I just celebrated my 35 birthday and my wonderful girlfriend Lana
gave me the most wonderful gift ...




So today I got busy and inked up my gorgeous new stamps and got to colouring.


















This last pic was inspired by Jodie from Oz and her gorgeous ribbon hair Tilda ... Mine does not come close to her stunning card.

Lime Tart and a little give away...

Hi Everyone

If you check my side bar there is a link to take you to

http://colscreatingmemories.blogspot.com/2011/05/lime-tart-and-little-giveaway.html

Colleen has not only a stunning Blog for you to checkout but a wonderful give away from Phillippa at Lime Tart. You have to go check them out. There kits are to die for.

Getting back to my original train of thought. Colleen has a set of the beautiful Lacey circles by Spellbinders to give away. But not only does one lucky person get that they also get the gorgeous card featured in the same post.

So lady's stop by Colleens Blog and pop over to Lime Tart, I love the names of their kits, but there is more than kits!!

Good luck!!
