Birthday Card and a Blogaversary

Hope you're having a good weekend. We spent the day with family. My in-laws and niece are here from Southern CA for the weekend. My parents, sister, and niece are arriving in 3 days from New Mexico. So exciting!

Here's a card I made last week for a Cards blog challenge to use eyelets. I have SO many eyelets! How about you? These are tiny ones. I used this Papertrey Ink color combo and the new PTI set, Butterfly Dreams:

I wish I would've have made the Lemon Tart decorative border wider so you can actually see it. It's very hidden behind the ribbon.
I almost forgot that today is my 2-year blogging anniversary for Chavez Designs! I've actually been blogging for over 5 years on my son's blog. I started Chavez Designs to post a card in Kristina's first ever color inspiration challenge, so I owe it to her for getting me started on this blog. What made you start your blog?

It's been so fun meeting several of you along the way. I'm sure I'll get a chance to meet many more of you.

Thanks for stopping by!
