Happy Bday!

Hi Friends!

How are you doing today?  Getting those Christmas
preparations done?  I had to take a break from the
hustle and bustle and sit down to make a birthday
card for a girl I used to work with.  Three of us
girls still work together, but three have since gone
on to other jobs.  The one girl's birthday is on
Monday, and we are all meeting tonight for dinner.
We will have fun seeing each other again and get
caught up on what's going on in our lives.

I was going to make this card fairly simple, but I
kept adding here and there.  I started off with a
Bo Bunny sticker and adhered it to card board
for dimension.  I added the happy bday letter
stickers and gems.  I embossed the poinsettia
and oval circles.  Ribbon, buttons, and pearl
cotton to finish off the card. 

Well, I better scoot here.  Thank you for
dropping by today!  Take care, hugs!
