Happy Birthday!

So I turn 33 today! But, hey, 33 is lucky, right? 3+3=6 which is a lucky number of the universe, so I'm good. Plus, it's March 15, and 1=5+ 6 too! *smile*
I've had a ton of fun, being home alone, crafting in my studio, listening to a book on my ipod, drinking copious amounts of tea, and eating toast with marmalade. (I adore marmalade and bought myself a $4 jar of key lime marmalade just for a birthday treat! Maybe I was Paddington Bear in another life? lol)

I wanted to post this card that I whipped up this morning, before I head back into the cozy-ness that is my art room. I wasn't sure about the colors, but finally decided that the Enchanted Evening flower looked alright with the Pure Poppy and New Leaf. I know my coloring skills are a bit blah, to say the least, but I figure I can't get better if I don't practice, right? And you, my blog readers are extremely forgiving, so I don't feel shy about practicing around you!

This evening my husband was going to take me out for Indian (my fave cuisine), but it's such a long drive that I think I'll suggest someplace a bit closer. Driving an hour just for supper seems crazy on a school/work night!
Thanks for stopping by today and sharing my Birthday with me!

This card is gorgeous - I love the fresh colour combo and your colouring is amazing!
I too love tea and marmalade (though not in the same cup LOL!), we currently have a chocolate marmalade open - totally scrummy but naughty on your morning toast ;D
