Delighted

Today is Gardening Daughter's oldest daughter's birthday.  She's twenty-three years old -- not a child any more; in fact, she has a beautiful 2 year old daughter of her own. 

Of course, I made her a birthday card.  That's what I do.  I hasten to say that the butterfly images are not "stamped" but were already printed on some lovely papers I acquired at the local scrapbook store. For those who might be interested, the paper patterns are from the "Gabriella" collection by Bo-Bunny.

While I don't often blog about the cards I make, I was pleased with how this one turned out, and since she doesn't read my blog,  she won't see her card until I give it to her this evening.

This is what it looks like when it's closed:


When it's partially opened:

I hope she likes it.

Did you hear about the electrician who lost all his incandescent bulbs?  He was delighted.

Tomorrow is also a day

What a beautiful card! One of the volunteers at the mission where we work in the summer makes beautiful cards in her "off" time while there. She always donates several to the gift shop when she leaves and we sell them quickly! blessings, marlene

I don't see how she could not be delighted with this beautiful card. Thanks for sharing this with us.

I am very busy at the moment living my life and doing lots of other things and don't have time to run off at the mouth the way I usually do, the way you are probably expecting me to do this time as well, so I must gather up all my gumption and fortitude and self-control and restrain myself (unlike that widely-publicized incident involving French actor Gerard Depardieu on an airplane yesterday) and just say, in my own inimitable, but very succinct, way:

Ditto.

You really outdid yourself on this card. Since I have met gardening daughter, I can say a personal Happy Birthday, too.

Hope you are getting the same thunderstorms we are right now 8:30 a.m. It sounds wonderful.

OOPS it is gardening daughters, daughter (granddaughter). I have met one but take it, this is notthe one I have met.
