Happy Birthday..........

Well it's that time of year again when alot of our family are having birthdays.  It's hard for me to believe, but my youngest son turns 17 next month.  Just doesn't seem possible.  Sometimes I tell my self  "Whoooohoooo, I'll have more room in the house, less laundry to wash, less dishes to clean, etc."  But I mostly tell myself,  "How will I handle missing my kids that I love so much and have had at home every day since they were born?"  Guess every mom goes through this so called "Empty Nest."

This weeks project for The Cutting Cafe is done using

This POSTAGE STAMP SHAPED CARD template - cutting file features the following:
1 postage stamp shaped card - approx. 4 by 4.5 inches. (with a top layer)
2 mini postage stamps (photo not shown below)
7 other mini postage stamp images (approx. .835 by 1 inch)
The file comes in the following formats: PDF, SVG, MTC, WPC and JPEG
(here are a few images from this set)

This stamp/cutting file is so versital and can be used for just about any event.  Since I have so manyfamily and friends birthday's coming up, I thought I would make it into a birthday card.

With being so busy with everything, the silhouette makes it so easy to create quick and easy projects.  Again, I used the print and cut feature and added some sparkle to the birthday hat.  Hope you enjoy!
Don't forget to stop by The Cutting Cafe!
