Birthday Blast Tutorial

Hi Friends! Well, as I suspected, Mother Nature was saving her winter blast till the end. Yesterday we awoke to more than half a foot of snow and today we woke to a layer of ice everywhere! We're still getting snow/ice rain so it's pretty icky outside. I must say, to be able to work from home, with a cozy woodstove (and my two hounds snuggled at my feet), is something I am incredibly grateful for.

Today I have a fun card to share with you, featuring the "Birthday Blast" bundle:
