Happy Birthday to......

ME!!!!  That's right folks, it is my birthday today and I am gonna have some fun!  My first gift was when my daughter crawled in bed in the middle of the night for some cuddles....aww!  Then she and my hubby woke me up with more kisses and hugs.  Off to work now but only for a half day, then lunch with a friend, followed by craft time and more festivities with the family!  AWESOME!

It is only appropriate that I share a birthday card with you today.  I made it a few days back for the 10 Minute Craft Dash #20 over at Pretty Pink Posh.  I love the colors Paulina chose this round, so vibrant and fun!  So the rules allow you to gather your supplies before you start and here are all of my supplies in an orderly fashion, I even pointed out the most important supply- COFFEE! I have to say, knowing, down to the smallest detail, what you are going do do before hand really helps!  I even made sure I had the matching markers before I started.  (Note: Paulina has tips for the CD here, I just read them for the first time, might have helped me sooner to read them before- ha!)  So here is the card and the time I completed it in.  Ah-mazing! :)

Which reminds me, the sentiment is from my new CAS-ual Friday's stamp set Exclamations.  I won that on the last reveal, super awesome and perfect for a birthday card on my birthday!  The elephant is SU! along with the ink, markers and base card stock.  I had the DP in my scrap bin, don't remember who that is from, maybe American Crafts...  Again, don't know the ribbon, but the wood chips are from Freckled Fawn.

So, here is part of the mess afterwards.  I often have to clean up and with a fresh and super clean table (this is my dining room table btw) in order to be able to create anything else.  If not, the jumble on the table becomes a jumble in my mind and me no-likey.

I am thinking about seeing a movie this weekend.  Are there any out there that you've seen and recommend?

A very Happy Birthday to you! Love your bright, fun card. It almost looks Bohemian to me. Maybe it's the elephant sporting his cool party hat!
