I missed Mojo Monday! Hopefully I can get it done this week. It's a busy one for me!

Today is my Birthday!!! YAY YAY YAY!!! I love my birthday. I rarely do anything exciting, but that's not the point. I actually LIKE getting older. LOL I know everyone is thinking I am crazy right now, but I do. I feel like I get better with age. I figure life out more, I care less what people think, I feel more established and like I'm a better friend now. So, every year when I get older, I get excited to mature more I guess. LOL

I know I haven't been posting very many blogs this last week or so. I came down with the worst case of the stomach flu! I had been sick for 9 days!!! It was terrible. I was starting to think something else was going on (preggers anyone?!?) I know that's what my mom and mother-in-law were both thinking! ha! Anyways, I felt better yesterday and even BETTER today, but I am heading to my doctor this afternoon - just in case.

Today is just a random card I made last night. The hubby was in the cigar room smoking one, so I was hangin' in the craft room! I started with some pink swirl paper from the scrap bin and mounted the black and white disco ball sparkle paper (that's what I like to call it) from my All Occasions Glitter Stack onto it. I have been trying to use some of my old stickers and chipboard stuff because I have so much - but since being hooked on stamping lately, the drawer is full and nothings moving out! This one is from the $1.50 bins at Michael's and came with a whole bunch of other cool ones. I like the swirls on the chipboard frame and the fact that more white was showing then black. Good contrast with the disco balls! I used a cake stamp from my Stampendous! Fluffle's set. I stamped it with Jet Black Ink and embossed it with Stamp-It's Hologram Embossing Powder. I sued my Crayola's to do a touch of coloring and then mounted it on the same pink swirl paper as before. I popped it out from the chipboard frame and and put it all on a angle for depth. very simple - but I really liked how it turned out.
If I have time this afternoon I'm gonna try Mojo Monday - but birthdays always seem to be busy! ha!
Have a great day!
