Just A Note Card

My BFF Kimmy has had a successful week as guest designer on Peachy Keen Stamps!  I'm so proud of her focus and determination.  She can do whatever she puts to mind.  I made this card to express my appreciation for all her support with my paper crafting, blogging, and life's little details.  She's a wonderful friend that makes my day brighter every time I get the opportunity to pin her down long enough to have a conversation.  LOL!

Thank You Cards

My husband planned for 3 months and successfully gave me a surprise 50th birthday party.  My guests included old childhood and present friends, classmates from high school and college, a former supervisor, past and present co-workers, and of course family.  I have created a thank you card using a stamp of a hydrangea because that was the flower used as centerpieces on the tables.  The color of the flower on the card is the same color of the hydrangea and were absolutely gorgeous!  They were called antique hydrangea.  The beautiful pale olive green was speckled with small maroon spots.  I've never seen one like it.  Again, absolutely gorgeous !

As for my design, it was my intent to keep it classically simple.  I didn't want to take away from the purpose of the card - to Thank all my guests for making my 50th a memorable day.

Friend Birthday Card

My husband's secretary helped him pull off a surprise birthday party for me last Saturday.  I didn't know her birthday was 4 days after mine.  Ahead of all my thank you cards to my party guests, is a belated birthday card. Susan not only helped plan and organize my 50th bday party, but worked to keep the food table fully stocked for the 35 guests that attended.  I can never repay her for everything she did for me.  Making a card is the least I could do!

Baseball Birthday Card

Today is my son's 11th birthday.  That's really inconceivable.  I'm just saying.  Wow.  Here's my card for my baseball crazy son.  He's not alone though...we all love baseball.  He'll get the card when he comes home from school, and then get cupcakes after, you know, baseball practice!
