Celebrate...

Good morning!

I'm the host for today's blog post at ScrapTownLady's blog, and I have a fun card to share.  No stamping.  Yep, none!  The ScrapTownLady store is sponsoring a challenge this week.  "Bird is the Word".  In this challenge, the layout sketch must be followed, and along with each sketch is a word that must be included in your creation.  The word for this challenge is "Celebrate".   To every mom or dad out there that has totally enjoyed summer vacation with their kids, but is also totally excited that school will soon be in session, this one's for you!

This card went together so quickly!  The sentiment is computer generated.

And here is the sketch:

If you participated in the fun at Bird is the Word - you could win a very nice gift card to the ScrapTownLady store.  Hopefully, while you are out and about, you canl stop by the ScrapTownLady blog, and become a follower!

Designer's Tip:  You can have a beautiful coordinating sentiment like the one on my card, anytime you like.  Just type and print what you want in your word program.  Adhere a piece of patterned paper directly over the word, and print again. Voila!
