Happy July!

Hi everyone! Happy July! Welcome to my favorite month! My birthday is only 25 days away, so this is a month to celebrate! Today I'm headed off to my parents' house for a big shindig with the whole family. For the most part, I have no idea what I'm doing in the kitchen, but when it comes to cookies, I'm a master. I spent a good portion of yesterday baking cookies for the get-together. Chocolate Chip because that's one of my favorites and Molasses Sugar Cookies because that's everyone else's favorite. The chocolate chip turned out better than any batch I've ever made, so I'm a happy camper.

The card for today started out as Amy's Super Sketch Sunday #18 from last week. However, the thank you image just didn't look right as a rectangle, so I made that panel a circle. The whole card was inspired by the new Basic Grey Infuse paper. Isn't it cool? I stamped the Stampendous Window Thanks and colored in with Prismacolors and Gamsol and matted on Chocolate Chip. The tabs are the Stampin up Oval punches cut in half. I added a bit of rhinestone bling in the centers and a little polka dot ribbon and some Stickles to finish it off.

Okay, hope you have a great Sunday and get some time to relax and enjoy yourself.

LOVE that paper - those patterns look so cool together (which I guess is no surprise if they are from the same line, duh!) :-)
