Two Special Birthday Cards for One Lovely Lady

This has been a very special week, having my husband home for more than a couple of days!  Today is his birthday and we've had a lot of fun times.  On Monday his partner, Sam, and his wife, Deb, will be here in Branson to celebrate Deb's birthday.  Deb is a great lady and I look forward to seeing her; it's been awhile -- too long!  I made two cards for her: one for Sam to give her and one from us.  Sam had me make their anniversary card, too.  Neither one has seen these cards yet and I don't expect them to be looking at the blog, so........

First is the card for Sam to give her.  I've been wanting to do a card in ivory and black.  The inspiration for the sketch came from "I (heart) 2 Stamp". The background dp is from my stash.  The bird and flower fabric is actually sheer gauze "ribbon" that I placed over ivory card stock.  The lace trims and buttons are from Making Memories.  The lily-like flowers are from the bridal department at Michaels.  I used a sentiment from my Printshop software and cut it out with the Nestibilities Label 9, backed with a larger one in black card stock.  Then finished with a touch of pearls.  I think Sam will like it.  More importantly, I think Deb will, too.



The second card from Jerry and me features a lovely sentiment, again from the Printshop software.  The card stock is Making Memories Chloe's Closet and is trimmed with Martha Stewart punch-around set.  The flowers are Prima and the butterfly is from Michaels.  Lots of pretty sparkle with the rhinestone swirls.  Deb's favorite color is peach, so I think this will fit the bill.



So, Happy Birthday to a very special lady!

Thanks for stopping by today.  It's a busy and fabulous Fourth of July weekend!  I hope you all have a fun and safe holiday!
