I made this card last week for my dear friend, customer & "temporary beach house neighbor", Judy. Judy tagged along with a friend to my stamp class about 7 months ago. She reminded me so much of my mom and we became friends right away. Then one day I was outside with the boys and I noticed a new family moving in to the beach rental next door. It was Judy's daughter! Judy spent 4 days out of the week babysitting her grandkids and we would hang out in the driveway while the boys rode their bikes and drew with chalk. Of course we talked stamps! I'm happy to have her as a friend!
So since I wanted to wait to post this until she actually got her birthday card (her birthday is today!) I was happy to see that the new challenge over at the Global Design Project site is "celebrate". I haven't played along in awhile because of our move, but I couldn't resist this fun theme. Heck, I might play twice.
I'm loving this new set called "Number Of Years. It comes with matching framelits which makes cutting the numbers out a breeze.
It's been rainy here lately and I haven't been getting good indoor pictures. I wish you could see this card in person. The sentiment says "The number of years the world has been a better place because you're in it." - Cute, right??
A little lace doily, a Watermelon Wonder flower, twine... and oh yeah, that pretty sparkly Pool Party ribbon you see? - that'll be available Jan 5th too! So many awesome products coming out soon!
I sure hope you like this card Ms. Judy - we miss you so!
And for the rest of you... thanks for stopping by! Head on over to the GDP site and see all of the other fantastic celebration ideas!
