Happy Birthday, Anne Marie!


After posting my belated birthday card this morning, I was reminded by Lisa that today is Anne Marie Hile’s birthday and Lesley over at Dynamic Duos is hosting a surprise linky party for the occasion!  Tracey had put the bug in my ear last night and I woke up this morning completely spacing it out!  DD was taking a nice, long morning nap and DS3 was playing quietly by himself, so I managed to resolve the matter in just a few minutes with a stamp, some ink, a pencil eraser and a little bling!

Stamp:  Stampin’ Up!

In honor of her love for Stampin’ Up!, pink and bling, I tried to create something along those lines, but clean and simple, of course!  I created the dots with my ole pencil eraser trick.  Simply dab the end of a pencil eraser onto your ink pad and you have instant access to polka dots in whatever color and arrangement you so desire!

I hope you have an absolutely wonderful birthday, Anne Marie!
