Happy Thursday!!

Hi everybody!! Hope that you are all doing well!! Can you believe how fast this month has flown by? I'm so excited that it's May tomorrow...and why is that...cause it's MY BIRTHDAY tomorrow!! I've already received an early birthday present (a BIG SHOT starter kit from SU!...THANKS MOM!!) but I haven't had the chance to use it yet. My plans for tomorrow are going to work (for a half day) and out for dinner later that night with my mom, step-dad, and my bf!! Wanna know something sucky...I've come down with a cold/sore throat this week and it's all because of my birthday (almost every year I come down with some sort of cold or sore throat right before my birthday)...kinda weird, eh?

Anyhow, I've got some cards to share...they are pretty simple but I think that they are cute!! Oh, and I got the ribbon idea from a class that I attended on Friday night...Sherri, the instructor, showed us this really cute way to "dress up" ribbon and I had to use it on my cards.

Basically, all I did was stamp up the images with Versafine ink in onyx black and embossed them with sparkle detail powder. I coloured them in with tombow markers and used my nestabilites (plain and scalloped squares) around the images. All of my cardstock is from SU! and I went with Whisper White, Kraft, Certainly Celery, and Barely Banana. The ribbon is from SU! (Barely Banana and Certainly Celery) and I added a rhinestone brad (SU!) and Prima flower to finish off the cards. I'm really happy with how the cards turned out (hope my recipents enjoy them).

Thanks for stopping by to check out my newest cards. Hope you enjoy the rest of your Thursday!!

Happy Birthday Sarah!!!! Enjoy it! My birthday is tomorrow,(Saturday), Unfortunately I'll be laid up on the couch. I had foot surgery yesterday, so no dancing for me this year. Hubby's preparing a wonderful meal and has been taking fabulous care of me.
