Happy "dirty-30" to me!!

I've spent a glorious Sunday with family and friends celebrating the last day of my 20's! Tomorrow I will be turning the big 3-oh!! I have barely seen my scrap room today, let alone crafted. So, I will share two cards with you made by some people close to my heart. (Bear in mind they are NOT crafters!!) :)
First, this is the card my husband made me:I don't think you can tell by the picture, but he actually embossed the cupcake image! He's never even seen me use the Cuttlebug and yet he still managed to figure it out! I was VERY impressed! He colored it and even stamped inside the card. He definitely brought his A-game for this birthday! :)

Second is a card made by my sister:My sister will be the first to tell you that she is the farthest thing from crafty. So for her to make such a cute card is nothing short of a miracle!! :) She decorated the inside too.

I had such a great day! I even got to go shopping after my party. It doesn't get much better than that. Then, I walked in to this:Now, there is nothing wrong to coming home to that sweet face! It's just that before I left that sweet face was surrounded by a lot more hair!! :) This is what he looked like before my short trip (Well this pic was a few weeks ago, but you'll see where I'm going with this):So, needless to say, daddy was quite busy! After the initial shock I calmed down and realized that less is better for this warm weather! Colson is sort of "known" for his crazy hair though. It hasn't laid down from the moment he was born. It's a little shocking to see that wild hair relatively tamed. No worries though. His hair grows faster than any kid I've ever seen! :) It should be back to it's old self in a month or so.

I've gotten rather long winded in my old age! Sorry about that. I'm off to the movies, but before I go, here are a few more birthday card/party pictures to finish off!

Happy Birthday! What terrific cards you received. I'm especially impressed by the one made by your hubby. Mine won't even go in my craft room let alone try to make something with any of my supplies.

Happy Belated Birthday!!! I'm late like usually - so sorry Wendy. I was down and out and missed that it was your B-day! HUGZ- DEE!!!

Your husband is very talented! I would be really scared if my fiance' tried to make me a card. He's too much of a manly man. LOL

I hope you had a wonderful birthday!
