Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to Me, Happy Birthday to me .....

This was taken last week during a Raft Up with friends on the Lake.
I don't think I shared this birthday card I made for a friend.  The funny thing is I made the card and was going to drop it by her house since she lives in my neighborhood.  But then I couldn't find it.  I looked everywhere for it.  I was pretty sure it was in my car some place because I remembered taking it to the car when I went to play cards one day.  But do you think I could find it?  Well, I thought, maybe I took it by her house and just forgot!  Anyway about a week or so later, I found it .... in the car under my seat!  She ended up getting the card about a month late!  Hey - better late than never, you know!

 I used Summer Starfruit with the Sahara Sand card.  The stamp set is "From My Heart" stamped and die cut with the labels framelit.  The background piece is a wheel called Etruscan Elegance Wheel.  I haven't bought or used a wheel in so long but I really like this one.  Now I just need to remember to use it more often!  Watch out Stamp Club - may be using it this month!  I also used the Color Spritzer tool (pg 119) to put drops of ink on the die cut image.  I sponged the die cut piece with Summer Starfruit and stamped the "enjoyed" separately and popped it up.

Here is a close up of the image and the flower.  The little flower was made using a Cuttlebug die that Marianne gave me for Christmas last year.  Makes a cute little flower. 

I hope you took advantage of the items SU put in their Clearance Bin this weekend.  I ordered a few things but a lot of stuff went fast!  I was having a problem with a few of the digital items that weren't showing up in my order with the right price.  By the time, I called SU and got an answer, several of the items I had in my order had already sold out  - like the magnet sheets and all the envelopes.  I was bummed but I still got some good deals - red grosgrain ribbon, Vanilla Velvet ribbon, heart punch, card stock and some digital items for pretty cheap.  I love those kind of deals.

I had a pretty quiet weekend.  I spent a lot of time finalizing my Christmas cards for the Christmas Stamp A Stack I am having in November.  I will be posting details about it if you live in the area and would like to come.

From My Heart

Have you ever started out with a good idea only to have it go in the complete opposite direction?  That is the story for this card.

I started out creating a transparency card.  There is a bit of the transparency (acetate sheet) on the card but I ended up cutting most of it off because it just wasn't working for me.  The Espresso cardstock is behind the transparency and the DSP (retired) in on top of the transparency.  Oh well .... I tried to do something a little different.  It is a great man's card - I have trouble with those anyway.  The sentiment is from From My Heart and "enjoying" is embossed with Copper embossing powder and popped up. 

Paper:  Early Espresso, River Rock, Acetate Sheet, Well Worn DSP

Stamp:  From My Heart
Access:  Copper Emb. Powder, non SU Nestability

I think my mom had a great birthday yesterday.  I didn't see her - I had a dentist appointment (ugh) and she wasn't home much anyway.  Angela took her to her swim exercise class in the morning and then to lunch with one of her friends from swim class.  They went to a pizza place downtown that Mom used to go to a lot with her friend, Marie.  Marie died last year and Mom lost her lunch buddy so hasn't been back.  The owner made a big fuss over seeing Mom again and that made her day.  Afterwards, she and Angela went to have a mani-pedi and a massage.  She had about an hour at home before they hit the road again to dinner and a meeting with the Lion's Club.  I haven't talked to her today because I guess she may still be recovering!  I am so glad she is feeling better and is able to do a lot of what she used to do.  She still hurts some and takes the pain meds but not on a regular basis like before.  I really believe the Physical Therapy and getting out of her chair and moving has helped tremendously.
