Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for visiting my blog. As the title suggests, I love to scrapbook, stamp, and sing! I will share cards and scrapbook pages I create, as well as information about my music - Barbershop harmony.

Happy Valentine's Day! They say it's my birthday...

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!  Yes, my favorite holiday of the year since it's my birthday!  Also that of birthday twins, Brenda U - a Hero Arts Flickr group friend - and Lynn, a friend for many years and a sister Drum Corp alumnae.  I had a lovely birthday starting with my Dad making me pancakes for breakfast.  Then we all exchanged Valentine cards and chocolates (then we ate a few chocolates as our breakfast dessert - ha, ha). 

I made this Valentine for my parents:
A Devoted Pair
The little woman and man are from a wooden Hero Arts set called Three People (the third stamp is a girl). So cute! I have them holding hands like my parents still do.

And here are the birthday cards for my birthday twins. First, for Brenda:
Happy Birthday Brenda!

I used three of the heart images from the Four Hearts set by Hero Arts with some patterned paper from Basic Grey's Kissing Booth 6x6 pad.

And here's Lynn's card:
Happy Birthday Cupcake
I just love this Newspaper Cupcake by Hero Arts!  I topped it with a conversation heart from their fun clear Sweet Hearts set with bunches of conversation hearts.

My sister Tami and her hubby Dave joined us for my birthday dinner.  Here I am with my heart-shaped pizza:
Birthday pizza
I'm wearing thermal gloves as it just came from the oven!  It looked a whole lot more like a heart prior to baking - LOL.  Pizza came from Papa Murphy's and tasted delicious!!

You can't have a birthday at our house without cake.  Here I am with my cake:
Birthday cake 2012
Yummy cake from Sam's Club, though even the frosting lovers agreed it was a bit too much frosting!

Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day and didn't eat too many sweets (like me!).

Sounds like your birthday was a very sweet one, Linda! How nice that your parents and sister were there with you. The cake is beautiful. I love all the cards you made; especially the one for your parents. Happy Birthday and Happy Valentine's Day, too! (a great day for a birthday, I think.)

Happy belated birthday! I love these cards Linda! I just started following your blog - I read your comment on Virginia's blog and LOVED the quote you used so I had to check out your blog! Love the cupcake with the candy heart but they're all fabulous!
