Sketch 244~Happy Birthday.. Happy New Year Calendar.

If you are looking for my guest designer card you will find it here.
Well Goodness gracious.  January Birthday's especially those early in the month are some of the hardest for me to remember.  Perhaps because of Christmas, My daugther's birthday, and New Years.. but this year especially with the wedding (my daughter's) only 27 days away.  My mom's failing health.  Btw-she is back in the hospital this evening.  Please continue to pray for her that she will have peace and that she knows Jesus.  Thank you 💜  So with a few things going on I completely forgot that my mother-in-law's birthday is the 7th Of January.  So being I just made a card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge
I thought this was a fabulous sketch to use again.  So hence the birthday card.   I used the Avant Garden from stampin up along with a single stamp that has the lovely quote on it.   I used a few different pattern papers for the background, and stamped the Birthday sentiment in the corner.  I really like how it turned out.  
Image may contain: christmas tree and dogI'm also adding the before and after picture of my planner for the Month of January.  Did you notice the "LOVE BIRDS" wedding date?  How sweet.. or should I say how tweet.  haha.   
I wanted to share one more picture with ya all.  My silly dog and his Christmas picture.  How cute is he?  He loves to be on the footstool.

Thank you all for stopping by for a visit.  Thank you for being part of my blog family and staying in touch, either here or on facebook.  Cards have a way of connecting us to our creative friends.  For that I'm grateful.  
My your new year be blessed with Good health, The love of family and friends.  The ever present need to know the Savior more. 
Keep Smiling And Keep Stamping.
