I made a card this weekend for a friend of mine that is having her 29th birthday this week. My inspiration for the card came from this post of the Scrapbook Trends blog.
My general rule when I make cards is that I can only use scraps to make them. The patterned paper and the ladybug are from the BasicGrey Lemonade line that I loved so much and have lots of scraps of. I used my Slice to cut out the '29' and dangled them from matching embroidery floss.
I'm also sending her this little guy. Isn't he adorable? I made one for myself several months ago and he sits on my scrapbook desk holding pretty little Jenni Bowlin pins. I had started another one, but hadn't finished it until last night when I decided that my friend would love one for her birthday! The pattern comes and the material comes from Heather Bailey and is available in her store here. I love her stuff!
Happy Birthday, Jen!
(I made her promise not to look at my blog until her birthday - I bet she sneaks a peek anyway!)
