All those October bithdays again!

So...I told you - 7 birthdays for us in October...mine being on the 5th is great because I get cards at every birthday party in October!! Love it! Anyway - Saturday was Stephanie's 23rd birthday....23...WOW....wasn't she just going off to kindergarten? Crap - it means I am old...well, as the saying goes, "Growing old is mandatory, growing up isn't!!" So - since my favorite past time is coloring....I won't grow up!! LOL So - tomorrow is Bob's and Halloween is Dad's so dinner out tomorrow and Wednesday, school celebrates all October birthdays after school Thursday (I feel a Lemon Drop coming on!) - and Halloween celebrations on Friday! Jam packed FUN!! Yippee!!

So - since my darling is a demo too, the card had to be "boo-ful" - so this lil gem from page 89 of the catty was perfect...since my brain stopped functioning without enough sleep, I had to CASE - but I can still color!!

Stamps: Eastern Influences
Ink: Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Close to Cocoa, Stazon black
Paper: tangerine tango, very vanilla, watercolor paper, DSP Haiku
Access: 5/8 old olive grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals, aqua painter, distressing tool

Here is Stephanie with her ice cream cake - Bob made sure we had a cake for her on Sunday when she decided she wanted us to take her out...since her Dad went AWAY for her birthday with his wife to the shore house - AFTER asking her to go with him on a father /daughter weekend ....IDIOT! And he wonders why she has issues with him...DUH! My DH bought her the cake, made sure he called her on her birthday, and sang (badly) to her when we lit the's NOT rocket science....see that cheesey smile....she is HAPPY! Of course, it's really just cause she's with her mama....
