Sweet Birthday Card

Hi! How are you this fine Thursday? Are you looking forward to the weekend? I keep forgetting today is Thursday because my hubby took yesterday off and we went to pick strawberries. So all day I kept thinking it was Saturday! Funny how something like that can mess with your internal calendar!

Well, since I was out playing yesterday, I didn't have a project to share with you today! And I felt bad! Can you believe it!?!? So I've been playing this morning just to make you something! I hope you like!

Since I'm on a roll with birthday cards here's another! ;)

I got to play with some new goodies I've been buying lately...the 5 & Dime

line from October Afternoon, the Basics

from Basic Grey and my new flower die cut from My Favorite Things. Love how you can easily make fabulous looking flowers with felt!

This yummy little desert menu came from one of the 5 & Dime papers. I thought that adorable slice of cake would be perfect for a birthday card.  The die cuts that I framed the menu with are Spellbinders

. Those die cuts always get a work out in my office!

The sentiment was created with a Papertrey Ink stamp from the Tiny Treats Birthday set and the scalloped boarders were made with a Fiskars

border punch.

There you have it...a crafty good share for the day!

Oh, and before I wrap up this post I'd like to share a picture of Christopher picking strawberries yesterday.

We picked two five pound buckets of these beautiful, red, sweet and delicious berries! Life is good! And sweet! Have yourself a beautiful day! :) Kathy

Love the card, Kathy! That paper line is just beautiful and I love what you've done with it. Love that felt flower, too.
Awesome photo of Christopher. I bet it was a beautiful day at the strawberry fields. :)

There’s always something special about receiving a homemade gift from someone. Giving this type of gift emphasizes the fact that indeed, “It’s the thought that counts.” And these thoughts will cause the gift-receiver to smile or chuckle! If the gift recipient is nearing retirement, some excellent options include a mini retirement fund (a penny in a baby food jar), or a DIY cane. As with any other type of gag gift, make sure to select the present that you give carefully.
