~Best Birthday Wishes~

This week we take a time out from holiday cards and crafting to bring you a few birthdays!  My #2 son celebrated his 31st on Friday.  This coming Thursday is hubby’s birthday (this is his card).  I have a niece celebrating a birthday on Thursday, as well.  My first granddaughter is turning the big ONE in a couple weeks, too!

I am on the tail end of a pretty nasty flu.  I did 12+ days doing absolutely nothing.  Now my “to do” list is ungodly.  I can’t even cut things out as they mostly involve Christmas (wrapping, cooking, baking, sending cards!).  Some friends and relatives may get their cards a wee bit late!


Want to hear the sweetest thing ever?  I’ve been making cards for 16 or 17 years.  My hubby has kept every card I’ve made for him.  Dawww!


Hubby is a Navy Veteran, so this Seafarer paper by Authentique is absolutely perfect for him!
