Happy Birthday Joyce and Cindy!

What a lovely day I had today.  Cindy and Joyce, 2 dear friends, were both celebrating birthdays  so we went to Shady Maple Smorgasbord for lunch (the birthdays gals got to eat for free) followed by a little side trip to Farmhouse Memories to see the fabulous line of scrapbooking and stamping supplies carried there.  We ooohed and aaahed  over the gorgeous fabrics and all the sample cards made using them.  I am so happy I got to share their special day with them.  Would you like to see the cards I made them?  
Joyce's card is a triple easel card.  I found the tutorial for it here.  I don't know which was harder- making the card or trying to photograph it.  I took several photos from various angles so you could get a good idea of how it looks.
This is the card folded up
and here it is opened.

Largest easel in back (4.5")

Center easel 4"

Front easel 3.5"

I'll post Cindy's card tomorrow.
