One more day till my Birthday! I actually think I’m excited. Can you tell? I’m doing a birthday card-a-thon! LOL! Seriously though its the most used card topic don’t ya think? I got some cards from friends in the mail, and I will post a photo of them tomorrow! Thanks everyone. I love you all 😀

So, as you all may know I am one the Design team members for Lizzie Anne Designs. You can see my samples in their gallery. Make sure you click on the category (ie birthday, holiday). They have some awesome talented girls workin for them (I hope I can keep up)! SO here you can meet the Design Team! I always find it fun reading about people lives, and the paths they have chosen and why!

ENABLER ALERT! DO NOT click this if you DON’T want to see the NEW! releasescoming out! Money may mysteriously began to fly out of your checking account, and you may even end up with HAPPY mail (thats what I call any delivery with stamping goodies).

My box of goodies should be arriving in the next 2 weeks. Watch out Mr. Mailman! I will be hunting you down.

So until then……here are some little bits of eye candy for you.

The card at the top-I wanted funky and fresh. I didnt have much in the way of Birthday sets from Lizzie Anne so was challenged to do something cool. The present is from their Celebrations II set. I love making things 3D, so for the center gift thats what I did. I also stuck a small piece of tissue paper in the gift box, so its like an open gift.

I stitched (faux of course) around the black layer to continue that pattern in the gift boxes. I LOVE circles, so went with that. No card is complete these days without a cuttlebugged anything!

 For the tag I stamped the happy birthday sentiment from Simply Sentiments multiple times in alternating inks, then cut/rounded the corners.

Ribbon is from AC.

 Happy Birthday 2U


Well this card is different because the gift box is the card. It opens from the bottom. I loved the circle image from Funky Floral, so used that to make my patterned present.

The ribbon was from the Bella Art booth at the stamp expo (make not girlies) and was the inspiration for the card colors.

Used Simply Sentiments again for the round tag, and the “gift for you” on the side.

 Little Bits of birthday wishes

flower wishes

This card is clean and simple. I got the ribbon from the new Martha Stewart line. It inspired this card colors. I used the Little Bits set to make my flowers. Happy Birthday stems were done using  Simply Sentiments set. HAD to add some bling! That would be from K & co.

The awesome flower border is a new punch by Martha’s line. Im not big on those long border punch but have to say I am LOVIN this one!

That all for today. I really hope I get to stamp BUT my nursing license needs renewing TOMORROW, and I have to get 30 hours of CEU’s done from now till then or my license lapses! EEEEK!

I know WHY did I wait. Well, honestly I forgot. I put the paperwork at the bottom of the mail pile and there it lay till yesterday. I really dont want to go back to nursing so I think it was a subconscious thing. I also dont want to lose what I worked SO HARD to get. So I will be reading and testing today in between kids freakin out and needing things.

I actually hoping to continue my love for stamping and making that my “career”. Sounds stupid but I think I can do it! People do! Why not me? NIX my last comment- I WILL do it! LOL! Eventually……………

So till tomorrow!

I will be posting MYTIME MAIL since its my birthday! So be on the look out.
