"Nobody's perfect, I gotta work it....."

"...again and again till I get it right." Boy, ain't that the truth! I thought the title was fitting today since MIL, Jolee, Ava, and I are finally going to see the Hannah Montana movie tonight! And, it's also fitting since I haven't posted in 5 days! Shame on me! I was doing so well too! Well, my sister and niece came up and spent the weekend (Friday through Sunday) and we were all having a great time, so crafty stuff and blogging was put on the back burner. Well, other than the card I had to make to send with sis for my other niece's birthday. Oh, and I loved it too! You'll see it in a second.

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Ours was kind of hectic! Wednesday, Joe left for work in the morning and came home a few minutes later telling me his tire blew. He takes it off and I take it into town in my van to have them replace it. $90. Thursday morning he leaves for work and comes home again a few minutes later telling me the brand new one just blew too! Off to the store I buy another new tire, only this time I go to a different place. Only $65 this time. When I get home, Joe figures out that it's a broken coil on the strut so he cuts it off so he can drive it in to have it fixed. He had to take off work both days. Bleh! It will be a little under $400 to replace the coils. Bleh again! Ah, well. We are blessed to have what we do!

So, here is the birthday card I made this weekend. I used Queen Kat Designs 'Happy Skullz' set. I love that set!!

  • PAPER- Marcella (Target brand)
  • INK- Stazon Jet Black
  • OTHER- Marvy Super Jumbo circle punch and Mega scalloped circle punch, iridescent and red glitter, glue pen, ribbon, pop dots

This one is from the Doodle Factory Valentine's set. I just love this bee!! I glittered up his wings and heart with Stickles.

  • STAMPS- Doodle Factory Valentine, Medium stitch set (Starving Artistamps)
  • INK- Brilliance black ink
  • OTHER- Copic markers, stickles, artificial flower, pop dots

Here is my last one for the day!
