Happy Sale-A-Bration!!!

Happy belated New Year to you all!!
So let me just explain my lack of blogging. Our family moved to a new house over the holidays! We spent our first night in the new house on Christmas Eve! Thank heavens Santa got our change of address! Then my Granddad on my mothers side took a bad fall, we lost him New Years Night! I have been cleaning, folding, unpacking (mainly the crafty space) and still trying to keep up with every day chores... It has not been easy! I have found that my juices are flowing first thing in the morning lately so as soon as the kids are on the bus, this Mother Tucker has been stamping!
Let me just say that today's card started with some help of a sketch at Operation Write Home-Gift Boxes . We also have this as a weekly challenge on our group One Stamp At A Time Cards & More on Facebook. So I decided to try it out using some of my new toys!!

So I am calling this card Happy Sale-A-Bration!
I started with a standard A2 Base in Calypso Coral Card stock with an embossed matted layer in Coastal Cabana Card Stock using the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I then cut Best Year Ever DSP out of the Sale-A Bration Catalog (Free if you spend $50) to the dimensions given in the sketch found in the above link. The cute little bow was made using our new Bow Builder Punch and I cut a 1/4 inch strip of Calypso Coral Card Stock to go with the bow. Last but not least, I heat embossed in White Stampin' Emboss Powder "Happy Birthday" from the Big Day Stamp set also out of the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Bright, Cheery and Fun!!
