Happy Birthday!

Hello!! So we bought a new bed 2 1/2 months ago and thank goodness it allows you to return it within 90 days. And that is exactly what we did last night!  It is one of the hardest beds I have ever slept in. It is a Sealy posturepedic  latex foam bed. Don't buy it!!! It costs 2,500.00 for a king size bed. You ask what did that buy us? Tossing and turning all  night long, wake up feeling tired and in lots of pain.  So we are exchanging it for a tempur-pedic Supreme Cloud for an additional 1,200l. I cannot believe we are paying this much for a mattress!! However, I talked myself into it! Where do you spend 1/3 of your life? In bed! If you wake up hurting and a lousy sleeps night...your miserable day after day. It is warranty for 20.00 years and mite resistant. I read comments where people feel you are sleeping on a cloud and lets hope I do!! I suffer from severe insomnia and when I do sleep...I want to deep sleep and wake up with no pain!! KWIM! We are having it delivered next week and I will let you know how this one is! Maybe I can become the next Dear Heloise!

Today's card I had lots of fun making!! I used two Elisabeth Bell Stamps exclusively for SCACD.  On the right is Blowing Kisses, Spring Sampler Collection 2011 and Bubbles,  Sampler Edition 4. Don't they look so cute together!!

    Oh I just love how you combined these images into one super fun card! Thanks for playing along for fun with us at the SCACD Friends with Heart challenge!

    I know what you mean! My husband had a Queen size waterbed that I had to endure while pregnant and for many years to come, with leaks and all the rest. We stayed at Wondervu Mountain Lodge in Colorado to celebrate 10 year anniversary they had the best beds, exactly like you are saying like sleeping on a giant puffy cloud. I had to have one and by the end of our trip so did my hubby! Yay! Now we have a giant bed, pillow top, very pricey but I admit it it was worth it. My husband still had a few aches so we also added one of those memory foam cushions, and wow I sleep like a baby!! Some days I don't want to get up!
