Happy 8th birthday!

I had a day off from work yesterday and arranged to have lunch up with two online bloggers - Jenny from My Paper Epiphany and Lyndal from Dreams and Other Realities. It was great to meet in person rather than over our blogs and we had fun comparing notes. I was in the mood for making a card when I got home last night and wanted to make one for the Paper Smooches Cool Shades challenge. This is my card I made with my one and only Paper Smooches stampset and dies. I wanted to do a washi tape card and I have picked up a lot of new followers on Pinterest due to a discussion on Splitcoast Stampers forum on Washi Tape.

Well, I had a sleepness night as I was not happy with the card. So the next day, when I got another chance, I made another card, see below. I must admit I am much happier with the square format as I can fit the sentiments onto the card. 
Just a quick mention, my Graduation card got a Red Carpet Spotlight this week! Yay, my first submission to Red Carpet and it got spotted!!
Thanks for dropping by!
