40 is a bitch!

Especially if you already are one.
I would know. I am both.
And now so is my dear friend Barb,
from the Haunted Design House!

Happy Birthday Barb!!!!!!

I have made you a little sumptin' sumptin'...

All of these delicious little gourds are on their way to you as
I type this. Thanks to a questionaire we replied to recently,
I was able to come up with a gift for Barb that incorporates two
of her favorite things, pumpkins and Steampunk. 
I give you my latest creation,
the "Steampunkins".
Kinda brilliant huh?
I have to thank Barb for the inspiration on these though.

So, enough about me, I'd like to say that Barb Foster
is an amazing artist, crafter, collector, and friend. I have plenty of
friends in real life, but feel as though I have really found a true
friend and sister in sickness(ie, Halloween, True Blood, wit, humour, etc.)
with Barb.
It's been almost a year that I have been a part of
the Haunted Design House DT, and even longer since I have
been inspired and coaxed out of my creative box by Barb and her
awesome Macabre Monday challenges. Fellow SBS DT member,
Jennifer is the one who sent me the link to Barb's blog, thinking
it was right up my alley. Man, was she ever spot on! Thanks Jennifer!
Here is the post with Jennifer's link and comment from Sept. '09.   
I think this post really endeared me to Barb though.
It's one of my favorite cards I ever made for MM.

Didn't I say enough about me?

Happy Birthday Barb!!!!!!
Big hug from the Glowbugg.
