Good morning!  Well, I’ve survived another birthday!!  The day after is always a little sad when my sidebar “Countdown to St. Patrick’s Day” resets itself to 365.  But I’ve got more surprises coming in the mail and am off this week so the celebrating will continue!  Today’s card is inspired by this week’s Moxie Fab World’s Tuesday Trigger photo…

Simple Elegance

How delicious is this room?  I was inspired by the colours and pattern and the medallion/doily shape over the fireplace.  Hope your weekend is going well and there are not too many green beer hangovers!! ACK!  If you haven’t seen my Blog Candy post, click HERE to enter!!  Thanks for all the birthday wishes yesterday!!  You are all too sweet :)

Just think, Diva: that countdown bar said 366 days this time last year so we're already a day closer than last March 18th thanks to this leap year! LOL!
Oh how I love those harvest berries (and the buttons posing as the berries - gorgeous!) Fabulous take on the trigger, Diva!
Enjoy your week off (is that like spring break over there? or have you managed to book a week of work for your birthday celebrations? Hee!)

Love that ginko leaf and the cute little tag. Glad you had a good birthday and may the celebrations continue throughout the next week! Have a great Sunday. We're off to a funeral of an amazing man today... bringing lots of Kleenex...

Good morning Miss Maureen. I don't even know where to begin on this card. It is STUNNING! I mean STUNNING! The gorgeous damask with the slightly distressed edges...the berries and the touch of pink. Love...

And I would love to have this house in my room, but I don't think the colors would be quite practical with my house of boys :)

Hope you had a wonderful birthday, my friend! This little number is just as pretty as can be. Love the button "berries" , and that background dp looks like fabric! So beautiful!

More surprises in the mail?! Yes you do. Because I'm always late when it comes to your birthday - even with the best of intentions. LOL! I hope you did have a fabulous birthday!

I saw this card and groaned....I love it, but it reminded me of my 'dunce' moment. I ordered this stamp set - and forgot the die! DUH! Guess what's going on my next order!? HAHA

Gorgeous card! Those papers are lovely and the buttons...yum!
