The birthday card was for the mother of a dear friend - I grew up on the same street and she was one of my mother's special friends. Her daughter has been a dear friend since we were both three years old - and we are both well beyond that now! I spent many of my childhood hours/days/months at her home - I was an only child so life with a family of five brothers and sisters was much more exciting! I wanted to live there. We seem to want what we don't have, especially when we are young, and realize many years later just how lucky we were to have exactly what we needed...... I guess that is what
So here is the card for my dear friend's mother. In later years, I have called myself the adopted daughter since I was always hanging around there - whether or not they wanted me to! She celebrated her 88th birthday and that is such a joyous occasion.
This is spirella that I have not done in a while - it's addicting.
The ribbon is really purple, it just isn't showing well in this photo.
All of these beautiful colors are from the PopTone collection at Paper Temptress.
This was fun to do and was easy to trace with the SCAL software.
Each of the cards is quite different, but it was gratifying to push myself creatively and try some new things, while reaching out to special people to let them know I care...
