I stamped a card!!!

Can you believe it? I actually stamped a card! I have been stamping and doing other projects but it has been almost a month since I just sat down and stamped a card! {I didn't realize it had been that long till I just now looked!} WOW! Anyway...the other night I all of the sudden became extremely impatient and irritated that I didn't have my Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set. {it's coming...UPS just isn't coming fast enough} So I cased the card that is in the Stampin' Up! Catalog next to that stamp set {pg. 106} using another set, Embrace Life. I love the green, blue and brown combo. The "birthday" sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink set. I can't wait to get my order so I can make some gorgeous card with that 5th ave. set!!! :)
I hope you are having a fabulous start to your week! Thanks for all the nice comments about the "cake"! Shawn absolutely loved! He waited a day to dive in cuz he said it was to cool to eat, but after he had that first candy...I am now seeing lots of empty spots! ;)
