Hot Diggity Dog!

My cousin and I both have birthdays in July. She will turn 25 on July 1, and I will turn 26 (eek!) on July 25. We decided to throw a joint birthday BBQ and pool party this year at her apartment, and got together over the weekend to make invitations.

I am so tickled pink with these, I cannot even tell you! We laughed the entire time we were making these. I think I saw the idea somewhere of putting the hot dog stick in Sniffer's mouth ... I'm sorry that I can't remember whose blog I was looking at!

Anyway, here they are! *giggle*

The pool has blue Stickles for the water, and the cloud has some sparkly glitter as well. I just love the purple/pink colored BBQ! Cracks me up - a couple of girly-girls throwing a BBQ. :)

Psst ... Dawn & Karen ... I know you agree with me - the googley-eye is exactly what the card was missing! ;) I thought my cousin was going to fall off her chair laughing when I busted out my beloved container of googley-eyes! tee hee.

I'm baaaack ...

... this time with pictures! I have been a busy-busy-bee lately.

(click on any photo for a reeeeeally big version!)

Here is a card I made for my dear friend Patty (who just turned 50!), along with a cute little altered tealight holder.

One of Geoff's cousins is getting married this month, and just had a bridal shower. Here is the card and also the photo album I purchased (from her wishlist) and jazzed up a bit!

And a baby card for Geoff's aunt, who had a baby shower today.

More later ... I'm off to have "movie time" with Lily on this rainy Saturday evening. Popcorn, licorice, and gummy bears await! :)
