Fabulous birthday

Olo!

Last night I left straight from work and drove the 40 minutes to 'the big city' with some pals to take advantage of a moonlight madness sale at the crafty store there. It was crazy and fun and I got some cool goodies but man, does it feel like I've been going, going, going without a break these past few days! Today I get to stay home but there is plenty to try and get done here too so I doubt it will be very relaxing. Then the whole cycle starts all over again... oy! But I'm not really complaining, I tend to do my best work under pressure. ;)

So quickly, quickly, I finally got the altered Punk Kaylee onto a card here recently for a special internet friend's birthday... happy birthday Terry! I had started this little gal back in August for a paper piecing video and she has been waiting patiently on my desk along with all the papers that I had pulled to go with her until a couple weeks ago. Then she caught my eye when I was wanting to make a b-day card and I thought, "Why not?". She looks like a fun party girl to me... what do you think?

Ok, I've seriously got to get a move on. I hope the rest of you get some time to rest and relax today!
Later! :)
