Happy Birthday, Hubby!

Today is my my dear hubby special day. He's truly one of the most thoughtful, loving guy, and I just want to let him know how thankful I am to have him as my partner in life!  Happy birthday, honey & please figure out where you want to go for dinner! LOL, every year he makes it so difficult to celebrate his birthday. He always like to keep it low key & I always want to make it special. He's like, why don't we just go out on t he weekend? I am like duh.... your birthday is today! :)

Other happy news.... Yesterday, I got tagged on facebook here, for winning a goodie box from Susan Opel from Paper & Crafts magazine. Yay!! Then this morning, lovely Deirdre left a comment & telling me I won another giveaway from the fabulous Cath at Moxie Fab! I rush to check out the announcement here & sure enough there's my  name. What a great blessing.

And the blessing will be shared. I am not keeping everything, I'll be adding some of the stuff to the prizes for Caring Hearts Card Drive. Yay... more stuff for you to win. :) I also have another donor adding prizes, this time it's Hero Arts! Double yay! Will be adding their prizes as soon as I receive their prize pic.

Anyway, have you start making your Christmas cards, yet? I am slowly working on them. The latest release from Digital Doodles "Night Before Christmas" sure helps me get in the mood to work on Christmas cards.

Edited to add "link" to the set.

Incy Wincy Designs - sparkly glitter (glitter, stickles, rhinestones, etc)
Gingerloft - glitter or bling
Sew Many Cards - DIGI STAMP and anything goes
Charisma Cardz - christmas crafting

Did you see the two li'l mouse? I think they're such a cutie! Here's an up-close view of them. I want to show how their tails are not glue & actually curled out for extra fun dimension.

The fireplace is courtesy of Silhouette. I just drew some lines to create the brick look & use my Prismacolor pencil to create the shadow lines. Loads of stickles on the fire. Love how glittery & shiny it looks. I did the same thing on the lights. 

What do you think? Also, check out Kathy's Digital Doodles blog to see all the fabulous projects the DT gals created. From the sneak peek I've been seeing, there are lots of eye candy! Thank you for all your sweet thoughtful comments that you left yesterday about Coco. I say it again and again, the card making industry is filled with many amazing, thoughtful people and I am so glad to be part of this community.

Have a blessed week everyone & thank you all for stopping by here. Cheers...

Congrats on your recent wins. You needed some good news after the last couple of days. I'm so very happy for you.
Love the fireplace scene you created for your Digital Doodles card. So very clever, and such beautiful use of the images. I just love that mouse. Need to do something with him next time.
