Chalkboard Birthday

My girlfriend at church is a teacher at our local community college and so I thought using the Our Daily Bread design chalk board birthday stamp would be perfect.

  Our Daily Bread Designs-- Chalkboard Birthday stamp
K&co. -- Papers
Fiskars -- Boarder punch
Melissa Frances -- Glass Glitter (boarder above punch) used scor pal to apply the glitter
Martha Stewart -- Flower and Butterfly punches
Black enamel accents (on butterfly)
Yellow Stickles in flower center

Our outside temperature gauge is reading 100 at 5pm. 
I am in the middle of pulling everything out of my craft room and rearranging, I have decided that I need to get rid of some stuff I haven't been using in order to make room for new.  I also needed to make room for my Mothers sewing table, my sister has been nice to keep it for me until I can come and get it and I can't wait to get it here and set my sewing machine up and to be able to finish a few sewing projects.  With these kind of temps, working inside in the air conditioning is the perfect time to get my things in order.

Hope you are all staying cool,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

Awesome chalkboard look. Love the birthday sentiment. The yellow and black loos great together.
It's been super hot over here too... makes it hard for me to craft.
