birthday sparkle...

Our cable and Internet were out for about 6 hours yesterday...can you believe that? Boy, how we have become so dependant on those things! Mike was home around 2:30 yesterday, since we had an appointment to have our air conditioning units inspected (they are getting kinda old, and the downstairs unit hasn't been cooling quite as well). $500 later we have some freon added, a new switch of some sort and another appointment to follow up in a few months...CRAZY! but A/C is one thing you do not want to be without here in Phoenix!!!! So back to my Internet/cable outage...Mike and I were both home and just sitting on the couch, we couldn't get online or watch TV (crazy!) it was kind of funny! I decided to do some digi scrapping since I didn't need the Internet to do that. It was so nice when I heard the little "beep" my computer does when you get a new email...for 6 hours without Internet access, I got about 20 emails, lol!

I did get a little stamping time in yesterday was nice getting my hands inked up again, ha ha! I still need to make some more cards, so hopefully on Friday or Saturday.

okay...onto the card: I made this one for Josh's birthday last Friday. I used my new Papertrey in color collection. I really am loving their polka dotted cute! It is hard to see in the photo but I added Stardust Stickles to the cake (and popped it up with a dimensional) and was just asking for some "bling".

I hope you have a great day! Thanks for visiting!

supplies used (SU! unless noted): Birthday Whimsy (retired)/It's Your Birthday stamp sets; Summer Sunrise (PTI)/Chocolate Chip/Whisper White cardstock; Chocolate Chip/Summer Sunrise (PTI) ink; Summer Sunrise polka dot ribbon (PTI); Stardust Stickles (Michael's)
