Happy Birthdays!

Anyone have any suggestions on how to get everything done that us women place upon ourselves to do? Okay, okay, I know I'm just feeling overwhelmed in my new venture and I'm probably trying to hard... And I'm the worst at forgiving myself for not getting everything done that I hoped to get done... I'm unrealistic, I know.... I have two birthdays on the 22nd, my third child's birthday is Feb. 1st, college deadlines, a dirty house and this really cute card to get done.... Well, at least I got one thing accomplished today! I'm giving it to my oldest daughter for her birthday.

Yes, you read that right. I had two children on the same day, two years apart. And what is even more amazing is my nephew was born on the same day the year between. My mother's first three grandchildren are all born on January 22nd. Happy Birthday Michael, Jessica and Kiff!

The stamps I used on this card were B Line Designs Flexibone for the corset. For the inside sentiment I used B Line Designs "Corset" Birthday stamp with my gold Martha Stewart stamp pad.

I colored the image with my Copic markers using my RV colors. I used the ZIG Painty pen for the gold. The DP is My Minds Eye, Laundry Line. Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, ribbon from Hobby Lobby, brads and that's my card... I hope you like it and I'd love to hear your thoughts so leave me a comment. "I'm just sayin'..."


  1. So beautiful ~ I love it! You are going to win me over to the Copic markers yet. Best of birthdays wishes to your two beautiful babies (as moms, they will always be our babies {wink}).

  2. Adorable! I've never seen that stamp before--it's a hoot!
