Birthday Wishes

Happy Thursday!

Are you ready for the new year?   I'm ready for a fresh start!

This year, I'm going to try to pop the cards into their envelopes and address them, writing their "send" date in the upper right hand corner where the postage stamp will later be!   Such an original idea, huh?  lol

Sentiment is CG (computer generated)
Papers: sei dp (black orchid)
Other: Kaisercraft gems, 
Hand-dyed seam binding by MDuffek

I have had this paper forevahh, found it in the back of my pile.  The stack is filled with bright & lively colors, you'll be seeing more of it here soon!

 Enjoy your Thursday!

Your card is gorgeous Maria. I absolutely love it.

And I think your idea of putting the cards into envelopes and addressing them is a wonderful idea. I might just need to do that as well. If I can get that organized, that is.

Blessings to you and your family for a wonderful New Years holiday.

What a lovely card! I love it when people use DP as the main focal point of the card. Most DP is so pretty, you hate to cover it up with an image! Love the ribbon treatment too!

Yes, I can make the cards easily but then it is harder for me to get them mailed out. I need to work on that.

Glad you brought out that wonderful paper...just beautiful! And, I LOVE that ribbon.

Thanks for joining the Stampin B's this week with your 'celebrate' card. It's gorgeous.
