Happy Birthday...........

..........to me :)

Today is my Birthday but if you ask Emma it is her's and she will argue if you say otherwise. LOL! Joe and I are going out for supper tonight (the Diplomat, my first time). We haven't had a babysitter for the 2 of us to do go out in ages. I have her come if he is away when I have stamping but that is about it. It will be a little strange going out without the kids.

This is one of the cards we did at the last stamp camp. The flowers on main circle piece are stamped in white craft ink and embossed in white ep. Then I used a sponge dauber to color the flowers with real red and pumpkin pie and pink passion for the beackground. The colors are really bright and "pop" in real life. The pink piece was stamped in real red and then colored with a pink passion marker and white gel pen. I'm not sure if you can tell but the ribbon is Real Red striped grosgrain and I colored part of it with an Only orange marker.

We started planting our veggies last night. We are a little late but I guess it is better late than never, right? Our strawberries are looking awesome! The blossoms are turning into green strawberries already. I am so excited! This is our first year with strawberries on the plants so it will be interesting to see how they turn out. I am going to try to get out later to take pics.

Have a great day!

HAppy Belated Birthday, Karen! The card is lovely! I need to try some more "stuff" with the chalks, I just don't know what to do with them most of the time.

Happy belated b'day!!! Hope the diplomat was worth the wait!!! Isn't it great to spend time alone without the kiddies? (I love my kids, but I need time away sometimes with the hubby). Have a great day!
