A card share

I have a girlfriend who is also an Gemini, her birthday is the day after mine. So, I spent a couple hours today making her a card, thought I'd show it off here. Fairly simple, but a combo of cutting the doily and cups out using my Eclips (love, love, love that machine. Cuts like butter) And included some embossing and a bit of stamping, with a new glitter ribbon.
A word about the glitter ribbon, it sheds glitter, LOL, and it doesn't like the glue from the ATG gun. I had a terrible time making it stick to it.

The lace doily I do believe is one of's files, there are several in this kit, all of them are darling. So, here is how it turned out.

It's time for May's wallpaper

Ok, I know I'm a bit late this month, but there are just so many more things to do then sit here sometimes. I want to be everywhere else doing everything else. I am doing some jewelry and it's taking some time and thought. I am wanting to make my daughter a very special necklace for her birthday.
So, today we have May's wallpaper made from Amanda Thorderson's Wax Nostalgic . I promise it's way prettier then the name implies.
I do my wallpaper pretty simple, I like to be able to use my desktop, put things were I want them and keep whatever wallpaper is there as long as I want. So, while I did put a month on it, there is no calendar.
However, you can get a calendar by doing the Digitals calendar challenge each month.  Also, I use a neat little program called Rainlender, with an interactive calendar. It's easy to put your events in and will give you an alarm if you are like me and get lost on the computer.

For this month, the kit Wax Nostalgic is on sale also, so be sure to get there this month if you would like it.
So, without further ado, here is your wallpaper:
