Happy Birthday to Me!


Yes...today is my Birthday! When I went to my Doctor's appointment yesterday, they needed to know my age for a form I was filling out. I asked her if I should put down yesterday's age or the age I would be today. I was so hoping I could leave it at the age I was yesterday, but she said no! LOL! I don't have any "baby" pictures to show you today, since they put my ultrasound on a DVD that I take each time I go. It was so fun to have a few minutes of "baby" to watch and show the family yesterday. What a sweetie is growing! I love seeing the little arms and little legs kicking. It was quite a wiggly little thing and it was impossible to detect the gender. I will go back on the 28th and they will be able to see then, I hope.

My SFYTT card is not for me, obviously, but for my darling nephew who just turned 8. We will be celebrating his birthday today and so I needed to make a card. I loved this week's sketch: simple and straightforward. I wish that my execution could have been "simple and straightforward". I was having fits with this card and I was tempted to not even post today, but I kept going.


I don't have any "current" SU! stuff that works for a boy, so I had to use retired paper. It is some of my favorite, anyway. The funny part is that we are Broncos fans here and my Nephew's family are all Cowboys fans. Do you think they might not like the Orange and Blue color combo? LOL!

Congratulations and happy birthday! I jsut found your blog today and I feel like it's MY birthday! There are so many gorgeous projects here. I came over via a link to the accordion flowers. They're just what I was looking for. I'd love to link to that project if you didn't mind.
