Birthday Wishes


Good morning!! Today’s card is for my very special friend who is having a birthday on Friday.  She is the friend who came to do clay angels with my class a few weeks ago :)  I will see her bright and early tomorrow for breakfast and will give it to her then.  We are meeting at our city’s Annual Breakfast for Kids event.  You bring an unwrapped gift and stay for a free breakfast…it’s so fun, there’s music and friends and a local radio station…it really gets me in the Christmas spirit.  We go at 6:00 am!!! If you want a table right away, you have to go early…usually when we leave at 7, there is a big line up and I have to be at work by 8:00 at the latest.  So it’s the one early morning of the year and I love it (reminds me of Jake’s early morning hockey games!).  This card is inspired by Nina Brackett, the new Muse over at the CASE Study challenge blog.  I was inspired by her colours, seam binding, lace trim, stitching and overall vintage feel.


I could have gone for an ornament on my card, but it is for a birthday.  Even though the colours are traditional Christmas colours, I think they work for a before Christmas birthday :)  Thanks for visiting…I really do appreciate you spending a little time of your day here…smiles to where you are!!
