Interesting Birthday

SCROLL DOWN TO THE END OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE

Hello hello!

Thank you very much for the birthday wishes everyone! I had an interesting birthday yesterday. Started off with this big BIG eagle coming out of nowhere and bumping right into me. BUMPED, literally! My friend says it was a Kite and I am like, whatever it was but the bugger was HUGE! The winds have been really rough since a couple of days and yesterday they were ridiculously strong so I am guessing that must be the reason behind the bird’s fall. And then this BIG piece of hard plastic scrap came flying out of the sky and landed a feet from where I was standing! Broke a couple of flower pots with the force it hit. This is not it, there is a lizard in this story too! lol A nasty lizard fell off (god knows from where) right in front of my feet! I heard the sound of it hitting the tiled floor…. phichaaak hahahaha… After this I just looked up at the sky and asked God; Freaky much? I hope you don’t have anymore surprises up your sleeve lol

I have a very simple and quick card for you today. I wanted to enter this for the “Less is More” thanks/congratulations challenge but I don’t think it qualifies as ‘less is more’.

Nothing much to say about this card. The teal layer was a scrap piece lying around so I picked it up, embossed it and then inked it up. Looked good to me so thought I’d just make a simple card that will show off the design I love the texture on this and the grungy look.

Thank you again for the emails and comments.

Oh that was some freaky friday (well monday but lets leave it aside). Thank your stars the lizard didn't fall on your head..and when something falls near your feet, you don't look up..what if its partner fell on your face..eeeewwww!! I hate hate lizards..
What's wrong with the kite? blind or something? I felt like laughing, but didn't coz it hurt you!! Maybe that bang would have restored your vertigo problem!! did it? hehe!
p.s. love the teal color CS...stay well..and keep out of trouble!
