of fall!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
