Birthday Blessings

So, Tuesday was my birthday.  I *heart* birthdays. :)

This year was especially nice, as my hubby took the day off to spend with us.  He's a dairy farmer, so for him to have a day off, he has to TAKE it off.  No M-F/8-5 with weekends off job for him, lol! So, you seee....I am VERY thankful when he takes a day totally off. :)

A "party" with my family the night before - mom STILL makes us each our own special meal - is she a gem, or WHAT? My family is so sweet & generous.

Phone calls, Cards, and FB messages...oh, I feel so LOVED! :)

The Saturday before was breakfast out with a girlfriend - I so treasure that time!

Today's card is made using the stamp set I received from said friend: "Aviary".
I also made it to participate in this week's Color Challenge at SCS...use only Black, Red, & White.

The picture quality is poor, sorry about that.  It's a grey and dreary morning, and I'm too impatient to wait for better lighting, lol.

Well, what do you think (poor picture aside, lol)?

I'm sorry I haven't been on here much has just been so crazy busy!  This was actually supposed to be yesterday's post...but things happen and now I sit here finishing it today. ;-) 

I'm thinking one of my New Year's Resolutions will involve more frequent blog posting. ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day!!


  1. A happy belated birthday. What a precious day full of memories with you wonderful husband. Love that card. Thanks blessing my day. :) I also want to wish you and your family a very Blessed Christmas and a wonderful 2011.

  2. Happy Belated Birthday. So glad you had a wonderful day! Love the card. There is something to be said for Black and white with a touch of red. Hope your Christmas is blessed and your new year a happy, healthy one!

  3. Happy belated birthday. You and I share the same day, but I have quite a few years on you I'll bet. I celebrated by picking up my sister at the airport. She flew in from North Carolina. We shared a late lunch. Really miss having her living nearby. Have a wonderful Christmas.

  4. Here's another Happy Belated birthday Crystal! Sounds like you had a wonderful day/time. that's what birthdays are for "special treatment and fun!" Love the card. The ribbon is a great touchand love the simplicity of the 3 color combo. Have a great Christmas Crystal and happy stamping!
