Happy Birthday Gman!!

Today is my boy's birthday... or as he likes to say 'birf day'. He turned a whopping THREE! I am hoping the terrible 2's will recede and disappear soon... not soon enough for me. We never even noticed the terrible 2's with Lgirl, but boy did they come out in him!

He is my snuggler though... loves snugglin' with mommy. He takes after his daddy in that he needs a few minutes to wake slowly. He's not like his big sister and me... we wake up bright eyed and bushy tailed! hehehe

We asked who he wanted to invite to his party and he said, ' Mommy, daddy, sissy and gand ma'. Hubby told him he need to 'widen his social circle' and he said, 'what dad?' hehe. So we're meeting at a place in town tomorrow. It's easier since we had a family Christmas yesterday and we've been busy here. Whew!

He got a BIG train table for his birthday and then we went to Grandma's for dinner, cake and MORE presents. He got a HUGE horse pillow from her. Lgirl wanted her own so I went into town and got her a HUGE cow pillow. I will post pictures tomorrow or so. The camera's out in the car and I don't want to go out there.

Call me lazy, but I just finished mopping the kitchen floor. We had 3 other canine 'guests' since Christmas and there was entirely too much pooping and peeing going on in there! I know sorry about the images. They went hom tonight so I got my floors mopped... I feel so much better after that! We've only got one guest right now, a 14 yr old maltese named Daisy. She's staying for most of January as her parents are snow birds.

Okay, I'm off to check the floors, check the doggie laundry and let in our boarder. Then off to bed as I am off to Walmart in the a.m. to return my returns... wish me luck! I've also got to pick up some goodies for the goody bags for the party.

I hope everyone had a very nice Christmas. I hope 2009 is a MUCH better year for me medically. I started it off with a major surgery, got to experience radiation treatments during the summer and had one more out patient surgery in October. Don't you think that should cover me for a couple of years?! hehee

I get my last MRI of the year (quite literally!) on Wednesday. If that's clear then I only have to have 2 next year (woo hoo!). Hugs to everyone and thanks for being a loyal reader. I promise to have MORE crafty things here in the near future. We are going to be doing a quick renovation of my stamping area this week!

Top Note Gift Card Holder

Here's a picture of another gift card holder I made for my craft shows. It's made with the Stampin' Up! Exclusive Top Note Die from Sizzix. Isn't it the coolest?! I really love it. I used the Snow Swirled stamp set.

Sorry the front picture is kind of blurry and the 2nd picture is a bit bright! I tried taking multiple pictures to no avail! I ran out of Night of Navy grosgrain so I had to use a generic ribbon I got in a ribbon swap.

We've had computer bugs but I think we've exterminated them all! woo hoo. Sorry about that.

Here's a gift card holder my 8 for $10 gals made AND I'm selling at craft shows. If you are interested in any, they are $2.00 each. Email me with your quantity if you'd like any!
This can be used for a winter birthday, just let me know so I can put Happy Birthday on the inside!
