Happy Birthday and Serenity Prayer




In addition to Ryan's prom, I had a 50th birthday party to attend for one of my dear friends, Candice. Instead of a 50 card, I made her a traditional card. She likes to craft too so I know she'll appreciate the card.  We had a great time celebrating her...and best of all she was surprised. Love that her kids planned her party for her along with her dad.

While I had the floral stamps out, I made a second card. I'm using this card as a sympathy card for a dear friend who lost her dad to brain cancer.  Sending lots of love to her.

Love the stitched stripe background on the first card and that sun sentiment banner! I love the sentiment on the second card - gorgeous font and layout.

This is such a nice and touching birthday quote. Hunting for a pleasing event space Chicago for my daughter's birthday in a couple of weeks. Having kitty party on the same day. Will book a perfect place to cover both the celebrations in an exotic manner. Will take from my sister too.
