Make It Monday # 146 Angled Backgrounds

Talk about using up my scrap paper stash! Woo Hoo!! Ashley showed us how to make angled backgrounds without a die. This was a great challenge for using all those paper scraps lying around that you don't have the heart to throw away. You can find the challenge at Nichole's BLOG.

 I really needed to make a birthday card for one of my big brothers since his birthday is January 2nd. I wish I had a picture of him with my Mom way back in '61 when he was baby of the year. Believe it or not, no-one was born on the 1st at Cape Fear Valley Hospital in Fayetteville, NC!    Anyway, on to the card:
 This next picture, I tried to get a close up of the washi tape I added, it says "made with love".
I guess I need to invest in a new lens for close-ups one of these days! That's the best I could do.

PTI Supplies: Birthday die, Dark Chocolate CS,
and" Happy" stamp from Wreath for All Seasons.

Happy New Year to ALL!!

 Happy Birthday to my dear brother Jeff too!
TTFN,  Jen
