Happy birthday card

Once again I have pulled out my scraps to make yet another Birthday card.Recently I have been buying Martha Stewart punches from Michaels. I use my 40% off coupon to purchase one every month.I LOVE them, so easy to use & yet so elegant a look they give to my cards.The stamp is Stampin Up from some years back, I colored the birds, branches & leaves with my Copic Markers not sure which colors I used as this stamped & colored image was in my scraps.I also used my color box chalk chestnut roan to ink around the edges of card.

My new Gratitude Journal

Right now at our church we're doing a a time to Regenerate. One of the things they are asking of us is to start something new, so I have decided to start a Gratitude Journal.It is an Old Quaker tradition, daily you are to write down one thing you are grateful for. I picked blues & greens, flowers & butterflies.These are some of my favorite things in life. 
All of my papers came from DCWV "The Green Tea stack". I used my quickutz die cuts of 2 different butterflies and also mini dragonfly & butterfly die cuts.The green & white polka dot ribbon is from my stash, I never can remember where I get my ribbon from because I can never seem to pass any up.The black epoxy stickers that spell out Gratitude Journal are from creative imaginations.Along the top & bottom of the banner I used my new MS border punch, I think it gives it an elegant touch.
Hope you enjoy my Gratitude Journal!
