Happy Birthday!
I had another birthday card to do...this time was for my friend-girl. Creatively, I hit a mental road block. I didn't know what I was going to do. I had more freedom than I did with the previous two cards I did, because my audience was female.

I still couldn't get the creative juices flowing. I even had my hubby giving me ideas and he had some pretty good ones that I'll use at a later date. His ideas were more involved & time intensive and I had little time to produce (like it was the night before and 3-4 hours before my bed time). Of course, my time limit was my own fault because I am a terrible procrastinator. I'm working on it... :) Anyway, without further ado - here's my creation for my friend-girl...

The mental anguish (I exaggerate just a tad bit for some drama) was worth the effort, because she was quite happy with the card. BTW - this card was given to her on time. It was only given to her the day after her b-day because I didn't see her yesterday. Just in case you were wondering.

'til I craft again or have something to say...

I gotta say that I love this card. But I could be a bit biased since it was created just for ME! I love the embossing; quite fancy looking. Thanks so much for the beautiful card. You have a special gift! Thanks again...you totally rock.
