Happy Birthday

TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm a whole year older. Am I thrilled about it? Eh, it's another year closer to 30. At least I get prezzies. That makes up for getting older.

A special surprise was that my Papertrey order arrived today - I didn't get an email from them that it had shipped or anything. It was a nice treat to get stamping goodies.

I also got to see one of my college friends whom I haven't seen in a while. She was driving through on her way to a job interview, so we got together after she got done for a snack.

I had the day off, so I actually got some stamping done. *gasp, shock, horror* Not only that, I did a challenge on the day it was issued, and I'm UPLOADING it on the same day.

Wonders will never cease.

The CC for today was Taken with Teal, Wild Wasabi, and Whisper White.

Well, I was at the Local Scrapbooking Store (LSS) and they had this set of Doodlebug flock colors (tiny bottles of 12 different colors) and I couldn't resist getting it, along with some Doodlebug stickers that work with the glitter or flock - Always being one of the stickers in the set.

It's a No Stamping card. :)
Stamps: none! Paper: Taken with Teal, Wild Wasabi (cs and dp), Whisper White. Ink: Wild Wasabi - to sponge on an edge. Accessories: glue dots, ribbon, dimensionals, Doodlebug stickers, flock.

Earlier today, I had an idea for part of a card pop into my head. It was a background of Flourishes' Damask stamped in River Rock on white cardstock. Everything else was fuzzy, but I wanted the sandy color of River Rock against the white. I also wanted to keep that as open as I possibly could and not hide it away under a big main image, so I just stamped the flower from SU's One of a Kind in River Rock on white and cut it out. I layered it on a black scalloped circle punch out and added a black jumbo brad. I pulled some sheer white and black polka dotted ribbon through the eyelet and tied a knot.
Stamps: Flourishes - Damask, SU - One of a Kind. Paper: River Rock, Basic Black, Whisper White. Ink: River Rock. Accessories: jumbo eyelet, ribbon, dimensionals.

Hoping everyone had a good day,
