Well its May 2nd!
That means tomorrow is my Birthday!! YEAH! I’m actually happy to be 31 (sort of)
I always make myself a birthday card 😀 I hope to do that today (and post ON my actual birthday :D)
We are celebrating with friends today. We are all going out to eat (like 20 of us) at TGIFridays. We all have kids so they are the place that is the most accommodating! For some reason I LOVE TGIFridays. Fried Green Beans and Fried Plantains-YUM. Im sure I’ll be sick
Tomorrow is “my day” so Jay lets me “eat out” where ever I want for Lunch & Dinner! WAHOO! Breakfast is always my fave-homemade Belgian Waffles, with butter,caramel, whip cream and syrup 😀 Now (given healthier choices) Ill skip all the extras and just have fat free whip cream and fresh strawberries (still Yum-O!).
My mom bought me a TOTAL Spa package-mani, pedi, facial and deep tissue massage! Can you say HEAVEN!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway-I’m happy for my birthday 😀 I know I sound like a kid huh? But how often do we get a day to be spoiled? I know I don’t get many, so I definitely milk it, for all its worth.
Today is the very first official My Time To Create Challenge with my NEW! Team of talent! Im in awe of the samples! Wait till you see. You are sure to get inspired.
Here is the sketch

Now for my peek!
A hot cuppa
I have long awaited this image from Whiff of Joy-Willow with Hot Chocolate. She was FINALLY in stock, so I snagged her.
I made this girl to be similar to me :D, and using my favorite color-purple
She also features a felt flower I made-which I included a video for today
This is the felt flower that I show you how to cut from felt, in your cuttlebug machine. I also share how to use your nestabilities to cut felt as well.
I also show you how I stitched the flower, so you can see how easy and cost effective it is to create your own felt embellishments!! They would typically run you several dollars for only a couple in the store.
Here is the close up view of the sentiment I chose.
It is from JustRite Stampers -A little caffiene
Me loving coffee-it was PERFECT!
Here is the video-on how to make your own felt flowers
I hope you find the video helpful 😀
Now we move onto the My Time To Create Challenge Team.
This is a collective view of PEEKS .
You have to hop around to see WHO made WHAT!
Let me tell you, these girls are going to keep me hopping with their creativity, fresh outlook, energy and TALENT!
Thanks for stopping by!
