Magnolia Birthday Card

I had time to do a quick birthday card before I left for the wedding, so you'll have something to look at while we're gone.  I colored Tilda with Copics and sponged the edges wth Memento Desert Sand ink.  (I love this color for giving a vintage look to my projects.   I wonder how the new duos by PaperTrey are going to be.  They intrigue me, too...)

The Happy Birthday and dp are from SU and - of course - I used my Martha Stewart Doily Edge punch. :)  Small things make me happy.  Speaking of which, I got $30 for Mother's Day and I can't decide how to spend it.  A Scor-pal?  More Nesties?  More Stamps?  or should I get supplies like paper and stuff... or maybe not stamping things at all!  

My dh gives me the money just to watch me try to figure out what to buy.  I've found that the surest way to keep me from spending money is to give me some!! LOL!!

Talk to you soon!

I totally get the "what do I spend it on" thing! I've been hoarding and saving every penny and then received some more for mother's day...I'm almost ready to make a purchase! But I'm with you--supplies to build up my stash or stamps?!? It takes me forever to decide!
