5, 4, 3, 2, 1...

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I was in Washington, D.C. last week for work and had a whirl-wind week. I got to see my boss and her husband for the first time in ~7 years (we live across the country from each other). It was a great reunion of sorts to see several of the people I used to work with. The meeting was the start of my busiest time of year for work, but now I will procrastinate...

I've been so bad about updating my blog and making my blog rounds, and this week, I'm going to try and post every day (at least try!). I have dozens of cards and projects I haven't shared, and so I thought I would start with a gift bag that was in the Paper Crafts magazine's Jan./Feb. issue:

Birthday Countdown Giftbag

This bag has die cutting, coloring, fussy cutting, and masking--whew! The little astronaut, the star, and the countdown numbers are from Technique Tuesday. I masked the numbers (it's a continuous row of numbers) to fit the sketch. 

Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful day!!

Here are the details:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper (Rocket Age) October Afternoon
Clear Stamps: (Out of This World) Technique Tuesday; ("happy birthday" from Bake Me a Cake) Lawn Fawn
Dye Ink: (Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Markers: Copics
Sticker: (moon from Rocket Age collection) October Afternoon
