Happy Birthday to my mother-in-law!

Today is my mother-in-law's birthday and above is the card that I made using Pink Cat Studio's Party Farm Animals stamp set. I accented an item in each square with Ranger's Stickles line so the animal would stand out just a little bit. I also thought it would be cool to make the card into a musical one by adding a sound "chip" inside the card (the sound chip was from a card I had received), so that when the card was opened she would hear the sounds of a pig. Apparently it was well appreciated because this morning, my husband received an email from his mom this morning to thank us for the card. She had written that she and my father-in-law had a really good laugh. I think it was a hit..... S;o)

My father celebrated his birthday this past week as well as his day was on Thursday. I ended up making an owl card for him using the same Pink Cat Studio set however I have sneak a couple of pictures of that card.
Tomorrow I finally return to work for the last 5 weeks of the 2008-09 school year and then I'm off for the summer again. At least the doctor is letting me return to work finally yet still no word on the specialist appointment :/

Well I'm off to do some household chores and then maybe time for a little stamping after that!
