Forgive me for being a bit slower on this post this week. My husband had surgery this past week and I'm trying to catch up since I've been busy with him the last couple of days. He's so glad to be home after three days in the hospital. Now my work begins helping him and physical therapy begins to help him regain his strength. Things will be a bit hectic here for a while till he can get back to normal. It's hard to see your loved one in pain. God willing he will recoup soon? I thank all my close friends and church family for all your prayers for him. It meant a lot to both of us. Thank you!
This sweet little card is for my dear friends birthday, again this year. I made it for her and hope that she won't see this on my blog before her birthday? I'm taking a chance but, oh well?
I bought the Martha Stewart punch around the page called Swirling Lace. I went a bit crazy with it and made two outside layers and a round layer in the center to see if I could use the corner punch to make a round center. I succeeded. Yea!!! I also added lace, to two corners to help finish it off. I made two pretty stick pins with beads to add more bling, bling to it. The "Birthday Blessing" greeting is computer generated and cut it out with Spellbinders die cut called Shapeabilities Fancy Tags.
Here is a close up for you.
Previously on one of my posting I showed you my pillow box's that I made for small gifts. I think the pillow box matches the card quite quite a bit and will probably give that to her with the card, as well?
Lastly, I have entered this card into a challenge at Last But Not Least.
Wish me luck?
Thanks for peeking....and hope to have you back soon?
Oh yea...don't forget to leave me feedback. I love your comments!
