Happy Birthday

It's amazing the difference a day makes. Today and yesterday, it is windy and cold while Friday we had Spring like weather. When I came home from work, I took the dog for a walk on the boardwalk it was in the upper 60's. Now, I haven't done that in ages and it felt good to be walking the "boards" again. It was amazing how many people were also enjoying the weather. The cyclists were out as were the many handball players, skate boarders and of course how could I forget the surfers. It was so beautiful out, I was tempted to take off my shoes and actually walk along the shore line as many were all ready doing. Maybe next time.

I followed the sketch at Wild Orchid Crafts I love this sketch by Bev, and know I'll use it again and again.

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

I am also keeping true to tackling my paper stash,along with trying to use my much neglected corner punches. I've had this punch for ages, just haven't used it, so I dusted it off and gave it a go.

As always, thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog, would love hearing from you, your comments always bring a smile to my face

Hi Debbie!! Yay! I'm so happy - since I've cut most of my DT commitments, i have a little extra computer time and can "try" to catchup with my favorite blogs and friends! So, I definitely was excited to FINALLY pay a visit to your wonderful blog!! And, I am not disappointed. What a gorgeous card and just ther perfect amount of sparkle! YOur Copic coloring really ROCKS too. Great job using papers and puches long forgotten ... I don't even want to think about packing up my crafting stuff. I know I'll go crazy when I find all the things I never had the chance to use. Ok, before I write book here ... adorable card Debbie. And, my, aren't these LOTV stamps the cutest?! I'm definitely hooked since our last CC challenge. Stop the madness!!! LOL big hugz, Mary

Deb said...
