Happy (Birthday) + A Heartfelt Thank You

On Monday, my local craft store had a Boxing Day Sale and all the 2011 Hero Arts releases were 27% off! I couldn't help but buy a few including two bicycle sets and some large sentiments. I used the tiniest of the bicycles for this card and there are happy birthday sentiments inside. This card is for my friend Andy whose birthday is this weekend. It only took 15 minutes to whip up this card since I used Echo Park's A Walk in the Park sticker elements. This was the first time I used stickers on a card. It was fun and I can see how it might be addictive. ;)

I would like to thank everyone who left a comment or emailed me after my last Happenings of the Heart post. I was overwhelmed by the love and hugs you sent my way and they really did lift me up. I'm feeling much better these days and want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for caring so much!
