Happy Birthday, Marelle!

Again (and I'm starting to sound like a broken record here), I'm sorry for the lack of posts. It seems that I'm online every spare moment looking at houses in Denver. It started out being fun... but anymore, it's getting very tiring! Michael made a trip out there last week for an initial look-around, and we'll be going back later this week. Here's hoping we can find a good compromise between price, location, lot, and layout!

My dear friend, Marelle, had a birthday last week and although I haven't done a lick of stamping lately, I did manage to get this one made and sent off to Australia in time for her birthday! Priorities, you know!

It's a simple card, really, considering the Big Shot once again created my background for me. Here's a closer look:

Marelle, I hope you had a super, terrific, fabulous birthday!!

Such a sweet little card! Good luck house hunting - it's a tough job in itself.

I did, thankyou Michele! And I LOVE my card (even if you've made me envious of all the things we don't have!)

This card is so sweet!

I'm with you on the " started out being fun..." Military housing is not usually laid out for a large family, so now we have to make the decision of where to compromise - number of rooms or distance to school/work/activities!

I'm really hoping to find a house with an extra room for stamping! :)
