65th Birthday

Had fun with this one. It was the pretty-not-so-pink pinkpaisley paper that got me inspired and ready to go. From there it was just some stampin, sewin & spellbindin! I really like how this one turned out and I don't say that often (we're so critical of our own work, eh?)

I also did the inside, which I'm just starting to try doing lately. It's not fancy, but it did give it more of a finished look for me. Great way to use up those scraps of DP as well.

What an awesome beautiful sunny Friday it is here in Kingston!! Have a great weekend everyone.

I agree - this is a very special card!! Love the way you did the inside too. You have such an eye for what will look wonderful together - your layering always blows me away :)

Good to hear you have lovely weather over there. I am watching the weather channel with concern - there's a cyclone in the North where my Mom, Sis and Daughter all are. It isn't too strong yet and I'm praying it will just stay as a rain depression. They are used to floods without the destructive winds.

Off to organise a scrappy morning with a gf!! Enjoy your day too :)

Absolutely gorgeous, Carla! And I LOVE the inside! I never think to use shapes like that there. I'll have to try that. :)
