More Birthday Fun

I was up until late last night working on this card so I must admit I slept in this
morning and missed breakfast.  I still enjoyed a lovely coffee and some yummy
oatmeal out on the porch with the fantastic view of the water.  If Irv was with
me then it would have been the perfect morning.  (See below for details of the card)

Lunch was absolutely delicious.  The dining room was so pretty with lemons
the focus.
A delicious Chicken and peppers wrap, Kettle Chips and a Heath chocolate square.
In Canada Heath bar would be like a Skor bar.
The napkin ring above was made with a shower curtain hook and glued to a plastic
lemon slice.  Isn't that cool?  Made by Jan Zimmer, owner of Memories Manor
in St. Clair, Michigan.

Dinner setting was so funky and fun.
Just imagine a bunch of ladies drinking with these straws and everyone having
a mustache.  So fun.  Laughing too hard to take photos.
For dessert there were 3 of us celebrating birthdays.  We each got birthday tiara's
and candles in our yummy ice cream in a cream puff covered in caramel syrup.
The evening brought lots of practical jokes.
A little appearance from the Ghost of Memories Manor outside the window.
So funny!!!!  

Supplies Used on the Snowman card at the top of the Page:

August 1st is the first day to order from the Holiday Catalogue and the snowmen
are on a single stamp called Frosty Friends  that's only $14.95  item #128117
I stamped them using Staz On Black ink ($10.50 item #101406) on
 Stampin' Up! Card Stock Vellum. ($7.95 item #101856)
Flip over the vellum and use your stylus on a foam pad and like magic they
puff out and are white like real snow.  (stylus $5.95 item #125624 and

The sentiment (Merry Christmas) is from the main catalogue and is from the
Christmas Lodge stamp set. ( $31.95 clear mount, item # 123769 on page 13)
 It fits underneath the snowmen perfectly.
Use the Labels Collection Framelits to cut out the image. You can get 6 of this size
frame lit out of one piece of Vellum Card Stock.   The same size frame lit
in Baja Breeze card stock is used as the mat for the vellum.  Sponge Dauber around
the edge with Baja Breeze Classic ink. ($7.25 item 126960)  (Sponge Daubers $14.50 item #102892)
