Card A Day: Kiddie Card and PTI MIM #132: Layered die cut borders

It's my turn again to make a card for the Card a Day blog.  The theme this week is Kiddie Cards.   Once again I got this done at the very last minute.  I do have a good excuse this time though.  But..before I get into some personal matters I want to share my card with you.

I loved Kristina's One Cool Kid card here.   I pinned it knowing one of these days I must case it.  Well today was the day!  I also loved the scalloped layered borders Dawn used in her latest PTI MIM #132 video here.    So I decided to substitute the straight diagonal strips with the scallop border strips instead.  It's a little busy but kids tend to like bold prints.  I couldn't resist adding some glittery sparkle to this fun card on the main star using multicolored Stickles.  I cut the title out with my digital cutter using vinyl so I didn't have to worry about lining up the individual letters.  Font used was MFT Skinny Jeans.  PTI stamps used: Patterned Stars: Everyday Classics (anniversary), "You're": Paper Tray , Small stars after You're: Let Freedom Ring.

Okay now for what has taken my time lately.  Last Wednesday my husband had a heart attack.  He is 39!  We were totally shocked!  They put a stent in and placed him on a ton of medicines and thankfully he is doing great.  But..boy we sure were worried!  Heart problems do run in his side of the family so that has one thing to do with it but we also need to make an effort to eat better and exercise more.  So if any of you have any good recipes suitable for a heart healthy diet I sure would appreciate you sharing them!

Enjoy the rest of your week!  Please stop by again!
