Happy, happy, happy, happy...

Hello, hello!

Well here we are at another fine weekend. I've got work today and more snow piling up outside but I'm not gonna let it get me down. Positivity is the name of the game and even if I would rather be enjoying sunshine and sandy beaches, I'm going to make the best of what I've got. Perhaps I can find a movie to watch tonight that will do the traveling to warmer climes for me. ;)

Anywho, today I've got the last of the three SOG Birthday cards that I made for this past week's release. This one features Baker Mae and something about her was giving off a bit of a 50's retro housewife kinda vibe to me. Though I can't recall ever seeing a 50's housewife with plum purple hair like hers, LOL! I couldn't help it though, seeing as how I had already given Birthday Mae and Cupcake Mae each pink hair, this Mae couldn't be left out of the fun. And who knows... maybe one of those 50's tv actresses did have purple hair, we just don't know because all those shows are black and white! :)

Don't forget that all of the new SOG birthday stamps are now available in the SOG store, including the special birthday digital stamp that has been awaiting a name. If you submitted a suggestion for it then be sure to hop on over to the SOG blog and see if you are the lucky winner!

Toodles!

Love the happiness this card exudes - perfect for a birthday card. Stay warm! Can I rub it in a little bit? It's 63 degees here right now and will get warmer - unseasonably warm for this time of year.

Hi Amy. This card is so cute! I just makes you smile. I love the colors and the happy feel to it. Just adorable! Hope you had nice weather today. We had sunshine and it is still melting. Who knows what it will be tomorrow. We are suppose to get 4 to 8 inches tonight. Mitchell is hoping for the snow so he can get an extra extra long weekend, but I am not counting on it. When I was in school we only had our school close once is those 12 years and that was when Mt St. Helens blew. We were out of school for two weeks as everything was covered in ash and my Dad was in the Air National Guard at the time and he had to go to Sprague to help dig them out. It was not fun in any way shape or form. Ahhhh the memories. :O) Hugs, Lisa
