Happy Birthday!

Hi, there!

It's been a little over a week since I've posted.  I've been pretty busy with my 60th birthday celebration and Thanksgiving festivities.  I hope you had a wonderful blessed Thanksgiving with your family!

I've been working on December birthday cards for friends and family.  And, today I'm sharing with you the one that I made for my sister's birthday.  I'm entering this card over at Fusion Card Challenge.

I started with a white card base and paired it with MME paper, which was die cut using a Mama Elephant die.  The poinsettia die is from MFT.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.  Gems and ribbon to finish the card.

I thought I'd add just a couple of photos of my birthday celebration with my sisters.  My birthday weekend a couple weeks ago was spent in Amish Country...Berlin, Ohio with my hubby.  We had a great time shopping and eating delicious food.  And, so last weekend my sister, Donna, hosted a party at her house.  Lots of fun and a wonderful time with my four sisters.

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care and
have a wonderful weekend!
