It's Cutting Cafe Give Away Day!!

Today's the day, today's the day!!  You still have time to go HERE, follow the directions and get your name in for this HUGE and ADORABLE Cutting Cafe Cute Critter set and the Candy Box template!!

For this card, I used the Ladybugs that have the words "Don't Bug Us" underneath.  I wanted a different sentiment so I just covered up the words with a paper strip and stamped my sentiment.  I used some Crystal Effects to make their little shells shine....and yes,  they are on CS straight.  They're marching uphill.

Now for a personal note....yesterday was my 60th birthday.  Oh my, I was so not prepared for what a special day it turned out to be.   My dear friend, Patty, arranged a surprise birthday luncheon at a lovely restaurant by the water complete with a homemade from scratch birthday cake and balloons!  There were so many dear and sweet friends there...what a lovely gift of their time!   I was so overwhelmed by their generousity that I spent the rest of the day in tears every time I thought of how absolutely blessed I am...not only with dear friends here but also in our old "hometown" of Louisville, with our family, friends I've met through stamping online, and  especially, my dear sweet DH who, once again, made me a card..sweet and simple:
                                        
Update on the cabinet from Ikea...they are going to replace the parts that aren't finished properly and because we have to travel so far, they've agreed to reimburse our gas and tolls.  The best part is I don't have to rebuild the drawers...yea!!
