Subway Art Birthday

Happy April! I cannot believe that it is April and my kids are still wearing heavy coats. I'm resisting the late surge of cool temperatures and only using sweatshirts but I am freezing in the mornings. April Fools indeed!

April brings many birthdays in my family. Tomorrow my darling niece turns eight. We were delighted to get to spend a little bit of time with her last weekend, chomping on Krispy Kreme doughnuts (a tradition for each of their visits to VA). I sent off a little something for her yesterday and included this card because her favorite color is purple.



This card is similar to this one from a few weeks ago. I really like the way the subway art signs look - clean, simple, retro and a little bit fun. The stamps used (as well as the ribbon and button) are from various sets that are *new* from a muse studio. It was fun to mix and match to pull this one together. Hope you have a fantastic spring weekend!
