My friend, Becky recently gave me this:
Thanks, Becky! I really like the cards and designs.
And I came upon this card, which I thought was super cute.
And I found out this morning that today is the birthday of a mom friend of mine at our school. Her kids and mine are good friends and we hang out for a bit after school most days, if the weather cooperates. She had never mentioned it was her birthday, a little bird told me. So, I ran out and got a little something, something for her and made this card:
I really wanted to do the accordion fold, well, I DID do the accordion fold piece, but I was running out of time and I couldn’t get the folds to stay down, so I had to come up with Plan B real quick, which was the scallop punch and circle with the button on top. I would have LOVED to have dressed this up more, but Wednesdays are early release days at the school and I literally had like 5 minutes before I had to leave to get to the school after trying to get that accordion piece to stay down.
My friend loved the card, whew! I used papers from DCWV’s Autumn Gathering stack and some kraft cardstock. I punched the butterfly with a Martha Stewart punch and used and a glue dot to put the butterfly onto a Making Memories stick pin. Happy Birthday is from Papertrey Ink.
My friend has been having a bit of a tough time recently and I’m so glad I was able to pull something together to bring a smile to her face.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are having a great week!
