It's even MY birthday month, and August belongs to my daughter Emily and my brother Ed, too.
So happy birthday to US!
I've been spending a lot of time creating unique birthday cards for my friends. This means extra time and love spent. A few postings ago, I showed you a pocket card I made for my friend Joan; the pocket included a lengthy note I wrote to play "catch-up" with a friend I hadn't seen in too long of a time.
The thicker "envelope card" here is for another dear friend. This friend inspires me in my paper crafting; she's been into it longer than I have, but she has so much patience that she had been cutting her own images -- "fussy cutting" -- until I introduced her to Cricut. Now we share this craft, so I wanted to make her a special card.
It didn't need to include space for a lengthy note ... we see each other regularly (though never often enough!). I wanted to give her a gift of some of the flowers I've been making. I am hoping that the inside Calla lilies don't get crushed in the mail ... it's our experiment with USPS.
This card drops in the mail tomorrow. So dear friend -- and you know who you are (and you're a blog reader!) -- may you be blessed with as much joy as you've given me throughout our 31 year friendship! I love you.
