Happy Stinking Birthday!

Hello!  Hello!  Did you think I was lost?  Who was wondering (besides Cathy who left me a comment) where this week's cards were?  I guess I was having one of those non creative weeks.  But not totally, after all, I did teach a card class on Tuesday and that was creative!  On Wednesday, my hubby & I drove up to Arlington and went to a Rangers game.  On Thursday, I tried to make a card but nothing would work like I wanted it to.  But last night, I did it!  I made a card that is just as cute as it can be!  But, the problem is when to post it.  Since, today's post is supposed to be a Saturday share day and not just some regular card post day.  Well, I am doing both!  There will be a post right after this one for the Saturday share, so look for it!  Back to my cute card for today, I recently saw on one of the blogs I frequent, the most adorable card.  And I thought, I must make one like that.  So, today is a total "case" from this card here.  Let me show you mine ... enjoy!

I know it is very much like Jackie's that I cased.  But, why mess with a good thing?  What's the saying ... if it aint broke, don't fix it!  Jackie does not know me, but I feel like I know her thru her blog ... so thanks Jackie for one adorable creation! 


Paper - Echo Park Little Girl line Jody's Stripe (this 12 x 12 had one side that was in quadrants of different patterns and I used 3 of the 4), Cardstock Pink, White
Stamps - The Cat's Pajamas Happy Camper set, Happy and Birthday was from Woodware sentiment set
Ink - Versafine Black, Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol
Tools - Classic Circles, Lacey Circles Nestibilities, Cloud Dies from Papertrey Inc, Grass die from The Cat's Pajamas
Other - Button, Linen Thread from The Cat's Pajamas, Rhinestones

Those of you who follow my blog might have noticed that I skipped a Texas Tues-step last week.  I just wasn't feeling it.  But, somehow Mark with Deadbeat Designs must have sensed that from me and decided I needed a few new Texas stamps to get me excited about Texas Tues-Steps again ... On Thursday, a box came for me in the mail ...

Oh my gosh ... his new stamps!  Woo Hoo!  I am one lucky girl!  Texas Tues-Steppin' here I come! 
Don't forget to look for my second post today, the Saturday share. 

Enjoy the holiday weekend!
Happy Stamping!

At last! New cards! I knew you wouldn't let me down. I'm glad you were just busy and not in an unproductive phase. Keep 'em coming!

Oh! And I'm EXTREMELY jealous that you got all those cool Deadbeat Design stamps. If anyone deserves to get free stamps for NOT stamping, you KNOW it should be me! Ha! That was very nice of Mark to send those to you to get you back on the Tues-Step track.
