Birthday Present Cards

 I had an AMAZING birthday. So fun! We went to Sea World, saw the Orcas and got completely soaked. We checked out the fishes and then headed out to lunch. We went to the same Thai place we went last year and it was another absolutely flawless meal (if you're in SD, it's called Rama Thai on 4th in the Market District). I even got a free dessert of mangoes and sticky rice with a little candle in it. I looked up a scrapbook store called Paper Tales and did some shopping. They were a bit expensive, but I got these goodies here. I love Lawn Fawn! Then we headed up to Disneyland. It was EMPTY! It was so cool, all the ride lines were short except the Cars Land stuff. Neither of us was very impressed with Cars Land, but we enjoyed our time in Disney until it closed at midnight. Finally we went on to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles for a very late dinner.
And I had to make a few cards right away with my new stamps. I love the simple and fun images of Lawn Fawn cos they're perfect for paper piecing. And then I decided to first try out the embossing with Spellbinder dies. I got three sets when they were 50% off at Joann's (this is one of them) so I figured I'd test them out. I really like the effect with the ink rubbed on the edges. I gotta use my airbrush more so I'll try this again with that. Plus, I just like the little lemons.
