Someone's birthday & turning 40...

Thank God it's not me... Oh wait. I'm already FFFFFFFF.... I'm FFFFFFFF... Oh alright, I'm already Forty -- but only by five and a half weeks!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JENNIFER! (I'm glad we were able to get together for dinner the other night.) Cheers!

I recently bought this stamp and love it. Quickly colored in with direct to ink pads and my water filled pen.

Inside stamped with a fairly new set of numbers and the "cherish every day" stamp is one for a huge set of clear stamps. I've had them a year maybe and first time using (they were a gift) and thought this was the perfect little touch.

5/23 Edit to add: I can now say it was a fun evening, as we went to Jennifer's SURPRISE birthday party hosted by her hubby. It was a great time and we were glad to be a part of it. Happy Birthday, J !

Thump, thump, thump...

I got some stamping done today! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...

Made a card for Karen in the UK... "Thank you berry much" is stamped on the inside. I put on some Crystal Lacquer onto the jar and cut out a second jam label and attached it with mini pop dots.

Alcohol inks! (and a new saying stamp I bought while in the UK -- it's from Tim Holtz's line.)

Another new stamp (the princess) and had the saying stamp. But since the saying is really large, I stamped it on shrink plastic and shrunk it down to about 1" x 3/4".
I also used Stickles on her crown, wings and wand. The close up is blurry but you can really make out the sparkle. :)
