Happy Bird-Day! and a Request for Help

* Please Vote for My School *
My school is attempting to win a $5,000 Natural Pod classroom.  We could very much use your votes.  Please consider going to Natural Pod's Contest Facebook Page and scroll half-way down the page.  In the search button type LIU.  This is the name of the teacher who entered.  Hit the green vote button.  The image should look like this...

It will ask you to confirm the vote by email but you DO NOT need to sign up for any advertising or like on Facebook.  Thank you so much in advance!

Back to my card...

If there is ever a blog challenge to use older stash, I could win.  The flamingo sequence is left over from my Dad's 40th birthday party, back when it was considered funny to "flock" a person's yard with plastic flamingos on their birthday.  He's now 67.  Yes, I am a paper crafting hoarder.  The thing is, I do use them occasionally.  It's just that you only need a few to make a shaker and packages come with so many...

I am a shaker addict though.  I love shakers so when I saw the latest Just Add Ink sketch, I had to play along.  That's when I found the sequins.
