Happy Birthday Ladies

Hello! Have you been up to anything interesting? I spent my day crawling in and out of bed. No I’m not ill, I was testing mattresses. What a dreadful chore. I felt like Goldilocks. To hard, to soft, and hopefully just right. We shall see after it’s delivered and slept on for a night or two. Some sales people are so frustrating. I told one gentleman I wanted a firm mattress. He lead me over to a bed and said I think you’ll like this. I sank into what must have been a foot of soft foam, it literately engulfed me. I actually needed his help to get out of it. How can anyone sleep on something like that, I would be afraid of being smothered in my sleep. Of course I felt my carpeted floor would have been softer and more comfortable then others. So glad it’s not something I need to do often. It’ll be delivered tomorrow. Between 11AM and 1 PM, just hope it’s here by bed time.

Seems a lot of the lovely ladies in my life were born in October. Six in 11 days. Pushed for time I decided to make them all the same card, assembly line fashion.

The pattern paper is from DCWV Linen Closet Matstack. Everything else were scraps and from my stash. For my medallion I printed my sentiment on white, cut and embossed with Petite Scalloped Circles Large and inked the edges with ink dusters and TH broken china. I then layered it on blue, cut and embossed in the same manor. I was quite pleased with the effect of the layering and embossing.
Thanks for stopping by and for the time you take to leave a comment. They each make my day a little brighter.
Have an Amazing Day!

  1. Adorable card Bernie! So funny about the bed - it's such an important thing to get right too. We're prevaricating here (yay, another big, grown up word!) about changing our bed - it scares me a bit in case we get it wrong :( Have a super weekend, ours is destined to be quiet if you get my drift - will e ASAP honey :) Di xxx

  3. What a pretty card, Bernie. Good luck with the mattress. We shopped for one a few years ago because our old one was killing my husband's back. Now he's fine and I'm the one with backaches in the morning. What to do? :)

    So your mattress was NOT firm, huh? What a funny story. But, I'm sure you were very frustrated and had reason to be.
