Birthday Wishes

Good morning and happy Sunday! As you read this, I'm still on vacation up in Oregon. I've had lots of fun bf time and great conversations. We've made sure to get in some good shopping (yay no sales tax!), and definitely some good food. On Friday, I got the chance to hang out with my sister a little bit. She picked me up in the bus she drives for Bend's Therapeutic Recreation department, and I joined her and the other interns for some Get Fit time. We drove the bus around to pick up all of their adult participants (dealing with everything from Down's Syndrome, to William's disorder, to spinabifida). Such a blast! It was walking night. We found a great trail, did some stretching, walked a bit, did some crunches, walked some more, got wet in the sprinklers, and then headed home. It was so amazing to get just a glimpse at what Sharon has chosen as her career. I am so much more in awe of her after living it for just a few hours.

Today, I'm off to church with my sister again. I'm going to serve in the early service to help out my bf (whom is a children's pastor at the church), and then attend the second service with my sister. I love that I get to spend time with both of them while I'm here!

I have a random card for you today. It's rare day when I don't start a card with a sketch, but I had some scraps lying around from this card a few days back, and thought I might as well whip something up with them. I hate throwing away larger scraps. Especially scraps that just happen to be cut to a certain size already!

Since these two colors scream happiness to me, I decided to make this another birthday card. I'm still working on replenishing my stash. I pulled out my Everyday Button Bits yet again, glued some buttons on, added some jewels and called it a day.

  2. Oh... how cute! Love the button balloons, the colors and the rhinestones in the corner! Cute Cute! So glad that you are enjoying your vacation!

  3. Love this sketch!! Love how the oval overlaps the rectangle panels but leaves room for the sentiment...yay, who can go wrong with hot pink and yellow? We need to think of another great combo for the fall... I think it should have Pumpkin Pie in it!! LOL
