~Happy Birthday~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Well it's Wednesday and the 5th day of my dog adventure. I am taking care of my son's dog for a week. They went to the beach for a little r&r.
Apollo misses his family for sure. I decided to stay at my son's home for a few days because of all the rain we are having. His backyard is set up with a long dog run. But, he wasn't sleeping well and on Monday night woke me at 4:30 barking. Instant fear I tell you!!
Well, it started to rain very hard and it was thundering and lightning. The rain pounding on the roof caused the barking and he is afraid of the thunder. So I decided to bring him to my home which was the original plan.
He did well last night. He slept through the night and was good through the day. He even ate all his food today. That's the first time since they left on Saturday.  I have 2 more days yet with him and then I will take him back to his home on Saturday. My son and family should return early Saturday evening.
Well enough of my dog adventures let's get to the card for today. My feminine birthday card is a case of one I made previously. See the original masculine card here
My background paper on my birthday card is from Stampin-Up's "more amore" collection. The balloons and sentiment are from the Stampin'-Up "party this way" set.  I stamped them  in primrose petals ink and then fussy cut. Sentiment is stamped on an MFT bracket die.I cut some streamers from primrose petals card stock.

On the image panel,I used the Stampin'-Up set “gorgeous grunge” to add some background splatters in primrose petals ink. Punched a few raspberry ripple hearts from a Spellbinders die and added to an embossed panel to complete my card. 
Well, that's it for me for today. So until next time.......God bless.
