This is the card I made for my best buddy's birthday! Isn't it cute??? I told her not to look at the blog for a week until I get it mailed to her in California. Happy Birthday Noreen!!!! We have been best friends since 1977! She has met or known every guy I have ever dated! Talk about being able to tell some funny stories about me!! I used an Inky Antics stamp and the new Two Scoops paper by Basic Grey to make this card. (Notice how I changed the subject??)

Not a lot of new to report around these parts. My reading and stamping time has been limited by my on-line paralegal schooling. I am in week three right now.

There have a few exciting developments however. First of all I found out that my friend Beth's gorgeous art work is going to be on the cover of the next issue of Somerset Legacy!! Can't wait to see it! I will post it here when I get it. I am now officially stalking Barnes and Noble for the new issue.

The Oscar nominations were announced yesterday. I want to try and see all of the movies that were nominated. So far, I have only seen Juno and I loved it! Bought the soundtrack too!

This morning I found out that I was awarded the prestigious "You Make My Day" award by Nathalie at An Artist's Legacy. I must say that made my day! Go visit Nathalie's blog and see her art journal! Fun!!
And now for the fun part....I get to name the people I pass on the You Make My Day award to!!!!!!!!!! Drumroll please..........

We saw Juno yesterday and loved it also. I think is was perfectly cast...loved every character!

Hope school is going well and that you can get back to some serious stampin' soon.
