a banner birthday

a few days after the fact the birthday queen would like to acknowlege the birthday of a special friend - miss Tina!

here's what i made for her day -

A birthday banner! Here it is hung across my fireplace - so i could show the whole thing at once. But here are some closeups :
I used some Heidi Swapp chipboard letters and Making Memories chipboard hearts and gave them a coating of Martha Stewart fine glitter. I cut out circles for the front and back as well as a scalloped circle (that got sandwiched in between with the ribbon) using my Nestabilities - i really love those Nestabilities!
Glad you had a nice birthday Tina!
Otherwise around here - I stayed up too late watching Super Tuesday results last night. I'm still recovering from the lack of sleep.
I spent several hours yesterday addressing Save The Date card envelopes for my niece who is getting married in July of this year. Addressing, stuffing, sealing, affixing postage. We never did stuff like Save The Date's back in my day. Boy i'm showing my age huh? We just called people. Go fig.....
Did you ever notice the abbreviation for Save The Date is STD? kinda yucky huh?
I have to take the kitties to the vet tomorrow - not sure if both of them have something going on so I'm taking them in just to be safe. Wish me luck - they absolutely detest any travel in the car and are also not fond of the vet office (they love my sister but her office is on the other side of the country! waaaah!)

Happy Birthday, Tina! Did you send this to her or is she coming to your house??? I gotta see those Nestabilities. I've wanted to buy them, but trying to be good. Do I really NEED another gadget? LOL!

Love the banner, too cute! STD...LOL. and ohhh hope the kitties are ok and that travel was not to bad. Carriers. We always use one. One incident of kittie wee on a fabric car seat taught me the HARD way...let me tell you, that summer was NOT pleasant! LOL.

MEGA WONDERFUL (I almost said awesome, but I know how you detest that word). I love this!!! The nestabilites sound really cool!!! I bet Miz Tina flipped over this gorgeousness!!!

Tracy, I looooooooove this, and even moved enough stuff off the floor to get close enough to the wall to hang it up! It is a bit deep in here... crafting is not for the weak of heart! Thank you again miss, I couldn't be more touched! :)
