Birthday Banner!!!!

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all had
 a wonderful Easter weekend! Mine was alright.
I tried not to do to much this weekend since I know
I have a lot going on.... Hunter & I colored 30 eggs
on Saturday... it was a lot of fun for the 2 of us. Then
Sunday morning I hid the eggs throughout the house....
He found 17 of them and then Juston found the rest....
This is the first year that I gave them only chocolate
in their Easter baskets... In the past I've always put little
gifts with candy... They didn't seem to mind just
getting candy, so I think I'll start doing that instead of
adding other things... It's cost effective too! LOL
Any who.... Here is my project for today! :o)

This is a super simple My Digital Studio Hybrid Card!
I used my Stampin' Up Digital Program and the design came from
a digital design in the program..... The size that they had was for a
5 x 7 card... Well I don't make too many of those so I had to
re-do the card myself to fit a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card size... 
 The only part that took me a little time was
placing the banner pieces where I wanted them.... I basically used the
"Punch" Feature and made each banner piece (sizing them accordingly)
 and adding the colors to them, then placing them next to each other
and turning each piece to get that swag look to it....
Then I added the sentiment and printed it out on white card stock.
I trimmed it & added it to a blue card stock base.
I wish I had time to make a video and show you, so let's hope
I explained it fairly well to ya! :o)
Made some Red/White twine bows and attached some
fun buttons and there is a super simple digital hybrid card!
This is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card. I'll be back tomorrow
with another weekly layout to show you!

Thanks soooo much for stopping by and leaving me a comment....
I LOVE reading them! In the mean time have an AWESOME DAY!!!

I love banners and the colors of this one are energizing. Wish I could sit and make banners all day. haha unfortunately I have to go to the dentist. yuk! But I love this one. It's a simple design but so cute. Just perfect. With all you have going on, it hasn't messed up your mojo.
