A FEW PROJECTS TO SHARE AND A BIG THANK YOU....

I would first like to thank all of you that help me celebrate my 40th birthday this past Thursday....I received so many wonderful birthday wishes, it was just amazing....It really is a blessing to have so many family and friends and I love all of you dearly....It is funny that I was at first expecting something either crazy or really wild to happen to me or a sad type of mood that I was suppose to start feeling on my birthday because a few people that I spoke to about turning 40 kind of made it seem that way..so I thought to myself that whole day..hum...I don't feel any different......I actually feel really great...I have a wonderful husband that spent almost 2 hours with me that day at one of my favorite scrapbooking stores.....I went on a little shopping spree, my daughter wrote me this wonderful, heart dropping poem, my youngest son wrote on a little white index card...HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY MOMMY, I LOVE YOU....all with perfectly spelled letters and in the best handwriting around, I had been receiving SEVERAL cards in the mail all week from so many of my blog friends, I mean the day was just full of blessings....My heart was totally overwhelmed with the birthday wishes from the cricut board, it put tears in my eyes......Someone left me a message the other day on a project that I had posted and she had mentioned that I had it all, well I don't believe I have it all, but I will say that I am truly grateful for everything that the Good Lord has blessed me with: family, friends, good health and the most awesome bbtb team around...love you girls.....

Okay on to the projects.......The first project: CAKE SHAPED CARD...I used the cake from the Wedding solutions cartridge...(love this cake)....I used some yummy American crafts paper and lots of martha stewart glitter on the scallop edges of the cake...the bottom stand has glaze on it....The CELEBRATE tag is a doodlebat from scrapnfonts.com from their set called DB boho Frames A-M...this set is so fun...



The next project is the same CELEBRATE doodlebat...I just made it larger...Just a fun birthday card with lots of rhinestones...the little present in the top left hand corner is a doodlebat from scrapnfonts...from a set called DB Birthday Cheer....You might not be able to see in the picture, but I free sewed a heart by the flower with 24 on it.... And for the last project, I recently decided that I have so many stampin up stamps and the way I have them organized is NOT WORKING, I hate how the containers have lips on them...so to speak...they just don't stack up good for me........so.........I am taking all of the stamps out of the clear containers and putting them in boxes with labels on them etc.....anyhoo, the boxes are so darn cute though for sending little gifts......back in the day I use to send my hubby a little card here and there and I thought I wanted to somewhat get back to basics with my hubby in surprising him with little cards and other small tokens of how I love him and appreciate all that he does for me and his children...so my first project with one of these little clear boxes, I found these yummy carmel suckers from the store and I filled the container with them and then I decorated the container....wow these things are so easy to decorate with...as far as the back were the stampin up wording is, I just put a piece of pattern paper there to cover that up....I then made a card to go with the gift and since I didn't have anymore boxes for mailing.............heck I ended up making a cardboard box to ship the stuff to his job...(my sister gave me loads of 12 by 12 cardboard...worked like a champ)...anyways, he loved the card and candy...the CONFIDENTIAL tag on the candy box is from anther scrapnfonts.com set called DB boho frames 2....I wrote a message in the inside that is REALLY CONFIDENTIAL...MORE LIKE X-RATED... Oh yeah one more thing the word SUCKER on the card is a new font that hasn't been released yet from scrapnfonts.com...I used my pazzles to cut it out...
