Birthday Card for a Special Friend


This birthday card is for a good friend of mine who has been having cancer treatments for several months. I wanted it to be bright and cheerful.
I used Martha Stewart's Heart Lace Border Punch, Spellbinders Fancy Tag, Labels 9 (from Joan's Gardens) and a stamp that I bought at a stamp show because I loved it so much. I have added a bow using May Arts silk ribbon. I tied the pretty bow with the Bow Easy tha I purchased from Sharon Johnson. The edges were sponged before I took the stamped image out of the Nesties on both the tag and the hats. That sure changes the appearance. A pretty glitzy rhinestone was added for more interest.
My computer had to go to the hospital yesterday (my power supply died) so I was not able to ship any orders and today is a holiday and there is no mail. But, rest assured if you placed an order in the last couple of days it will ship tomorrow.
I am doing a craft show at the Newton Center in Lakeville, Indiana this weekend, so you probably won't be hearing from me. If you live in the area and can attend, be sure to look me up. I will be in the Library room.
