Happy 40th Birthday!

Due to it being a busy week and trying to find a good 40th birthday present, taking my kids with our family friends to Calaway park, the beach with more friends it hasn't been possible to comment on everyones entries for Sweet Stampin but sometime will have to be made to continue too look and comment on all of your gorgeous work. As said before you are all very talented. I want to give a huge shout out to all of the girls at Sweet Stampin for making me feel to welcome as a Guest Desinger and for the wonderful opportunity. I have totally love every mintue of it.

What does your day hold? Today, I am off to celebrate the marriage of one of my cousin's. It will be like a family reunion so we are very excited to see everyone.

Our sponsor this month is Heather sure to stop bye her store to see her very cute designs.

So this is the last challenge for the month of August can you believe it? What is it you say? DISTRESSING ON YOUR CARD, AND IT HAS TO BE A BIRTHDAY CARD! Where did our time go...? Time just flew by as GDT and let me tell you it was a blast. This challenge was perfect for me because my DH turned 40 this week and boy did I need a good birthday card and a great techinque. Now my DH is not one who likes a bunch of stuff, he is a very plain person, way less is more for him but not always me (LOL, it can be hard). The stamp I chose is one of my friend Lori's and it was made by Totally Stampalicious. Their stamps are so unique and awesome. They sure make you laugh. What was my distressing? It was tearing, inking, using a sanding block on the chocolate chip paper and on the pattern paper (on the inside and out).

Don't you just love him? Does he make you smile?

Thanks so much for coming to see me for the last month. I have enjoyed everyones comments and the visits. The best part is becoming a follower of several peoples blogs. Please keep coming to visit me and I will continue to pop over to your blogs as well. Wishing you the best weekend, hope it holds tons of smiles for you.
