I made these cards for my sister, who is turning 50 next weekend. She and I are very close, although we live 3 1/2 hours apart. I won't get to spend her birthday with her, but I will be there in spirit. I hope she likes her cards. One is a serious card, and the other a funny Maxine card. When we were little, I could never pronounce her name (Susan). My parents told her she was a baby, and I came up with the name "Bae." I can remember sitting in church and saying, "Can I call you Sue?" She of course said "NO!" So, I told her, "Well, I'll just have to call you Bae then." When my first daughter was born, she became Bae all over again. Both of my girls call her Bae, and they are 26 and 20! I decided to use her nickname on her card, since it is a funny card. I think she'll get a kick out of it.
I made this card yesterday, and it was so fun! My friend Lesa is turning 40, and I wanted to make a funny card for her, but not an over the hill card. She has a sarcastic sense of humor, kind of like Maxine, so I searched the internet and found this picture and saying by Maxine. It was perfect for Lesa's card!
