We'd been to the Mall of America. Shopped a bit, and while the lovely Ardyth was in the changing room, the rest of us gathered here. That's Kim in the darling orange jacket, the birthday girl in the blue shirt, the presently-traveling-to-England Miss Darnell, and the ever sweet Anita. Yours truly is obviously shooting the video... Isn't she just fun??!!! Gotta love this girl!!! I crack up every time I see this! Gee I hope this worked! Surprise Geri!!! Hahahahaha
Her birthday card looks like this:
Mostly CAS. Can't find the 6x6 tablet where this patterned paper came from; but it does add a bit of fun to this card. The stamps are NBUS (and golly!, I've been online stress shopping as of late) by Altenew. Great alphabet! A chunk o' twine, and done. I hope she liked it!
Well Geri, you didn't get a "party" on my blog this year. Things have been slightly busier around here lately, but I wanted to let you know that I'm thinking of you. I hope you get to spend your birthday doing fun things, and having your favorite dinner, which you didn't have to make. It's been a joy to know you, and you hold a very special place in my heart. So have a wonderful birthday, and may God bless you richly in this coming year. xoxo
It also happened to be Becca Cruger's birthday last week. DH has kept me hopping, so I haven't been able to get posts done appropriately, so Becca, I'm offering my most sincere apologies for that. I did make a card, and I'm fairly certain it arrived safely a day or two ago. She turned the big "Three-Oh" which is a wonderful age! I loved my thirties and I know she will too! Happy Birthday, Becca!! From FB, it looks like you celebrated in style, and I hope it continues throughout the year!! Happy Birthday! Do stop by her blog and leave her some HB wishes; it's at The Damsel of Distressed (isn't that just a fun blog name?!!)
She'd put up a mood board on her blog, and we could see what we could see and make what we could make. For some reason, my brain saw people loving life, and the soft colors amidst the vivid ones. There's no predicting where my mind goes....
Sending birthday love. LF, MFT, RC dies. PTI sentiment. And several kinds of patterned paper. The card Becca hopefully received, has some yellow blings added to it too. I'd forgotten to put them on before I took the photo (I'm such a knob!). I hope she like this.
And lastly, there's been another family birthday. Well...truth be told, there are always birthdays happening in my family, lol! This one went to grandson Michael. It has a nice masculine look. I used the sketch from CTS and kept it very CAS.
That's an AE stamp behind the shield, which set if off perfectly in my eyes. Scraps of black and gray, a SSS sentiment, a WPlus9 banner die, and that's it. I used a cut file from Silhouette to make the shield. EZPZ.
And that's it. Happy birthday once again to Geri, and to Becca. Wouldn't it be fun if we ALL could celebrate birthdays together??!! Gotta win that lottery so we can, lol!! Happy dances everyone.
