Happy Birthday, Beverly!

Happy Birthday, Beverly! So I mailed this card earlier today, and I was debating on whether or not to post it until you received it in the mail, but I guess you see what won out! For the layout of the card, I used the Sketch This #94. It felt great to do a sketch challenge last night...instead of grading papers! hee!

Glad to hear you had a good day! A flat screen in your scraproom?! I am seriously jealous!! I have the 19" from Lori's brother's first marriage! lol! You deserve it, though, so glad your family knows it!

Now, here's a little story on getting old for you...a lunchtime conversation with one of my 2nd grade students:

Student: Miss Tieman, why are you so old?
Me: I just am. I've been alive a long time.
Student: (sighs)
Me: It's not so bad, it's better than the alternative.
Student: What do you mean?
Me: I'm still alive.
Student: Yeah,'s just that you have a white hair right here. (Proceeds to point to the top of my head.) Can I pull it?
Me: No.
Student: Please?
Me: No. (She's still thinking about it.) If you pull that hair, you're going to get a color change. (Student runs back to her chair.)

I'm laughing big-time, of course, and so is she. Good times, good times.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Birthday again, Beverly! Hugs and happy stamping!

Stamps: Mark the Date, Full Calendar
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, The Write Stuff & Tall Tales patterned paper.

You are too funny! Fortunately for you I got busy yesterday evening and didn't check your blog until this evening, after I opened today's mail! So the card was a surprise, both when I opened the mail and when I read your blog! Thank you so much for the birthday wishes!

I've heard of teachers pulling their hair out, but never of students offering to do it for them!!! ;D

Oh, the things kids will say!

Those kids keep you grounded don't they? hehehe.

Ooh - really love this one, Angie. Not a color combination you see everyday - but it really works! Love the layout - and the idea of using a calendar on the BD card. I'm taking notes...
