Thinkin' of You!!

Happy Wednesday to you friends! We're halfway thru the week, yay! I'm off to lunch today with some friends and then my weekly trip to the Post Office, hee hee. I'm hoping like "Annie" that the sun will come out today, lol--it's been wayyy too gray here and I'm needing some light!  Last night we went to my daughter's last choral concert for middle school and she had a solo again--omgoodness that makes me nervous.  I know she'll be fabulous, but it makes me nervous and I worry if her throat catches and will it embarrass her--makes me sick to my tummy, lol!  Just like when she danced on stage--I was a nervous wreck each time--she just laughs and tells me not to worry, it's no big deal, lol!  But she did wonderfully of course and it was lovely--we went out to dinner afterwards to celebrate :)  She does much better than I would've done at that age--I HATE getting up in front of a roomful of people--YUCK! Not my thing at all, but kudos to her for being able to.

Some of you asked about my craft room and here on my blog I have a full tour of my craft room (when it's clean of course) under the tab at the top of my blog that says "All About Me" if you're interested.  Those glass candy jars I got online from Wasserstrom's (they're called cookie jars) HERE.

Thinkin' of You on Your Birthday

I'm sharing a fun birthday card with you today using a NEW CC Designs stamp--I love the CC Designs Swiss Pixies (see the line here) they're always too sweet & cute to resist!  The papers I've used are NEW from Kaisercraft called "Devonshire"--beautiful papers in this paper pad, love the colors.  The sketch is from this past week's Friday's Sketchers--great sketch!

This CC Designs stamp "Laying Nora" is called I distressed most of my paper edges just softly, not too much with my Zutter Distress machine.  The blue flowers are from Prima, but the large peach one is from Magnolia and the rosebuds are from Wild Orchid.  I used my fave Bow Easy tool to create the double bow and that sentiment is from PTI's "Dahlia" stamp set.

I've colored her with Copics (E25,E31,E50 on hair/ B02,B00,B0000 & R02,R00,R0000 on dress) and then added some stardust stickles to the dress and flower.  Isn't she just a cutie?

I'll see ya tomorrow!
