Happy birthday to ME!

Yuppers...today is my birthday, not a big milestone b'day or anything but once I hit 50 a couple years ago every one of them becomes a milestone from now on. Do I feel 52? Heck NO! Well maybe once in a while when little aches and pains catch up with me but other than that I'm pretty content. And I'll be REALLY content when I enjoy the reflexology gift certificates hubby gave me! Have you ever had that done? OMG...you really should because it is one of my most fav things EVAH and I consider it totally decadent, which makes it a perfect gift.

While most of this week has been spent prettying up the yard I did manage to squeeze in a card. This is from Stamping Bella's May release called LULU's morning fix. I stamped her on Bella's BESTEST paper and coloured her with copic markers.


Her dress ended up being a deeper purple than I originall intended so trashed the original paper I had in mind and paired her up with Basic Grey's Wisteria. No biggie...I've always liked that paper which is odd because I'm not a fan of purple. I didn't bother taking note of the copics I used because I ended up using lots of pencils on it in the end.

Before I go, don't forget about our PAPER PIECING challenge this Friday and I'll leave you with just one of the many things I am enjoying out in my yard on this beautiful warm and sunny day. Ahhhhhhh summertime!
