The 4th, A Riley Birthday, and an Award

Good morning! I am back home and what a weekend! It is always nice visiting my sister's place because she and her hubby are the best hosts ever! Lots of food, drinks, and attention. My niece and nephew (especially my niece) just dote on the twins. Here is a picture of their very fun pool.
For those of you who would like more details of the continued saga of my previous week check out my FAMILY blog.


And now to my card. July 2nd was my sister's birthday and this was the card I made for her. I used the Sophie G Cake Moose stamp from Hanna Stamps but masked off the majority of the cake. I think having the one layer cake is more of a birthday look. I added a candle from one of my other stamp sets. I paired the stamp with Papertrey ink's Pink Patterns designer paper.

: Berry Sorbet, Pink Patterns, Stamper's Select White (PTI), Ink: Palette Noir Black, Stamps: Sophie G Moose (Hanna stamps), Women of Life (PTI), Other: Ribbon (PTI), Copics, Nestabilities

And finally, I received an award from Toni (CardsNCandles). Thank you Toni, make sure you click on the link I provided and check out her great blog. She's another person that I can add to my list of British Isle friends I now have. I believe that we "met" up via Jak :)

So, its my turn to nominate 7 people and I decided I would do it this time because I haven't done it in a while. So here is my list for this time.

Emily (sayewhat?)
Lauren (Mytime)
Lauren (groppi girls)
Kay (Kopperhead)
Emily (In Em's Closet)
Erica ( One Creative Life)
Michele (I am Derby)

Most of you know the rules by now and how you want to interpret them... who knows, maybe its a faux paux not to list the rules verbatim so please don't get offended since I didn't and if you are offended let me know nicely.

Link 7 people if you would like :)

Thanks for visiting :)

Gosh that pool looks inviting - or at least it would if the weather would get out of the 60's here in our high summer British weather! Love the moose card, so cute.

Nice card Katie! I sure wish my backyard looked a little more like that one. I'm lucky enough to have a pool though.
