Birthday Wishes.....

Hey everyone...sorry I haven't posted in a few days. It's been kinda crazy at the Henderson House lately. My son, Tre' started his first job last week...I'll share a pic of him towards the end of the post. My niece turned 30 this past weekend so we went to her super FUN birthday party. Which brings me to post for today...I wanted to share with you a card I made for her.

I used DCWV's Chateau Lavender paper stack for this card...I LOVE this stack!!
I stamped the sentiment on a Kraft tag I tea stained & then blended a couple different TH Distress Inks to make it look like it came with the Chateau Lavender collection. The crinkle ribbon from May Arts goes so well with this it.

Here I used some Prima floral lace trim around the tag. I secured a fabric flower from Mon Ami Gabby (I have to tell you that I found this amazing company at the CK Convention earlier this year and I am a HUGE fan of their products) and then used a garment pin to secure it along with some twine to the lace trim.

I fell in love with this card and almost didn't want to give it : )

Now for a pic of my son Tre'....
Such a handsome young man don't ya think??? This was taken the day he was "officially" hired : )

Ok so here's another random photo...this was taken at my niece's birthday party....
This picture just cracks me up...she had a photo booth set up at her party & it was a HUGE hit. Yes..that's Mr.ScrappinAbby ; )
