Yesterday was my birthday. I celebrated it over lunch with 7 of my card class buddies, a dear friend, my granddaughter and great granddaughter (see photo below). I received such an array of gorgeous handmade cards. I give thanks for each and every one of these wonderful friends. I am also thankful that little 8 month old Laila did not cry all the way home after crying all the way there
(a 45 minute ride which seemed like an eternity).
The stamps I used for this card are all CTMH, the embossing folder is one I forgot I had, and the spritz of gold is Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist.
