A Birthday Card



My husbands birthday was yesterday. I felt so bad for him. His cousin died suddenly and he had to attend his funeral. Not the way you want to spend your birthday. I didn't stamp anything on the inside of this card. I just wrote him a nice note letting him know how much he was loved, especially on his day.
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Enjoy!
Recipe:
Stamps: Wanted, Bronc Buster, Warmest Regards
Paper: Outlaw DP, Really Rust, Vanilla. Sage Shadow, Choc. chip
Embellies: Brads, Ribbon, and yarn

Hi Lorraine, I am so sorry to hear about your husband's loss. You are correct there is no time to loss a loved one. I hope that the card helped cheer him up. Love how the card turned out. It is very hard to make masculine cards. ttyl, Jennie

Lorraine ~ Your card is just great looking, but sad about your husband's cousin. So sorry! My friends were telling me that they were not receiving my posts at their email addresses...That's what feedburner is supposed to do...anyway, I fixed it. As far as my picute, if I can ever figure out how (or have the time) I want to put it on the left side of my blog under About Me. Thanks again for your sweet comments!!

I'm sorry about your family's loss. It certainly makes a birthday celebration difficult. I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts.

Great card. I've been contemplating buying this set but haven't done it it!
