Jinx and Happy Birthday, Friend

I think I jinxed myself. I finally got back on the creating (and blogging) train but I made the mistake of announcing this publicly and shortly thereafter my computer died. It *had* to. I mean, I said it out loud! What was I thinking?! It lasted almost 10 years to the day so I guess I really shouldn't complain but boy is it a pain shopping for a new computer.  It took a while but I finally settled on one and I hope I'm back for good this time. Well, at least for another 10 years. Oh crud. I said that out loud, didn't I? I hope the evil computer spirits aren't listening...

Let's get on with the show, shall we?

So back in August my very good friend had a birthday. I know she has been pining over this Mosaic Madness stamp set so I just *had* to use it for her card. I think it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself. I got to use the new Strawberry Slush In Color which I love as well as the new gray - Smoky Slate - which I really love. Who doesn't love pink and gray? I am so happy that Stampin' Up! finally introduced a lighter gray. I like the darker  Basic Gray a lot but sometimes you just need something a little lighter and Smoky Slate fits the bill. And I'm always looking for an excuse to use pink. Yes, I'm one of "those" girls although I didn't use to be. But I digress.
