Birthday wishes

TGIF my friends!

So has anyone else been hit with loads of snow this past week? We've been watching it pile up since Wednesday and it has been absolutely frigid as well. It's like Mother Nature is all of a sudden making up for the late start to winter with a vengeance, LOL!

Thankfully, I've had plenty of bright and colorful birthday cards to create keeping my spirits buoyed during the current white out. Take Birthday Mae for instance... I was cruising around Pinterest and came across a photo of a gal who had dyed her hair in this two-toned pink ombre that was so pretty and I had to try recreating the look on a stamp! Mae was perfect because with that fun dress of hers she already looked like a birthday cake. ;)
All of the new SOG birthday stamps are now available in the SOG store and we have a cool customer showcase over on the SOG blog! Check it out! :)

Well, I hope that whether you are snowed in or enjoying sunshine that your weekend is a wonderful one. Thanks for stopping by!
