Happy Birthday Timbo!

Today the artist who created some of my favorite stamp images is celebrating a birthday!! Timbo is the illustrator for Hambo Stamps, perhaps you've heard me mention them before? ;-) You can see some of his wonderful drawings here (I hope that link works for you, it's his PCP page). I hope you're having a very happy birthday, Tim!!! I'm sorry but I don't love the birthday card I created for you. Yesterday was a really difficult day with the kiddos, and by the time I sat down to stamp last night, my mojo was MIA and I was about ready to fall asleep in my ink pad. So this was the best I could come up with. :-( I played along with two challenges for this - this past week's sketch on Splitcoast (SC201), and Kristina Werner's last color challenge (CI29). I thought I'd love the colors, but turns out I don't - I think I probably used too much orange. *sigh* Anyway - hopefully it's the thought that counts! The good news is that I actually gave in to my body and went to sleep at a semi-decent hour last night (~10:30), and Courtney actually slept through until 5am!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That NEVER happens. She is typically up to nurse at around midnight and again at 4am. And after her 5am feeding, she went back to sleep until 8am, which is when I go up!!! Daddy got up early with Carter (who also "slept in" - today he slept alllll the way until 5:45 instead of the 5:20 he'd been doing all this week! Ack!). So anyway - I'm so well-rested now, I don't know what to do with myself. Since I have all this extra energy, I'll probably stay up until 2am stamping tonight....! (and so it begins again...) Hope you are all having a great weekend!!
  • Stamps: Hot Air Balloon & Carried Away from Hambo Stamps
  • Paper: Pacific Point, Taken with Teal, White, SU DP (Halloween papers, forget the name...)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics for coloring
  • Accessories: Starry Night Stickles, blue brads, Hobby Lobby ribbon
By the way - both stamps I used today are included in the BOGO sale over at Hambo!! Buy the balloon, get the sentiment free!!! Woohoo!


  1. I like your card, Libby, and I've always liked a blue and orange color combo so I guess I like it double! It makes a great guy BD card. It feels good to be rested, doesn't it? I'm usually up till 11:30 and, unfortunately, sometimes midnight, and the alarm goes off at 6:00 so I can be at work all day. Not good! There are never enough hours in a day.

  2. Beautiful Card! I love the colors. Glad to hear that you got some sleep. I remember the days when I would get an extra hour of sleep and thought I won the lottery. LOL!

  3. Thanks Libby for the birthday wishes! I'm having a super day, I even got to eat pork for lunch.

  4. Congratulations on the extra sleep! That is fantastic. I like the card. You are too hard on yourself.

  5. Laura's right - you're way too hard on yourself. The card is great, and I know for a fact that it was appreciated! :)


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
