Hello again! I hope everyone is working on their wedding card for this week's challenge at Just A Scrappin'!

In the mean time, I am still working on birthday cards for my family. I told you I have a big family! LOL

I started at the Anything Goes Challenge Blog where they asked us to create a polka dot birthday. I had purchased some 6x6 paper pads from ScrapAce a couple months back that included an Echo Park dots and stripes pack from their Soda Fountain line. The perfect polka dots!

I wasn't feeling completely inspired just by the paper so I checked out 365 Cards. They do a new challenge everyday! Day 116 was a lovely sketch. And over at Krafty Girls, they are  having a fun in the sun challenge. I love watching pinwheels spin in the sun so I had all the ideas for my card!

 Here is a close up of the pinwheels. I used Twinery twine in Buttercream, Caribbean and Maraschino in the middle of the buttons. The stamp is from CTMH. The inside says "I'm just extending the celebration!" So perfect for those belated birthday cards. I think I used this stamp about 5 times this month alone! I still believe better late than never :)

I normally don't blog on the weekends, but I have a lovely family layout that I have been wanting to share all ready for tomorrow! 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
