Birthday Card

Good morning!

Is anyone else just overwhelmed with all of fun craft stuff they want to buy this month?!
Every morning i check Tim's blog to see the 12 tags of christmas and he ends up adding about another $100 of product to my wishlist with each tag. Then I bought my new Hero Arts Stamps yesterday (and let me say YAY!!!!! can't wait to ink those up!). Lawn Fawn is having their contest to be in their CHA booth and catalog, but i didn't have the 4 sets to use in the challenge, so of course i needed those. Then to top it all off, papertrey ink is doing it again; i haven't seen anything in the sneak peeks that i don't want yet!
makes me wish i hadn't passed out wishlists for christmas and my birthday yet :)

as some of you know i took a ridiculous spill on some ice on tuesday. i mean really ridiculous, as in worthy of a goofy cartoon kind of a fall. and the worst part of it was that i KNEW the ice was there, i avoided it going into my friend's house (it was on her sidewalk/walkway to the house thing) and even pointed it out to my mom so she wouldn't slip. Came back out of the house and my feet flew right out in front of me, and i landed full force on my tail. ouch.
well i'm pretty pleased to say that i don't think it's broken, i can wiggle and hop around again now, the only time it hurts is when i have to bend down to pick something up from the floor.
i am a little leery of going (on purpose) ice skating this season though, i've probably tempted fate quite enough for one holiday season :)

well if you're still here reading this then you definitely deserve to see a card!

here's a pretty one :)
I just love building my backgrounds with the guidelines 2 set, LOVE it.

through the trees

Here's a pretty masculine (oxymoron much?) card i made ages ago, i've been working on a huge order of cards for a friend and so i've been going back through my old cards these past few weeks rather than making anything new. It's been killing me because i got my new banner builder set and my new year of flowers mums set from pti AND the twas the night before christmas set (which is my first set from waltzingmouse stamps!) and i haven't allowed myself to ink them up yet until i finish my friend's order. (torture!)

i should be done with all of her cards and tags tonight and i can't wait to make some new things and maybe a few things for the papercrafts submission call :)

and on tuesday afternoon i'm heading up to scrapdoodles to get the december issue of cards magazine with my first published card!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i can't wait to see it!

anyways, my break is over and i'm off to finish my order so i can earn some christmas present money :)

Thanks for stopping by!
