Happy Birthday...ChaChaCha

A whole year older! How exciting is that! ...

...Ok...I can promise you one thing...this will be a really short post as I hacked into my finger today while cutting an onion...happy birthday?

Other than the pain and gore it's been a birthday for the record books! ...fortunately most of it good! I've been puked on, cut my finger, time for taxes....that's the not so good stuff... hey, every day has something...

ok...remember this one....

This brings me to one of the fun parts of my birthday...I so love this Bella! Well last night my friends surprised me with a little birthday celebration...ohmygoodness...my friends are sooooo awesome!...and again with the surprise and I had noo idea!...my head must really be buried in cards! ;) That makes twice in just a few days!...anyway, they brought me this bella-tastic birthday cake!......
How stinkin cute is this! Oh my!!!!!! You know I didn't want to cut the bella! ...I cut all around her! The cake is delicious! It's one of my favs...an almond pound cake with chocolate truffle filling. Doesn't that sound decadent?! Yum, yum, yum!

I haven't had a chance to take a picture of all of my 'yummy' new cards from swap! I will take those pictures tomorrow when the sun comes out....that really does make a huge difference! Here is my card...Simple, simple, EPLS....

I also had the pleasure of attempting to open a few very well wrapped presents from my boys. They wanted to surprise me and since they couldn't find the wrapping tape they used packing tape! They did a GREAT job! :) All in all a great birthday!

Well, by short post...well, relatively speaking! Before I go, I just wanted to thank each of you for your sweet birthday wishes. I really have the most awesome online stamping friends as well. You guys are so wonderful and I can't tell you how much I really appreciate each and every one of you. You are constantly making my day!

I hope you are all having a great one! I am going to try and do a little stamping...this should be interesting! My new birthday present was some prismas...I've never used these before...I have been so excited all day to give them a try...I found the tutorial on Gina K's blog. I've been waiting all day to use these puppies...I'm hoping my finger doesn't get in the way.

Take care...if I come up with anything fab and I can find enough light to take the picture and post it I will give it a go. Probably without much text...my finger is throbbing a little tiny bit....wawawa! :)

Post you soon!
