Speaking of birthdays...

I sat down at my stamping desk to make a special birthday card for some special team members last month, and of course I had to use some new products! I pulled out my new Petite Curly Label Punch and matching stamp set (both are free Sale-a-Bration products!) and this is what I came up with:

I've used the International Bazaar papers, because I wanted something with a small pattern in lots of colours. It almost looks like Moroccan tiles to me. I love the contrast of all that colour with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.
...and speaking of birthdays, I have a BIG birthday coming up on Wednesday next week (I know, can you believe it, I'm 30 already?? LOL) I'm not really a birthday party kind of gal, so when hubby asked me what I wanted to do to celebrate, I said that I'd like to have a week off cooking. He's totally taken that on board and I was told yesterday that we're having a night out in a fancy hotel tonight, followed by a week of surprises and dinners out with special friends and family. How sweet is he??
I don't have any classes scheduled either, so I'm going to have a lovely lazy week indeed! He's even banned me from cleaning the house. To me, that's better than a party any day!


  1. WOW - I love this card. The effect is stunning. Sounds like you are in for a lovely week - enjoy and Happy 30th Birthday (again)
