That's lots to celebrate, don't you think? Speaking of celebrating, we have been celebrating around my house since last Thursday. Tannon got home from his mission (see the last few posts), Kori, Rick and their kiddos are here for a few weeks, Easton and Daysha came up to spend some time with us, we took family photos (can't wait to see them!), we had Tannon's Welcome Home Open House on Sunday (hundreds came!) and yesterday was my birthday (39 again). Dan fixed all of us a beautiful dinner. He asked me earlier this week if I could pick anything I wanted for my birthday, what would it be. I quickly answered. I just want you to be patient and not complain during family photos (is that something you would love from your husbands too?) and pamper me all day on my birthday. I am exhausted from all of this celebrating. He came through with flying colors! Thank you, Dan-the-Man!

Here is the awesome stamp set (the actual size of the carrier sheet is 6" x 6"):
The 4" x 4" card you see at the top of the post was made using this set. I embossed the stamp you see in the lower bottom corner of the carrier sheet above with my Versamark Pad and Black Embossing Powder on one of our Dimensional Elements Hearts. I then opened my Cotton Candy Pad and rubbed the heart with it. The Musical Background you see was stamped on White Daisy Cardstock with our Black Archival Pad. This stamp comes from one of my all time favorite stamp sets, "Universal Backgrounds". It's a must-have. I added a Black Gingham Bow and Sponged the edges of the note background piece with my trusty Cotton Candy Pad. The sentiment piece is stamped with one of the awesome stamps in the "A Little Thanks" stamp set. To top it off, I added a couple of Clear Sparkles and then mounted everything on a 4" x 4" Black Cardstock Card. Voila! There you have it, a perfect gift card!
While we're at it, let me remind you about the National Scrapbooking Month special:
3. September is National Stamping Month and as usual, Close To My Heart started the celebration a little early. They are celebrating by offering you this gorgeous double stamp set (value of $35.90) for only $5 with a $35 purchase (Before shipping and tax. Clearance items don't apply). Start shopping on my website. You'll be prompted to add this stamp set (and the awesome August Stamp of the Month if you spend $50..this set is valued at $17.95) for only $5 before you check out.
Have a great day, everyone! I'm off to a fun day of shopping and lunch with my sweet daughter, Kori. She is in town for a few more weeks and wanted to take me out to a fun day to celebrate my birthday.
