Oh, I had the best Birthday ever.....

spent the day just talking and using my new lil Cricut and working on a card (hubby asked me to make) and eating two of my very favorite things---pizza and cheesecake with cherries! And then a beautiful handmade card from my best friend Shelly and presents--a birthday bag full of awesome papers and some bling ribbon and white ribbon with black pokadots (perfect--I had black ribbon with white pokadots--but not visa versa!)

And then the Pagoda cartridge that hubby got me was in the mail! And dd Laura took me to see the Eclipse (twilight series) movie after a wonderful shrimp dinner at our new Cheddars with hubby and daughter! Dear Dau got me the new book on cd of Stephenie Meyer (author of Twilight series) the short second life of bree tanner! Will be listening to that. She reads alot so I made her a rather big bookmark. She loves Japanese food and their culture--so this was off the new Pagoda cartridge.

And I finished a card Terry asked me to make for a fellow workers who's mother is in the hospital. I saw one like this on someones blog, and of coarse now I can't find who's! If it is yours, let me know and I will give a link and give you credit--I don't steal--I give credit where credit is due--and this is not my original idea. I did add some of my touches and a stamp on the inside. I really like how it came out and I think will make some extras to have just in case!

I got the flowers off of Sweat Treats cartridge and the vase off of Walk in my Garden cart. The leaves where a touch I added, from another new cartridge I just got, Accent Essentials. I added a tag too, from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More (which is being retiring and I advise everybody to get this--it is my go to when I need some special touches on a card!) and a stamp that says 'get well soon'. I added dots with my gel pen. Terry said she likes flowers, so that is why I made this one.

I forgot to mention that Shelly had printed off a Hobby Lobby & Michaels coupon, so before we met hubby for dinner, we ran (or I scooted -- I use a scooter!) into Michaels and I found the Butterfly stamp/punch of Martha Stewarts that I wanted--and some journaling stamps I have been looking for--never thought of looking in the Martha Stewart isle--always looking in the stamps isle! Duh! So I got 40% off my Butterfly punch/stamp. Three different stamps of Butterflies--Look at Laura's bookmark and you will see all three! I colored them in and I think they look cute!

Well, I might try and take some pictures of my new papers later.

Thanks for stopping by and I love comments!
