30 is the new 20...I think?!

Good morning!! I heard a song on the radio today and it went like this (hear me singing) "Monday...As painful as a root canal". And then my 6 year old told me that he hates monday- it's just sooooo BORING!! I told him that you have to have Mondays to get to the Fridays...he pondered that as he headed out the door. That'll give him something to think about on the bus ride to school this morning!
So tonight its supposed to snow here and we haven't even made it to the last day of summer!! Grrr...Alberta weather makes my desire to live on Vancouver Island so much stronger;)
Onto the card of the day. This one is going out to my friend Sarah- who is celebrating her 30th Birthday soon. I am going to get together with her one night this week for birthday cocktails! So Sarah, if you read this, then act surprised when you see your card, okay? hehe

I used MFT's Birthday Girl a la mode and stamped her in memento tuxedo black onto neenah CS. I coloured her with copics and added crystal stickles to her tiara (of course:), earrings, necklace, dress, gloves, shoes, icing and candle flame. I cut and embossed the image with an oval nestie and sponged with pink piroutte SU ink. I cut gray CS with Labels 10 nestie and added rhinestones to the top and bottom. The sentiment was also sponged with pink ink and matted in gray CS, then popped up with dimensionals. The little bow and cord button are both SU. The layout is a sketch from Jen's SFYTT. Pretty simple, really! I love girly-girl cards though- Being the only female in the house, sometimes its fun to get out the pink (I have to usually buy some, as all I have on hand is boy-stuff) and bling!!

Here is a close-up and you can see the sparkle a bit better here. I wanted to have lots of sparkle, as 30 is a pretty 'special' (read: rough) birthday for most, well, I was in the hospital recovering from giving birth to my latest son, so I couldn't have cared less!! But for those of you not bedridden, sore nipples, scared to poop, eating soggy toast, walking like someones sticking you with a hot poker...then I can see how 30 gives you a good arse-kicking. So hopefully this card cheers her up (and maybe a few Lemon Merengues at Earls!! Yum). So cheers to you Sarah on your 30th!!!
