My husband and I got an invitation in the mail, but it's not really an invitation to a party. Very strange! LOL! ok, here's the story. We get this invitation informing us of our friends 5oth birthday, and how they are going on vaka with friends and relatives to celebrate his birthday, and while we are not invited to attend the festivities, we are asked to please send a card so that we can be there in spirit. This came from our friends wife, and i don't think our friend knows anything about this request because I'm supposed to send the card to a third party. I think it's very odd, don't you? or am I taking this the wrong way??? But hey, everyone needs a birthday card, and since it is for his 50th I decided to participate!
I immediately thought of Mr. Billingsworth from Eat Cake Graphics. And since i'm still in the patriotic mood he's red, white and blue. ON the inside of the card i used a sentiment from ECG. It reads...It's important to keep an open mind. But not so open that your brains fall out.... and then in very small print i wrote happy birthday. I thought that that was perfect! LOL.
My janome sew mini still had red thread in it so I went to town. However I did discover that you cannot sew through 9 layers of card stock. who knew? lol! It will jam the machine.
See you around!
PS...don't forget about the blog candy in my previous post. Your going to love it!
