Happy Birthday!

Hi there!

How are things with you?  It was quite a change going back to work after
having had two weeks off for vacation.  But, I work with a great group of
gals, and we work as a great team.  One co-worker said to me, "I'm happy
to see that you are back again."  And she added, " I mean, I am really
really happy to see you again!"  Hehehe, we are teammies!  Barb and I
are alike in personality and just go to each other all the time to help
each other out.  So, it was nice hearing her say that sweet comment!

I seem to be gravitating towards green lately.  These colors are great
for a summer birthday card.  So, I thought how fun to enter the challenge
over at The Paper Players and have another birthday card on hand.  The
card is pretty self-explanatory.  And, no sewing or seam binding on
this card!  Huh?  Yep, that's right!  Well, I thank you for dropping by today!
Take care, hugs!

  1. What a perfect use of these colors, Maria! The little flowers are so sweet against the polka-dot background.

  2. I immediately had to think of the anniversary card you made recently. And this card is just a s gorgeous. I am also a bit "into" green:). The circles with the flowers are lovely and the idea of the sentiment on the side of your card is fab!
    Almost weekend; after the first week at work it's good to be home again:)

  3. Such a crisp, citrus, summery card! I love that little ribbon tab!
