Happy Birthday Lindsay!

This week we are celebrating Lindsay's birthday. Woo hoo - Happy Birthday Lindsay! I won't sing for you. I wouldn't want to torture you on your birthday. But, in honor of her special day, the DT is making birthday themed projects this week.

My birthday card uses the cupcake from Sweet Treats 2. Doesn't that look yummy? Only thing better would be if it was real...and chocolate.

To help celebrate her birthday, Lindsay is offering 34% off all products in her mygrafico store. I see a new freebie over there, so that must be a gift for you.

Please stop by Lindsay's blog to wish her a Happy Birthday. The rest of the DT also has some fabulous birthday themed cards and projects.

Before I go, here is a peek at the inside of my card. I am having one of those days where everything is torn, crooked or smeared. I smeared some ink on the inside and am redoing the panel but wanted to get my post up on time. Check out that strategically placed watermark..... It will be fixed (replaced) before the card is mailed out.

Thank you for looking!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
