Happy Birthday with Hippos

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

First, thanks to everyone who commented on my last post.  I am really still on cloud 9.  It was very hard to get any kind of productive work done yesterday at my job.  I started this journey appoximately 3 years ago.  Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would take this long or be this hard.  I thought a year tops.  I am definitely savoring this victory and am so glad that I never gave up. 

For my cards today, I used some super cute paper from DCWV.  They measure 4x4 inches each.  I just love those hippos and the fun colors and the glitter that was on the paper.

***Supplies***
Patterned paper:  DCWV Safari Kids
Stamps:  CTMH Happy Birthday
Other:  PTI buttons

Have a happy Wednesday.  I'm meeting some good friends for lunch so I'm looking forward to that.

PS.  Guess what I won't be doing anymore?  Yep, studying!
