Happy Birthday!

So I know many of you know my passion for CHF backgrounders and Scrapblocks TM and for those of you who frequent my blog you know I LOVE houndstooth. So add a new one to the list. An absolute must have. I really mean it...this scrapblock is the COOLEST Scrapblock TM ever!!! It's called distressed grid and you can see the gallery here filled with uniquely fresh ideas. I used it to enhance Kim super cool numbers. We aren't really celebrating a birthday here but I figured it would be fun nonetheless.



I took the same approach inside as I did with the card called Lucky and created a money/gift card pocket.

While I am on the topic of fun ways to present gifts I wanted to thank a few of my readers. It never ceases to amaze how many of my readers consistently come back and leave a message. And since I know how long it can take to leave messages on blogs every day I wanted to take the time each month to acknolwedge a few. Marlou, Juliann, Amy Rohl, please contact me with your snail mail so I can send you an early Christmas gift...although with the Canadian mail system it may be a while before you get it *smiles* Thank you and thank everyone who leaves me a comment and makes my day.

Have a marvelous Monday.

I don't think I will ever have all the time I want to use all the CHF stamps I want, but I'm willing to try!! ;)

Love the new backgrounder, and of course I love what you've done with it!
