Happy Birthday to Me!

I needed to make a sympathy card, which I've never made before and of course I got stumped. I decided to go with the simple and I'm pretty pleased with the results. Tell me what you think. While I was at it, I used my new Bird Call embossing folder from Provo Craft. I really liked how it turned out for this project. The stamp is from an old set I had lying around; the ribbon is from Heidi Grace and the brad I don't remember. I just hope this card isn't too simple.

On a happier note, today is my birthday and I'm excited because we are going out for dinner!!! No cooking for me tonight! Now, where to go is the question. Addison is excited, as she is anytime its a birthday and wanted to know if I would like a "Big Baby" for my present. Can you guess what she wants for Christmas? I only hear, "I want a big baby for Christmas" about every other day or so. LOL. Well, since both kids are down napping I'd better get off of here and enjoy some crafting time!!!

The brown/cream card I made this afternoon for the House Mouse Monday Challenge. Phew..that was a tough one, but I really liked it. The image is obviously from House Mouse; I stickled the bubbles and everything else was part of their requirement.
