Celebrate - Birthday or New Job

Hello friends!  Just finished a card that has been rolling around in my head for a few days - take a look :o)
Stamp: from "Hey Hot Stuff" - Kraftin' Kimmy

Isn't she a lovely lady?  I started down the path of making this a birthday card but then decided that it might also make a great congratulations on your new job card.  I have two friends that this will work for nicely.   
I guess I'll see which occasion comes up first  before putting a message on the inside :o).  
Still practicing my copic coloring skills with skin and hair and am pleased with how this turned out.  

My own birthday is coming up next week - the big "49" - eek!  I'm not exactly sure how I got to this age so fast. Sometimes I feel a lot younger (mentally) and sometimes I feel a lot older (physically) - LOL.  My sister and brother-in-law took me and my DH out to dinner tonight at my very favorite restaurant.  We had a really great evening and I ate wayyyy more than I should have. So...I'm sitting up and waiting until my stomach doesn't feel like I swallowed a bowling ball before climbing into my bed.  I have really weird dreams if I go to bed with an over-full tummy (or after drinking wine too late).  Does that happen to you too?  
Doesn't seem to bother DH - I can hear him down the hall snoring to beat the band :o) 

Anyhoo...I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Always Playing with Paper - The Challenge #3 where I got this great design for my card
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #188 - Color a Stamped Image (digital or rubber)
Divas by Design - Anything Goes

Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
