Congratulations, You Did It!

Hi All,

I hope you're having a great week so far! Mine has been pretty good. My birthday was Monday ( was the 19th Anniversary of 21st birthday ;), so I've been doing a bit of celebrating every day. That's the best way to do it, right? The Free birthday meals have been rolling in: The Keg, Grimaldi's, Benihana's and even IHOP. And, yes, I will be using each one. I LOVE eating out!

But, on to bigger and better things. My last workshop focused on items from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. There are so many good things in there. My card was inspired by this cutie from Meg Loven. I love the simple design and tho
se fabulous color choices (yes she chose Steeler colors ;) But, I switched it up a and made it a bit more girly.

I have this super cute pom-pom ribbon that I never get to use. I knew I wanted to incorporate it. And what goes better with black than pink??? Not too much. Getting this ribbon to lay flat was tricky. I actually ended up trimming off the pom-poms on the portion that went behind the mat. Solved the problem.

This stamp set is called Sprinkled Expressions. You can get it Free with a $50 order. Don't miss out if you 'Must' have it for your collection. The images in the set are really cute. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hey!! I'm a March baby too! Happy Birthday!! Unfortunately my "anniversary" number is bigger than the "21st birthday" so it doesn't seem so cute to say it that way - just seems old!
