WELL, BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!

Hi all!!! Whew - another whole day with mostly no Internet!!! After I posted on Sunday, we lost connection again, and it was on and off most of yesterday, but I think it might actually be fixed now!!! I surely hope so - I hate being without my computer!!! Sooooo, since I missed Friday's posting of the Stamp Something Challenge, I decided that I would post it today! The theme is Birthday Somethings and is sponsored by Starving Artistamps! Please make sure you all pop over to the site and give the DT gals some love, they did a fabulous job this week - I just got to see them myself, lol!!! And, if you want to play along, make sure you upload your link to the site so we can all check it out and YOU get a chance at winning some fabulous sets from Starving Artistamps - WOW!!! I made this birthday card for a friend who absolutely loves the Fat Chef (well, that's what I call him anyway!) stamp set - actually, it's called Voila! So, going with that theme, this is the card I came up with!! I used some of the yummy new DP from Stampin' Up! which is now available since the NEW CATTY WAS RELEASED YESTERDAY - WHOOHOO!!! (SEE MY SIDEBAR FOR THE LINK) I used it also to paper piece my favorite guy and I think he turned out pretty cute!! And, since she already received the card and told me how much she loved him, I am very happy with how it turned out! So, better late than never for my challenge card, right?! And, now I am hopefully back on track because I have some fabulous stampin' projects to show you over the next few days for upcoming classes I have going on!! I hope to get lots of blurfing in today to check out everything you have all been doing - have a FABULOUS day!!!

Wonderful card. Your girlfriend will love it!! Sorry I haven't been around lately; I have something up my sleeve which has prevented me from blogging, creating and reading blogs. I'm so excited about the new cattie. My first order is going to be the chick on the chair with other chick verses and matching wheel. I'm in a Stamper's 12 group so I order once a month.
