Birthday Card from Cardabilities and Paper Smooches Inspiration

Hey everyone!
I'm actually writing this post from my phone. This is a first for me so I hope it turns out okay. I just wanted to pop in on this rainy Canadian Thanksgiving day to share with you a card I made using this weeks sketch - Sketch #84 over at Cardabilities and the Designer Drafts over at Paper Smooches.  This weekend was a Hat Trick of Celebrations as it was Canadian Thanksgiving, My hubby's parents 47th wedding anniversary and my hubby's dad's birthday!  Wahoooo!
The newsprint background: Hero Arts; sentiment: Paper Smooches; star die cuts: Quickkutz;background gear embossing: Sizzix, paper: DCWV,MME; border punch: EK Success; banner die cut: Simon Says Stamp

This card was soooo much fun to make and used up scraps which is great!  I'll post the deets when I get home tomorrow. 

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm back from a weekend of great food, great family, belly laughs and feeling blessed.  Thanksgiving will do that do a person!  It's wonderful!

Today is still a day off up here in the great white north (yay!) so the family is (hopefully) headed to a corn maze for some fun!

Here are the sketches that my card was based on!  
I would also like to submit it to the following blogs:
