October Birthdays

Wow, I can't believe it's been over a month since I've posted. To tell the truth, I'm not much of a writer so that probably accounts for not blogging very often. I was so busy with my son's wedding that I hardly had time to breath. Now that things have calmed down, my schedule is back to normal,  my house decorated for fall, I can get back to what I was working on in my craft room!

I have a birthday card to share with you. I made it for a very good friend of mine who I also work with. She works out of our Massachusetts office. Although I don't get to see her but maybe twice a year, we talk and email each other on a daily basis. She is like a sister to me.

Her birthday is the same day as my baby sister's birthday which is this Sunday, Oct 13. I liked how the card turned out so I duplicated it and made a 2nd one which I will give to my sister!

My sister loves her flowers and plants in her gardens, so she'll be sure to love the pattern paper I used. It's from the Graphic 45 line "Secret Garden"

The white and purple cardstock is from Michael's craft store, the lace, ribbon, flower and purple gems are from my stash, stick pin from Prima, the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

 One of my favorite holidays, Halloween, is right around the corner so I plan to be holed up all weekend making cards and treat bags for all the little ghosts and goblins that will be coming up the walkway, ringing my doorbell, and doing tricks for treats!
Good night!
