World Card-making Day!

I know it was on Saturday, but I figured everyone else would be posting their pics then, and no one would remember my absolutely beautiful cards! (hahaha) I actually did make this card on Sat. but it was almost midnight, and I didn't think anyone would be looking for it then. Besides, I wanted to post the pic of my table-runner before that, so now that you've all seen it, I can finally post my card....
I needed a few birthday cards, and I love this layout, so I made about 4 of them in 10 minutes. I just got some new DP and the new In Colour cardstock from Stampin' Up, so I put them together and voila!

My table runner

I've been wanting a table runner for a while now. I have an oak dining-room table, but it needs to be refinished, so it's generally covered up. I have a Dutch woolen tablecloth, but sometimes I just want something a little less "heavy" on the table. I've made a few runners, but they always were for someone else. I finally sat down last week, found a pattern that I liked, and made this one! It was designed to have "points" at both ends, but I ran out of one of the fabrics I needed, and I decided that square ends would be just fine. I love the saying "Better done than perfect" - it's one I can live with!
