Happy Birthday to Me :)

Hello!
The scale was good to me this morning - down 2.4, for a total of 58.9! Best ever birthday gift!

It's been another busy week here.  Our DD and dear SIL arrived Sunday night, and will be here until early next week.  It's been wonderful having them (and our sweet granddaughter doggie, Rosie) here, but so bittersweet.  They will leave next week to do some traveling, goodbyes with Nick's parents, and take the honeymoon that never took place a year ago due to Nick's deployment.  When they come back through here to pick up Rosie, they will be heading to Germany for the next three years!  Wonderful opportunity for them, and we have a great place to vacation to :)  But we will miss them so much...

Here is another quick post to share.  Again, I used the same stamps, same papers, different colors, to get out a couple of notes to our church choir director and her choir, and a friend who sang a solo in Sunday's Easter Cantata. Time in my girl cave has been minimal, so these 'same' type cards are the easiest right now.



All cards are created with Biblical Impressions Stamps, A Muse CS, Hammermill 100# CS, ribbon from my stash, and Copic Markers


I apologize for my lack of visiting your blogs, but right now, I'm spending every spare moment with DD and her DH.  I'll be stalking you again next week!

Hugs,
Patti J.

Awww, enjoy your time with DD - it will be hard to say goodbye, but what an adventure for her! (My friend was stationed in Germany a few years back and LOVED it, so hopefully she will too) Beautiful cards by the way! xx

Patti, well good for you and congrats! I really need to shed some pounds but...

And, a very happy birthday wish to you along with some hugs, kisses and lots of love. Enjoy your birthday and your family. My nephew was stationed in Germany when he first went into the service and I thought he'd hate it there... he LOVED it! Brought my hubby and me back a "boot" even though I don't drink beer...lol! Hubby uses his, mine is a souvenir.

Love your cards my friend, I always do; you make beautiful cards!

Hugs!

I love your cards. Where do you find the Hammermill 100# CS? I can't find it in any of my local Office Supply stores. I have heard great things about it and want to try it.
