Happy Birthday card made using YEEHAW and Paper Lace II.

Howdy, everyone!

TGIF! I am so glad it is Friday. I'm bummed though that my DH has to work on Mother's Day. He never usually has to work weekends either, so this is a total surprise and big bummer! Do any of you have a special Mother's Day planned?

Today I have a card I made with the NEW Yeehaw lite cartridge. I am not really into western stuff, so initially I was not crazy about this cartridge. However, upon closer inspection I found lots of fun cuts on it that has nothing to do with the old west!

I Bo Bunny paper.
I cut this 'top note' tag out at 4". The stars were cut out at 2". I cut happy birthday out using the Paper Lace II cartridge out at 1 1/2".

 Thanks so much for stopping by today. I have another project posted over at my other blog. Click here to check it out ==>Courtney Lane Designs

Hope you Mother's Day is filled with love and appreciation! Have a great weekend!

Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs! Have a great day!
