Happy third birthday to my sweet Vienna! We’ll hopefully be spending a couple hours at the park – her favorite place to go run run run!

I don’t know if it’s her actual birthday today, of course; she arrived at my house in September and we could only guess at her age. Which would put her birthday around this time of year. I picked valentines day because, well, I’m single and need something else to celebrate today, ya know? So we celebrate my girl each year!

Impression Obsession came out with a couple cute stamps – My Best Friend, and Love Language –I wasn’t sure what size they were when I ordered them, but Love Language is a little bigger than My Best Friend – so I ended up making a card with a foreground stamp and background stamp by stamping “off” the first pass of ink on the background image. That way it only stamped a little of the ink, and made it lighter in the background.
