It's my Birthday today!


This is a dual Birthday / Father's Day card for my Father-in-Law. His birthday and Father's are only two days apart, so it makes sense to make one card for both occasions. I wanted to go with the same general theme as the Father's Day card that I made for my Dad yesterday. But, I didn't have any more chipboard embellishments so I opted to use the chipboard 'D' as a stencil and cut it out. Then, I added some stamped pocket watches to the background. I'm not really happy with my placement of the pocket watches, but I think it'll do...

Today is my 35th birthday! This morning my girls presented me with the cutest cards. :) I'll be opening up my presents tonight and they know I'm a peeker so they informed me not to peek around the house for presents today while they're at school! lol :) My parents are also coming for a visit in a few hours to celebrate. I'm really looking forward to them coming and my mum is bringing lasagna and salad and Turtle cheesecake - Yummy! :) Well, I could continue being crafty, but I have to go finish tidying my house, my parents are arriving soon and time is gonna go by quickly.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

No. We have enough stacks, cabinets, shelves and other storage areas. I think it would be cool if she opened her own store. :) Enough here too.
