For Your Birthday!

Hey there!  Just little ol' me again...  I hope that your week has been going well.  Today I see sunshine - yay!  We even have the backdoor open (gasp!).  As I am preparing this post, my DH is cooking.  Backyard on the grill we have some yummy smelling chicken cooking.  I cooked (if you could call it that - lol!) the past three days, so I told him that he could cook today.  He really is a good cook.  Much better than I will ever be!  You know what?  I am totally OK with that : )

Did you know that Prairie Fairy is having a Design Team Call?  You have until Midnight on Friday, April 16 to enter.  Winners will be announced on Sunday, April 18.  Roberta is the BEST Fairy in town, I tell ya  : )  Why not give it a try? 

I have a totally FUN card to show you today.  I've used Gerry's Birthday Set.  This digital set comes from Prairie Fairy Designs and includes a giraffe, gifts and an adorable cake - which I obviously didn't use this time.

The challenge this week at Fairy Fun Fridays is to use eyelets and string.  I don't mind telling ya that I had a terrible time with this card.  It was one of those days that nothing was coming together.  This is the third image I colored...  It was my fault the other images didn't turn out.  They were UGLY!  The colors I used were really, really bad - lol!  I finally settled on this.  At least the colors complement each other!!!  The most fun I had was doing the eyelets.  That part went flawlessly - whew!
I finally planned ahead of time (because Roberta gave us this great challenge) where I wanted to place the eyelets.  I marked on the dp and hammered away!  Usually, I have the papers glued down and then realize that it's too late to include them.

...and here's Gerry!  Isn't he cute?  I love him all ready to party with his hat and big bow tie.  Don'tcha just want to take him home with ya?

It's now time to eat that scrumptious dinner awaiting me...  I wish you could have a taste too.  I'll let you know how it is : )

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
