Magical Monday - Sketch Challenge & turning 50!

This week over at the Paper Cupcakes Challenge Blog Patti Painter brings us this weeks challenge which was a great sketch. I love sketches and should use them more often. I used the image "Text Me; Hugs & Kisses" by Paper Cupcakes. I colored it with my Bic Mark-its. I also used some borders that my mom punched out of some of her Martha Stewart punches as well as my Fiskers punch. I used my white Signo pen by Uni-ball. Which I might add that I love love love and if you have never had a white pen I would highly suggest you buy this one. I love to doodle with it. The rest I think you can figure out.

I also hit a milestone in my life and turned the big "50"! It really doesn't bother me much, mainly because I feel so blessed and look at it as only a number. I don't have to worry about such silly things I have no control over such as age. Eric brought me home 50+ roses on Friday when he arrived home from work. They were just beautiful and they started to open up and so I thought I would share a picture of them with you. Aren't the divine?

Saturday, which was my actual birthday we got up early and helped my sister move all day up until about 4:00PM. It was a rainly drizzly day to move, but for the most part it was good. I spent time with my family and also got to eat birthday pizza during the move. We left from her new destination and headed downtown where Eric booked us a room for the night at the Hyatt. We cleaned up and then headed out to Capital Grill for a yummy and fancy dinner. We then went back and changed into something more comfortable and then headed back out to our favorite dance spot Ike & Jonesys to dance the night away and then came back to our room and crashed! Slept in and then we ate lunch at Panaro Bread before heading back home. I must say I had an awesome birthday. It was a wonderful way to bring in my 50's. I have to laugh though on Friday in the mail I received "TWO" AARP cards that I tossed in the trash. I always use to give Eric a hard time every time he received that mail, now I am getting it. Then I also received an assisted living brochure! OK... I am only 50, although I guess I could use a little more assistance around here!! LOL....

Well, needless to say I am tired today and I will be heading for bed shortly after 10:00PM this evening. I am sure I will crash.

So, to anyone that stops by tell me what you think of my card or just drop me a hi and tell me you stopped by; I love to hear from y'all! Make it a joyful day!
