Silhouette and Authentique Birthday Celebration

Good Tuesday morning - can you believe this is a birthday card for someone in October - now why isn't it for the person who had a birthday in June or August.  Do you get behind on your cards like I do - and of course - how many have I sent out to Operation Write Home - maybe I should have stolen some of those for my friends with birthdays.

This card is for the challenge at The Cameo Spotlight - a new challenge blog for Silhouette users - the challenge is to use numbers.  These numbers are from a small card on the Silhouette site - I thought they were perfect for a birthday card.

I used Authentique paper - from their Carefree Collection.  Beautiful colors.  If you have not tried their paper - please treat yourself - the paper is double sided - there is always a solid on the backside of each sheet.

Another treat - is to watch Wheelchair Basketball at the Parolympics going on right now in London.  I know several players and their significant others on the men's team.  They will play again on Wednesday at 7 a.m. central time.

Have a wonderful day.
