Punches to the rescue!!!

Have you ever known that someone's birthday was coming up, but it never dawned on you that it was 2 days away and it takes two days by mail for a card to get there?  That's what happened to me on Thursday morning.  At 7:40 a.m., I realized that my sweet sister-in-law was having a birthday on Saturday.  I literally ran to the scrapbook room and made this card in 20 minutes.  Thank goodness for my punches!  They are so quick and easy, and that is why I love them so much!  I embossed the entire card on this one, added the punched hearts (thanks Martha Stewart), added a couple of flowers, punched a sentiment, and was done!  Quick and easy, but done with love!  The inside says, "for a special sister.  Happy Birthday!"

Hope you like it.  Click on the photo, and hopefully you can see the embossing then.
