Happy Birthday Zoe!

I actually got a day off today!!!!! I have been working so incredibly many hours all summer that I am just so burned out!! SO took advantage of my day off by what else???? paper crafting!!!! I actually got 2 cards done :)
This one is from a sketch I saw a while ago from somewhere & finally got a chance to give it a try !!
The card is for my flower loving friend from work, ZOE.
from my stash I used:
Old rose stamp from SU, Happy Birthday stamp from Clear artistic Stamps. All paper is from SU. Ribbon is from Michael's as well as the bling! I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border & of course my nesties!
I think it turned out pretty good...she'll like it :)
Now later this eve I have nothing else to do but visit & comment on all the bloggs I want!!!! I am so excited...I have missed you all!! I sometimes get to sneak a peak... but that has been about it! HOPEFULLY that is all about to change & I will not have to spend so much time at work!!!!!
See you soon!! thank you for the visit!!!
