They say it's your birthday

Good morning!
As I've mentioned, today is my birthday. Yep I'm turning the big 3-Oh no you di'int think I was really going there! LOL ;)
I'm really excited to spend the day out shopping with my sisters in Spokane. It's going to be a long drive but worth it once we get over there and it feels like such a splurge! Hopefully I find some nice things to treat myself to besides the couple new winter shirts and such that I need to get. Though even if I don't it will be great just breaking my routine and getting away for a day.

So really quick, here's today's card. I used another Gorjuss Girl stamp and altered her just a bit to get rid of the weird rope thingy that hung around her neck. Then I added the Hero Arts ornament stamp hanging from her hand to make her fit my Christmas theme. Not too many more and I will have all the Christmas cards I need done for this year... yeah!
Okey dokey, I'm outta here!

Oh and I won't be back til late tonight so don't be surprised if I have another late post tomorrow... ;)
