Stampin' Up! Happiest Birthday Wishes

Yesterday, I was blessed to spend time with three friends who love to stamp. We made a morning of eating, stamping, talking... and eating some more! Interestingly enough, we stayed away from the chocolate. Amazing...

Now, I must confess. Often when a group of us gather to craft, I don't usually end up with much to show in the way of finished projects. I'm a talker; I have yet to discover if it's a blessing or a curse... but let's just say I enjoy company when I have it so the cards get finished at a later time. But, thanks to the influence of the 3 ladies around me, I actually managed to get some things done yesterday! Here is a set of 4 cards based on a card created by Heather Summers.

The banners need a little something. Heather's had a little punched out star on each. Another idea would be to add the initials of the person celebrating their birthday or the number of years they are celebrating. (Kids love to celebrate what # they are; adults not so  I'll add something before I send out the card so that I can personalize it a bit... but technically, I finished :)

As a side note, if you need a yummy recipe for tonight try this tomato soup recipe by Our Best Bites. I'll be out and about all day today and wanted to have something easy and tasty to prepare when I get home. Paired with grilled cheese sandwiches, there will be happiness at the table tonight. :) If you like what you see, subscribe to their blog and you will see all sorts of yumminess on a regular basis. Be forewarned, they share amazing desserts.
