The husband's birthday and a card for Emily

Today is the husband's birthday!  Yay!  Friday night we watched The Hunger Games with a friend, last night a couple of friends threw him a barbecue, and today we headed to the North Shore! We ate at Giovanni's shrimp truck (garlic for me, lemon butter for him), Kua Aina burger (pineapple burger for me, bacon burger for him), and had a Dole whip at the plantation.  :) MMMmmmmMMmm, yummy birthday!  Before today's hoopla, I presented him with his gift:

A basket of coffee goodies!  Lavender tea, flavored syrups, cocoa, cookies, a gigantic coffee cup, a Starbuck's gift card, and yummy smelling coffee bath products from Bungalow Bath Body on Etsy.  He loved everything!

When I got home, it was time to get to work.  I have a bunch of crafty things to make from design team projects to upcoming hops to Easter treats to party favors.  Whew.  Before all of that though, I encountered the Cards for Emily hop.  I had to make a card for this girl first and foremost... her story brought tears to my eyes.  So here is my card for Emily:

Digi by Doodle Dragon Studios - Dustin Pike (created just for her!).  Inked up with Copics.  Cardstock, paper, die, ink, and stamp all by SU.  Gonna slip in some kitty cat stickers to the inside too. :) Hope she likes it!  If you haven't heard Emily's story yet, please go to the link above and hop along.  If you have a spare minute or two, make and send her a card!  Dustin Pike is generous enough to give the entire cat/pony digi stamp set if you promise to make Emily something with it.  :) 

Entering this is in:

What a great day today was!  Hope everyone's day was equally awesome.  And tomorrow is a state holiday (woohoo!) so I get to sleep in and finish my crafty projects!  'Till tomorrow!
