Has Christmas Gone to the Dogs?

I had an exciting project this week.  My mom wanted me to make a special Christmas card for her hair dresser who loves dogs.  Hmmmmm....OK.

I started searching Google for any interesting designs and eventually landed on this beauty.  I was LOLing at my computer and knew it was perfect!

I embellished the curlers with Stickles and then made the snowflakes with a Sizzix die.  I used sticker paper upside down for them and then added lots of loose glitter.  Finished it off with a rhinestone brad and lots of tulle.
Inside, I wanted to do some kind of hair-themed statement, so I hand-stamped this unique Christmas sentiment:

I think it was a hit ~ my mom didn't even send it to her hair dresser for 3 days, as she wanted to show all her friends first.  That's the best!  :)

Merry Christmas!

Happy Birthday, Honey!

Today is my hubby's 30th birthday!  WHOO!
After a fun day of shopping at Paradise Pen (his new favorite store), we celebrated with pizza and Starbucks.  Our 4-yr-old even did a fabulous birthday dance in the living room.  Not too shabby.
I made Mike this cute card this morning.  I have a tradition of making him hedgehog cards for all occasions.  I loved this darling image.  :)
I used Spellbinders dies for the shape (had to cut the black matting behind the image and yellow card stock by hand).
