Thursday, May 5, 2011
Hey, everyone!  I want to thank you all for the sweet birthday wishes for me - and for the anniversary wishes for Wendy and her hubby.  It was a great day!  The project we're sharing with you today was made by Becca, and she had this to say about it:

"I made this birthday card for Monique.  I've always wanted to do something with this cart.  All of those birds are just so cute!  I really enjoyed using the "Glossy Accents" to make the shiny dots on the background and on the bird's eye.  What a neat product!  I can't wait to use it more.  Hope yall are havin' a great day so far."

Don't forget to leave a comment for Becca to be entered for this week's blog candy - a custom layout that I will design just for you in your choice of theme!


 
Cartridge:  Three Birds on Parade.  Paper:  Fancy Pants, Bo Bunny Cardstock, DCWV Cardstock. 


Need: Three Birds on Parade Cartridge, Pop Dots, General Adhesives, White Gel Pen, Glossy Accents - (clear bubble dots on back ground and on the bird's eye), Diamond Stickles, Buttercup Liquid Pearls - (cupcake), Rhinestones, Chalk Ink - Jumbo Java (brown), Malted Mauve, Aegean Blue. 
Cuts:  Cupcake Bird - 4 1/2", Cupcake Bird Shadow - 4 1/2", All Colored Layers - 4 1/2", Phrase "You Take the Cake" - 1 1/2", Phrase Shadow - 1 1/2".
Other Measurements:  Card - 5 1/2" x 4 1/2", Polka Dot Mat - 5 1/2" x 4 1/2".

It's such a beautiful AND cute card, Becca!  Thanks for making it for me!!!

**************************
 In other news, my birthday was soooo superly duperly awesome!  I got to sleep in til 10am (heaven!!), then out to lunch with mom, Lucy and Becca at Mimi's.  We came home and got ready for a party with 55 people.  Steph met us here to help get everything organized.  It was our Team Monique dinner since the Race for the Cure is only a few days away, but it kinda turned into a birthday party.  What a way to celebrate!  

It was SOOOOOOO much stinkin' fun to have everyone here, and they even surprised me with a few gifts.  My sweet husband got me an iphone, for crying out loud!!!!  Please help welcome me into this century.  Wendy and Stephanie went in on a gift certificate toward my pink ribbon butterfly tattoo, Lisa Kirk got me a beautiful salad bowl, Brenda got me a Vera Bradley gift cert, and Paul & Becca got me an Old Navy gift card.  Plus - get this - remember the Tim Holtz item we had at the silent auction?  Tim made it himself, signed it and donated it.  It went for a hefty sum, but it was all just a sneaky plot by a bunch of my scrappin' friends to give it to ME for my birthday!!!!!  Can you even believe that?????  Oh my goodness, I am not kidding you - I have the best friends and family that a person could ever ever have!  This has been the BEST birthday of my life!!!!!  I'm gonna share a few pics of the party just because it was such a blast...
