New stamp & a birthday wish

Wow... this week been so awesome. Monday, on top of winning the Paper Crafts giveaway (thanks Harriet for letting me know), I found out that my card here won the 2 Cute Rubber Stamp challenge. I think I was squealing when I called my husband to let him know.

He was laughing, saying that I sound like my 12 year old niece when I am excited. LOL. Can't help it. 2 winnings in 1 day. Of course, I was jumping up and down. Wonder if my luck would work with the lottery ticket, too? Can you imagine how many stamps I can buy?? LOL.

I love 2 Cute Rubber Stamp (and no, I don't get paid to say this, I just honestly love their stuff). Heidi's design is so refreshing and adorable. I chose 2 digi stamps from her store and on top of doing the PTI blog hop last night, I just had to play with the new stamp. They're too irresistable (oohh, that sounds like Beyonce song, hehe..). Here's the card:

Isn't that image adorable? For this card I used the sketch from Whimsy Haven challenge, which I sadly missed the dateline. Sometime I just forgot date. But, I love the sketch, so I used it anyway. Below is the close-up pic. Entering this card for Crafty Creations Challenge 69 and Little Red Wagon # 30 as well.This stamp is just so darn cute, it makes me giddy. Yes, I am like a little kid when it comes to cute stuff. LOL.

Today is my little brother, Jerry, who I call Boy or Boim, birthday. He's a year younger than me and actually taller than me, but still I refer to him as my li'l bro! :) He was actually in Boston (all the way from Indonesia) for photo shoot for Allure magazine for 3 days and have to spend his birthday up in the air as he's on his way back to Jakarta already.

I am sorry that I can't see him. So close, yet so far away. He's my talented photographer, graphic designer brother. My partner in crime back when we were kids. The one who believe I am creative enough that I should pursue a degree in design. The one person I can laugh with without saying a word. We can look at each other and just start laughing. I love him to pieces and so very proud of all of his achievement.

He took pics of everything. But, I especially love his underwater pictures that he collected through his various diving expedition. You can check them out here. I think y ou all will agree that they are AMAZING. So, Boy, happy birthday, I love you, and may your life continue to be blessed in every single way. Big hugs to you. Hope to see you soon. Miss all my family like crazy. Hmm.. get teary eye just thinking of you all. Hugs, Ling.
