Birthdays :)


 I DID make a card this last week!! :) This was one for Christy. She turned 36 years old on the 11th of this month. It amazes me how fast our kids can grow into adults!! :) I made the card from a background paper from Just So Scrappy's Make a Wish kit.(link to her blog in my sidebar). I used decorative scissors to cut around the edges of white card stock paper and then used Dye Based ink from Craft Smart to add color to the edges.The color is Brick Red. The ribbon on the front of the card is from Michael's Craft Store.It's Wrights Prestige Ribbon. The card went together pretty quickly and Whew..was I happy to have the time to decorate TWO cakes for that evening. Jim had turned "60" on the 9th and I was sick ..so we weren't able to do much celebrating.Christy told me on her birthday..that she wanted to share her birthday with Dad. Isn't that SWEET of her? :) Well..I had bought two cake mixes and extra icing for decorating a big cake for her since we were inviting several members of our family to help celebrate it with her. When she told me that she wanted to share her birthday I just made two cakes pretty much the same way as this one and put Happy 60th Birthday on one and Happy Birthday Christy with a couple of candles.3&6.:) We had a great time too.
  Hope you will excuse the dullness of the pics.I didn't have the time to correct them if I wanted to actually do a post again.LOL

  Thanks so much for stopping in and please don't forget to say Hi before you leave.:)

Hugs,
Valinda

Oh I am getting old. Don;t remember even if I did sent birthday wishes for Jim and Christy! Isn;t that aweful?? I know Jim is having his close to mine, but I lost it completely LOL!
Will chat another time a bit more, cause I am already a bit late today, still have to make a post and also have to catch up some blogs too. Ghee, how busy one can be, grin grin!
Have a wonderful weekend, my friend.
