Need to find

My MOJO!! DD's bd was July 10th - I have started her card but have not finished it. My BIL's bd was July 17th and I have not made him his golf card yet. My sister's bd was July 27th and I still need to send her the card I made a long time ago. When I made the card, I had no idea who I would be sending it to, but have decided to send it to my sister.

I have 2 sisters-in-law who will be celebrating their 60th birthdays this coming week. I will be turning 60 tomorrow. My sister-in-law Jan, will be 60 on Monday and my other sister-in-law Claire will be 60 on Tuesday. I'm not sure how Jan and Claire feel about turning 60, but I for one intend to enjoy this year. My co-workers gathered around my desk today right after lunch and sang happy birthday to me today and gave me a lovely card that they all signed. They also got me a carrot loaf cake complete with candles.

I got some happy mail today from my blogging buddy Stef - she sent me a birthday card along with a few goodies that I can use to embellish cards I make. I love the sentiment she stamped inside: "It's not the years in your life, but the life in your years that count." How true!
I can't take a pic of the card as it is in the car and DH has gone out with the car. I will take a picture of it tomorrow and will hopefully be able to post it on my blog then.

I leave for London Ontario on Sunday after lunch to spend some time with my BFF Jeanine whose daughter is expecting her 1st child any day now. I will be going to a baby shower for Jeanine's daughter on Sunday evening with Jeanine so I need to get off this computer and make a card for her baby. On my lunch hour today, I went to my local LSS and bought some baby paper and a stamp as I had nothing in my stash to make a baby card. I will get off this computer soon and make that card and will post a picture of it later.

Thanks for stopping by! TGIF!!

Sheesh that is a lot of birthdays. I would suggest keeping all the cakes away from each other. Too many candles for one place. LOL!!

Happy Birthday!! I hope your day is full of joy and many blessings.

I turn 50 this month, and have to say I am actually looking forward to it.

Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog!

You'll find your mojo, I'm sure of it. I think I've lost mine too ~ but looking at your blog I think is helping! Lots of great stuff here, very inspiring!

Hi Oma:
I know exactly how you feel, losing your MOJO. It's not a nice feeling especially when you have a lot of cards to make. The month of July is my busiest month but I got through it........phew! If it helps, I tend to make the same card but in different colours. You can see 3 birthday cards on my blog made with (Fred, She Said) digital flowers and my Cuttlebug (they are fairly quick and pretty). If the cards are going to folk that don't really know one another, it doesn't matter if they are similar. If I can be of help in any way, please let me know.
