Butterfly Dreams Birthday Card

At the office: My boss's bosses came in to my office at an inopportune time, as I was checking crafty blogs with a mouthful of pad thai. "Tina, I lost my computer" and points at the laptop. "Uhh, maybe you should talk to IT?" (I didn't know what to does one lose his computer??) 15 minutes later, he accepted a calendar appointment that I sent him, so I was hoping that meant that he found his computer. I went down the hall to ask him about his computer and something unrelated. "Um, it was on my desk the whole time. It was in the corner, I just didn't see it." I did a "palm-to-forehead" smack in my head and moved onto other business. Sigh.

ATG gun refill order: I was on the hunt for some cheaper ATG gun refills, and on the Two Peas in a Bucket forum, some folks were talking about The Tape Depot. I went to their ebay store and purchased a set of 3 for $8.80 ($2.93 per roll) on Sunday and the order came today as estimated. So far I haven't seen a difference between these rolls and the 3M ones. While I'm pleased with this purchase, maybe it'd just be easier to use a coupon at Michaels or ACMoore so I don't have to wait.

Card: I'm SO glad that the refills came in because using liquid glue can get kinda messy. Anyway, moving on. Here's a card that I made last night after I uploaded last night's post. My goal was to use a butterfly stamp set that I won recently. I also wanted to use a rub-on from a set that was sitting on my desk and some ribbon because I have been neglecting my ribbon supply.
