Shhhhh.....don't tell

that I've been making cards instead of packing!!!!! I think the key is to shut down the computer but we all know that is not going to happen. It has been a very busy week around here though. I celebrated my birthday on Friday, took the day off and spent it at the lake. It was a great way to celebrate.
Hmm..our youngest daughter wrote this on the outside of the envelope for my BD card and our friends thought it would be cute on my cake. Yum..it was good regardless. Well, 20 years ago we were celebrating the birth of our second child. Happy Birthday Princess and know how much you are loved!!!
Momma duck seens to have lost some of her babies. There are only six left!! Mother Nature can be cruel sometimes.

We also got out to see the baby gulls. They look so much like the granite rocks that you can easily miss them. We didn't stay on the island long as the mommas were flying overhead and they were not impressed with us. I am glad I was wearing a hat just in case!!!


I did get a couple of cards made also. They are sketches from Di Hickman

With this one I used BG oh Baby Girl pp,HS writer's Block circle,ribbon from stash, Cuttlebug design, jelly roll pen and chalk ink

and also from Beate
With this one I used WR Memory Keepers Silver Lining Brillance (which doen't show it's true glory in this scan), HA sentiment, 7 Gypsies label it stamp and my Marvy Scallop circle punch. I have decided I am not very good at following the rules as you can see by my cards, but they certainly motivate me to play and I guess that's what it's all about.

The colors on the 2nd card is so beautiful. I love seeing your bird pictures, even the baby seagulls. In Boston, they nest on the top of the tall buildings, I love seeing the babies at this time each year.

Congratulations on the sale of your house and also, happy birthday! I remember when we moved from Hawaii to California and my stamps were in storage for a few months! Whaaa! When we arrived in California, it remained in the garage for 6 months until we bought our new home. . .it was tough! Hope it won't take you that long to unpack your craft items but just in case, pack it last and create until you have to pack it!!

I love the cards you've created. . .very colorful and great layouts!!

If you could give more detailed information on some, I think it is even more perfect, and I need to obtain more information!
