Hi everyone, how are you? I just want to thank all of you for your kind birthday wishes! I received emails and PM's on SCS. It was really great! I wanted to have a card to post for you today, but, I didn't get a chance. I will have one for you tomorrow. I'll have to, because I got so many cool, new things! I received money for my birthday and boy was it fun to spend on me, for a change! LOL! I think I hit every craft store nearby and my mom was nice enough to babysit. I am so excited to put all those things to use, you can't even imagine! It's always the little things that make me so happy. I got the coolest brads and a clear Inkadinkadoo cat stamp set! I got 2 different huge punches at ACM; they were originally 20$ a piece and I got them for 5$ a piece!! Icouldn't believe it!! Go check it out! I got those metal plates to put on your cards? I have always wanted to try them. Oh, let's not forget the BIG bottle of assorted Prima flowers! Last but not least, my loving husband let me order some Prisma markers; my very first ones! Yay! So, my job now is to make something awesome, to share with all of you!! However, you'll have to wait for the markers, thet are coming from that Dickblic website. Before I go I need to tell you about a friend I made on SCS, at least I hope I can consider her my friend. She has been one of my inspirations, in this whole blog thing. Her name is Brandi and there is a link to her blog,Barely Banana Days, at the bottom right of this page. She is very talented and helped me to find the designer of my blog. You HAVE to check out her blog, because she just posted the most beautiful card EVER!!! There is also one more blog you must check out and of course that also is listed at the bottom right of this page. Her name is Kim and her site is craftsbykim. She has soo many COOL things posted and has really encouraged me in my craft! She always has a kind word for me and I really appreciate her for that. She also sent me the greatest sticky pad holder and pen, that she made herself! She has them listed on her blog and you NEED to check it out, she is WAY talented too! Thanks for stopping by to visit and I hope you have a great weekend!

Awww. You're so nice! I was all disappointed after I discovered I didn't win the Pink Cat contest, and then I was scrolling through Google Reader and I found your post! Too cute! You really turned my mood right around! Thanks for all the kind words!
