Birthday Card


February 27, 2014      

I'm back!  I have been busy making cards the last couple of weeks.  Today I am showing one of the birthday cards that I completed.  The stamp set I used is "People like You".  It is a beautiful stamp set and is easy to emboss.

Here is the card I made.  It is cheerful and bright.

Valentine's Day

Well, Valentine's Day has come and gone but I wanted to share some cards from my friends.  We meet on Monday nights and make cards for all occasions.

This is a Pop-up box card made by Betty Lee and it is what I call a "Wow" card.  It lays flat in the envelope and then when you open it and put the side flaps down the inside of the card with all the embellishments pop up.  It is a beautiful way to surprise someone.

This is the second card and it is from Phyllis.  It is very beautiful with lots of shine and glitter, which I love.

As you can see the cards are beautiful.   We had a sunny day in Vernon and I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers from my husband, Ken.  That was such a wonderful surprise.  Also received a beautiful Valentine card from him.  We went to Rutland, (outside of Kelowna) to a Dinner and a dance at the Army and Navy Club.  We danced quite a bit to our favorite band "Art Taylor" and had lots of fun with our friends from Winfield,(Sonyia and Ed).  We left the dance around 11:00pm and then went back to Sonyia and Ed's for a night cap and some appetizer's.   Drove back to Vernon around 12:30am with a beautiful, bright full moon and a clear sky.
Have a lovely day everyone!  Catch you next time.......Will have some recent Birthday cards to show.   And of course tonight is Card Night and Betty Lee is going to show us how to make the Pop-Up Box Card.
