Monday Montage #135

Back for another Monday Montage Blog Hop after a fun and productive weekend! I got in a 10-mile training run, made some pies, attended a choral concert for my son's choir, made a delicious pork roast in my dutch oven and even had time to stamp a card! Feeling very happy about everything I was able to get checked off my list!

I have been wanting to make a card with this Barn Door/Sliding Door Bundle for quite some time! I kind of put it off when I saw that all the cards made with this looked pretty similar ... well, DUH!! It's a sliding barn door for crying out loud!! Of COURSE cards created with it will be similar ... but they are OH SO CUTE!! I added the little Bitty Blooms punches to the left side of the card just so I could do something other than doubling up a sentiment!

And of course I needed a sentiment to peek out when the door is slid to the left ... and I have MANY birthday cards that need to be mailed out to family, so I am making MANY birthday cards all the time!! I used one of the sentiments from Beautiful Bouquet and then cut it out with the Rectangle Framelits dies (which are my new favorite obsession, I tell ya!)

Stamps: Barn Door, Beautiful Bouquet (sentiment)
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody
Ink: Lovely Lipstick, Crumb Cake, Mango Melody, Grapefruit Grove
Accessories: Sliding Door Framelits Dies, Stitched Rectangles Framelits Dies, Simply Scored, Linen Thread, Bitty Blooms Punch Pack, Metallic Pearls

After my daughter informed me that she and her hubby were already on the road on their way to the Redwoods in California on Saturday for Spring Break I have been kinda jealous! I haven't been to the Redwoods since I was a young girl (I grew up in Northern California). All I can think about are giant redwood trees! I told my husband that WE need to go ... let's see how long it takes me to convince him to get in the car with me so that we can actually do it!

What a fun card. I love the spray of flowers and the happy birthday message. Use of the gold pearl was very clever!
