Happy Birthday

Today's card is going out to Cheryl, one of our Papertrey Princesses. Happy Birthday girly! I hope you get lots of free time to spend how you like today. I might even eat a piece of cake in your honor! *grin*

This card is actually a CASE of myself. I posted this card back in October of 2007 and it came to mind when I choosing colors for Cheryl's card last night. Isn't it fun to look back sometimes? Just to see how far we've come, I mean. *smile*

This evening my mom and I are going to see Billy Joel and Elton John in concert together. FINALLY! I bought us $200 seats in the beginning of December 2009 as an early Christmas present, but then Elton got the flu, so the concert was rescheduled for February. In February Billy got the flu, so it was rescheduled for today. This morning my mom woke up with the worst cold ever! I feel jinxed. But we're still going. Wouldn't miss it for the world!

Stamps used: Beautiful Blooms (flowers), Blooming Button Bits (stems), Polka Dot Basics II (background), Everyday Button Bits (sentiment)

Thanks for stopping by today!

This card made me so happy! One reason is because it is absolutely beautiful - the colors, the details, the flowers! I love it all! The second reason is because I just bought that Nestie and I'm excited to go home and try something like yours! So beautiful! Have fun tonight!
