Birthday Treats birthday was Friday, but since I'd worked Thursday night (12 hour shifts: 7 PN to 7 AM), I slept Friday : /   ANYway, dh was going to take me out Saturday..just me and him.  I couldn't go without the kids so we all jumped in the truck and headed to Cleveland to Ryan's Steakhouse. YUMMY!!!  My 11 yo ds wanted to go to a craft store (didn't know if there was one in Cleveland -never been there before).  Well, as we spotted Ryan's, I spotted a Hobby Lobby across from it!  Yipee!!!  It's SOOOO much nicer than the one in Knoxville!  I found the clearance section and WOW!  Found CB E folders, dies, Spellbinders, deco brads, paintbrushes, papers, cardstock, more stamps...I was in HEAven!  Sisn't get a chance to get to the ribbon and fibers :(  Apparantly, they do not have a public restroom!  BUT...that's okay, because I had a bunch of new toys to play with :).  One of the things I got was the Swiss Dot CB EF and a borders EF.  This card is made using the swiss dot and two of the borders. Also, a Spellbinders buckle. The stamped image is stamped with Color Box pigment ink (Orchid) and heat embossed with pink powder. I filled in the border with gold enbossing powder.

I also found a stamp set from See d's  Savoir Faire - Boutique Grunge - and made this card. The inks are SU classic ink pads; Classic Black,Chocolate, River Rock, Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi.  I used an irridescent blue/green glitter and outlined the wings, bodies and antenae of the butterflies.

As if THAT wasn't enough, when we got home, my two oldest ds' and their families were at our house waiting for us!  All the grandbabies had made me cards, and my oldest ds even made me one!  AND, had gotten a cake...and ice cream...and brought his X-box over with his Guitar Hero games!
My youngest ds bought me a movie - Bedknobs and Broomsticks :)  My dd bought me two books...It was the best birthday EVer!
