{card sharks} week 1

The Nook is keeping us busy with the Card Sharks contest!  Hilde's challenge is based on the UNO card game and  has us featuring the number 1 on a card.  I love a little banner on a card and had this number 1 left over so I came up with this birthday card.

Happy Birthday

Paper:  MME and EP, Number sticker: MME, Sentiment: SRM, Punches: Fiskars, Marvy

It is a lovely fall day here in Michigan!  There was frost on the ground when we woke up, but it has been sunny all day.  I am thankful I got to have breakfast with my bestie this morning after having all the boys' hair cut!  Hoping to work on the last challenge of the week today. 

Happy Saturday!  Remember, "if you want to be happy, be".


  1. hi Jan! I love this bright, happy card! The center banner w/strung banner on top is so fun! Love all of the little white stars too. It was a nice day here too! I started painting my bedroom (stop laughing!). Got the ceiling and trim done, cleaning and de-cluttering as I go. hugs, patti
