Girl’s Birthday Card

Wow, the last few weeks have been crazy with a birthday party for Red, getting Father’s Days celebrated early, and going to our kid’s first time to the beach!  We had a great time…we had several photo shoots and mainly just a lot of resting and keeping up with the schedule.  Summer is too short to be tied to the computer too much!

Thought I’d take a second while my computer is processing to post a card I made last month for a birthday party my daughter went to.

I used the “Pottery Barn” font for this, and several other dingbats to create the flowers.  I think I used a DB font for the flowers on this card, perhaps a DB Christmas font for the oval.  I “welded” the sentiment to the oval so that it all cut together–that way I didn’t have to glue individual letters onto the card. I just ran it all through my larger Zyron.

A fun project to watch the Cricut cut.

It REALLY shines!

My husband said, “Gee, I think it needs more glitter!”

I had to touch up a spot with glue about that time to get it to stick down, to which he said, “Um, I was just kidding!”

I just laughed at him.

The party was a luau theme, so the sentiment seemed perfect.  We enjoyed making her something special to keep.


Group Hug!

I’m not sure, but I think the girls were having a good time!  Oh, to be 10 again!

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
