Happy Birthday Matt!

I can't believe it, I actually made a card one whole day before I had to give it! I was so impressed with myself! I don't know if anyone is like me, but I always find myself making the card at about the same time I am supposed to be at the event! If only one day I will be as good as some of you, and actually have a stock pile of cards... I'll keep dreaming...

This card came together so quick! It is all product I've been dying to use, especially the super cute elephant rub-on! The Basic Grey "Ambrosia" line, is one of my absolute favourite lines Basic Grey has ever released! I love every paper, rub-on, chipboard and embellishment in the entire collection! The colours are exactly me. On the inside I used a rub-on from the same package that says "Be Yourself. Everyone else is taken." Cute eh?

I'm so excited to see what Basic Grey will come out with next. Kim and I will see in a couple of weeks when we head off to CHA. Last year I was in a crowd with about about 75 other ladies impatiently waiting for the doors to open on the first day of the show. (Basic Grey ships in the order that you arrive at their booth, so you want to make sure you get there early!) The second the doors opened, we all sprinted across the entire convention center, all of us out of breath as we reached the Basic Grey booth just to get our number, I think I was 31. This year I'm training on my Wii Fit... I'm gonna get number 1!!! Lookout Ladies!

While I'm still blabbing about Basic Grey, I should show you guys the newest card pack... it's from the new "Bittersweet" line.. too cute... and easy... I made this one night while watching a movie. Barely anything thinking involved. Just what you need some nights when you want to create, but don't want to pull everything out. Eight cards, and they even have envelopes now,...bonus!
