Birthday mania!

Today is my birthday. And it's snowing here. (BOOOOOOOO!) So I decided to take the day off, which I can do, for if you recall, I am a substitute teacher. I just say "no" if someone calls, and I get the day off! Yippee!! I plan to spend the day in my sweatpants, stamping and making myself a birthday cake (which only slightly depresses me, but my hubby is too busy working to do so). I may even take a nap. And later I have an appointment to get my eyebrows waxed. Later tonight my friends and I are going out for Thai food and desserts. Yummmmm. To get me in the mood, I've decided to post my favorite birthday cards that I've made. They are my surrogate birthday cards until the mail comes today. November is a busy birthday month in my family, so I made these for other people, but they are still cute, and in the mood for today!!
