It all started when...

...a friend asked me to make a card.  An owl and a simple sentiment: 'Happy Birthday to a Very Special Person'.  Easy.
But I got carried away.
And THIS happened.
I get addicted easily.
It was all the fault of this yummy blue paper from THIS digikit. I have officially gone polka dot crazy.  Another of the reasons I love digi... it's so easy to add your own typed sentiment on top of the patterned paper before printing.  Perfect for those times when you want a sentiment you just don't own in stamp form!
LOVE the owls in THIS set.
And had to try a Masculine card. (Not my strength!)
And then, I just HAD to play with the peacock from THIS set.

And everyone knows I love THIS little deer...
Had some fun with puns. :)
And who couldn't adore this little guy... love THIS whole set so much!!!
That was my Sunday evening gone! :)
But I've got enough birthday cards to last me a few weeks at least.  Hooray. :)
