Speedy TV and Birthdays

It's another Monday challenge with the Friends of Speedy TV.  Today's challenge is all about birthdays.  Who doesn't need a birthday card?  I am always running out of these, especially the masculine variety.  With all of the fun and fancy embellishments that are available these days, it's hard to keep it simplified.  I think it did it here though!  I repeated that tree a bunch of times to get that forest on there.  I only reinked it a few times so that I would get some variation in the color of my trees as well.  I did one thing here that I rarely do, as it feels criminal most of the time.  I cut apart my stamp so that I could lengthen my sentiment to fit my flag.  Have you ever cut apart a stamp?  How does it make you feel?  If you get some time today, it would be great if you could play along! 

After a full week off from work, I head back to school today.  Let's hope I can remember my job! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Monday.

Details - Stamps: A Walk in the Woods (MFP), Buffalo Spring (MFP); Paper: Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso; Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso; Accessories: Earth Elements button, paper snips, stampin' dimensionals.
