Birthdays....



Yesterday I spent what seemed like hours working on a birthday card for my son -- it's his 21st next week. So it has to be very special, you know? He will expect something special. (He has a lot of confidence in me:) Well, my wastebasket is filled with failed attempts, including the one where I used my "Let Freedom Ring" stamp. (DH nixed that one.) I guess I just need the right inspiration to hit. Just hope it hits in the next couple days.
So in between my failed attempts at pure genius, I made these simple birthday cards. If I don't get some creative inspiration I can always slap a twenty onto my birthday hat card and be done with it.

I know what you mean but some days just not being able to do anything you set out to do. That's why I find just playing around is more fun. But you did a great job with these cards so your muse must have been hanging around somewhere!
