Be My Love

January 14, 2012

Happy Saturday, everyone!!  I hope that your day has been a great one!  Today is my 32nd birthday, and we celebrated last night with a bunch of friends!  We BBQ'd, ate cupcakes, drank a little wine, and played "The Game of Things".  It was a blast!!  Today Josh and I have been super lazy, just enjoying some movies and hanging out together.  I did have some 50% off coupons for Michael's, and a little bit of birthday we went and picked up a couple of Spellbinders sets that I that was nice!!  {Thanks Grandma Penny...those are what you got me with the money you sent!  Tee hee!}

I was a card winner at CardPatterns awhile back, which made me the guest designer for CardPatterns Sketch #148 this week.  I decided it was the perfect sketch to use with this month's Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Kit and the Inspiration Sheet!  This is also release week at the Key Ingredients Blog, so you should check out what all the talented designers have come up with so far this month!!  I will be the finisher for release week tomorrow, so be sure to check back then and see what else I have done with the kit!  Here is my card for today!
