it’s my birthday!

TWENTY SIX. Yup, I’m 26 today. Happy birthday to me!

I’m really excited for what today brings! Surprises are happening here and there, and I’m loving it. The sun is shining. The weather’s warm, and I’ve got a big smile on my face.

The celebrating has been going on since the beginning of this month, but it just keeps on going. It seems the older we get, the better they get. 🙂

Yesterday, I got the most pleasant surprise. Julie sent these over to me, and it could not be any more fitting! It now sits on our coffee table, and every time I see it I smile! Thank you, Julie! You are way too sweet. 🙂

LOVE that smiley! 🙂

Maui loves it too! She sends kisses to the family and to Mr. Dandy too!

Today was my day to post over at the Kiki Art blog. I shared a couple of my latest cards. Hope you like them as much as I do.

Isn’t that stamped image adorable?! It’s from a stamp that Mo sent over to me. Rubber stamps really amp it up to cute, cute, and cute! I totally love that little plastic safety pin. I found it lying around in my random embellishment stash.

Here’s a get well card housing a handful of bandages for those boo boos:

For details on both of these cards, click here. Again, feel free to leave me some love over there.

Last but not least, I finally had a chance to cut up some My Mind’s Eye paper that my friend, Amber, sent to me for winning a challenge.

I used the following sketch:

I slightly altered it and created a layout about my parents. They really are perfect for each other!

I have learned that leftovers are always great for cards too!

That’s it for today. Now, it’s time to celebrate!
