Birthday Surprise

Happy Mojo Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! I had planned on spending some time playing with some of the Taylored Expressions sketches, but I didn't do any stamping this weekend. Instead, I spent my free time cleaning and organizing my stamp room. It's looking pretty good now, though there is still the guest room (where I put all the items that I didn't know where to neatly put away in my stamp room).

I thought I'd kick off the week with Julee's latest Mojo Monday sketch #71. I finally gave in and bought some Riley stamps. I've long admired him and thought he was just the cutest moose ever, but I didn't want to get hooked. Well, now I'm hooked! My card is fairly simple and not too fru fru as it is for my Dad's birthday! I did sneak in a little ribbon and a red rhinestone for the cherry on top of his cupcake! I haven't sent this out yet, but here's wishing you an early Happy Birthday, Dad!
