So it was my bday yesterday....

I turned the big THREE-OH! I had a nice day. Still had to work b/c I never thought of taking my bday off even though my hubby takes his off every year. My girls woke me up screaming happy bday right away and then my parents gave me their gift which was a CD (Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - Rasing Sand...SOOO Good!) and$30. So I had gotten a 40% off coupon to my LSS the night before and decided instead of saving that money I would spend it, LOL, and I got a Scor-pal finally! I also got some bazzill paper other small things I needed for a project I'm working on for a friend. I did great b/c I also got 15% off for coming in on my bday and I had a coupon for the free cardstock as well - Spent $29.50! My hubby gave me money to put toward saving for my laptop so I'm stoked about that too.

On CafeMom, I'm in a group called Addicted 2 Bellas and we're having a month long challenge for our hubby's to make us a card using a bella stamp. My hubby took this challenge and made me my bday card this year:
Isn't it great? He actually paper pieced her dress and wings, used my copics and glitter pens and my nesties on this! I was not at home when he started the card and I called him and he was too cute b/c he was so frustrated -- I'm very proud of him b/c I never thought he'd go to such details on it. He had our girls sign the inside and needless to say this card will be kept forever when normally I toss store bought cards out before the week is done.
I also snuck some pics of him finishing and showing his hard work when I got home:
Isn't he cute? So I had a great 30th bday! I have some other projects I need to share but will do so later on.

Sounds like you had a marvellous day Carisa! I am so impressed that your husband actually MADE you a card. No way...not even when hell freezes over ...will you find my hubby anywhere near my art table...well...in search of the nail scissors perhaps....but, never, ever to make anything!
