BC359: Birthday


Today over at Blogger's Challenge, our challenge "Mom" gave us the subject of birthday...I wonder why????

Oh, yeah, it's her birthday is tomorrow!  So join us in wishing Lisa a Happy Birthday and showing off those birthday creations for her.  I've had the privilege of calling Lisa my friend for years now and over them, we've discovered more and more we have in common...if only she lived closer (or I closer to her).

Hoping this card may have arrived in the mail to her by the time this goes live.  I've been horrid about sending friends birthday cards-I'm trying to build up my stash so I won't have to worry about creating for ever birthday that comes up.

I used the Operation Write Home sketch for this card, eliminating one of the flags to make the sentiment work.


Love the design of this card, but I especially love this sentiment.  Considering the first memory of Lisa & I was at a scrapper's retreat where everyone was fighting over some Eclair Cake, the sentiment seemed appropriate.

Lisa-Hope you have a fabulous birthday my friend!
