I have two very dear friends who have been with me through thick and thin, good and bad, for 23 years. When I was younger, I never thought I'd have "true" friends, but I can say that when we arrived in North Carolina, I found true friends. They are like sisters to me, and I adore them. One of them turned 50 last week, and this is the card I made for her. She loves brown, and although it is not the first color I would choose for a card, I really like this card. I have entered this card into the current challenge over at Birthday Sundaes. Check it out!
Here are the details:
Size: 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Card Stock: Recollections and Bazzill
Bottom Border: EK Success border punch
Patterned papers: My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found) and The Paper Studio. (I purchased them at Hobby Lobby last week.)
Brown ribbon: Hobby Lobby -- brand unknown
Lace: From my stash
Old Age font: Twinkle Toes Sizzlet font
Label: Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge with a Nestabilities circle die used for the top layer
Photo corner: Cuttlebug die
Pearls: Queen & Co.
Yarn flower: Recollections -- I added a pearl to the center.
The inside says, "It's like underwear that just keeps on creeping up on ya. Happy birthday!" HA! HA!

P.S. If you've been following my husband's ankle dilemma, he will be seeing a surgeon on Monday. Hopefully it will be fixed soon, and the healing can begin. Thanks for your prayers for him!
