Happy Friday!! The weekend is upon us!!!! Today my company arrives and am I ready. No!! Still trying to clean up and bake before their arrival. I think I have neglected my house just a bit lately and just stamped instead. LOL! It is just so much more fun!!!

September is just loaded with Birthdays. I have been incredibly busy making cards. This week has been the week for just a few a CAS cards. Don't normally do to much of them since I just love details.

The card I am sharing with you today is using the Happy Birthday set and the Doodles 2-Thinking of You set from Our Daily Bread. The dp is the Basic Grey Wisteria paper. I incorporated Roxi's sketch SC247 from Splitcoast and Lynn's TLC239 to create your own layered buttons. Instead of sewing, I used paper piercing. I think I like the clean look. What do you think?

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Doodles 2 Thinking of You, Happy Birthday
Paper: BG Wisteria, Black and white
Accessories: Rhinestone flourish, circle punch for button, satin ribbon, metallic purple cording, rhinestone flourish, paper piercer

Thanks for stopping by today. Today I plan to finish up preparing for my company and then visit other blogs for inspiration (meaning visit You!!!) rather than create. Have a great weekend!!
