Bella sketch color challenge #64
I used a layout I saw in papercrafts.
On the last card I intended to emboss also, but got a head of myself. So it's not embossed.

I wanted to make use of my scraps. The coco saying is bella, and the love is from CTMH. I don't even know where the paper came from. It's been in a stack of unused b&t paper.

Happy Birthday!!!

Not to be to cheesy but, Happy Birthday to ME!! I'm 30!

I had a wonderful birthday. My hubby took the day off work so he could wait on me hand and foot all day long. He made me a very yummy breakfast. Then attempted to take me shopping for my gift. A new set of Prisma's. I had a 50% off coupon to Jo-Anne's. Of course they were out. Then we went over to Macy's so I could buy my face wash. Yep, they were CLOSED for an inventory day. LOL! Only me. I just laughed it off, things like that ALWAYS happen to me/us. My hubby felt so bad.
My mom cooked my birthday dinner. Which she does for everyone in our family for birthdays. I love it. We pick whatever we want. Mine is always the same. Homemade mac and cheese, with meatloaf. Yummy. As it happens my oldest son's favorite meal is the same thing:) I do the tradition for my family now.


I could not decide how I like the embossed hearts better, in white or pink. So I did a card in both. I really love this card size, and style of card.
