A Cardinal for the Stash

While Muddamark is taking a break, others are taking turns hosting the Teapot Challenge. Today it was Marilyn's turn. She inspired us with a totally awesome teapot with a gorgeous teapot on it. This card was my response to that inspiration.

I'd like to take a moment to thank anyone who made my birthday the fabulous celebration it was, and actually continues to be. The cards, gifts, well wishes, jokes, phone calls, parties, dinners, lunches, and time spent together shows me how blessed I am. I think one of my best gifts was a LONG phone conversation with one of my nephews who HATES to gab on the phone.......but he talked forevah yesterday and I really feel like I caught up on what was happening in his life down South in North Carolina. (PLUS.....he is buying me some more Copics.....so it was like a double gift....lol....as all you stampers will understand and enjoy!!!)

Wishing you a fabulous rest of your day!!! Sad to say but it is 3:42 pm and the sun is going down and we are gradually heading to that early darkness of winter. Bah Humbug!!!!!
