Birthday Card Request

Hello! It has been crazy for me the last week...put in a lot of time for work over the weekend so that really put the damper on playing with my new LYNX! BUT, I had a birthday card request from my neighbor. She had a picture of her mother and herself that she wanted me to frame and put on a card...here is the card I came up with:



I had decided to try my hand at an easel card. Let me give you a few deets about the card...the frame is one that I cut on my new cutter...created by Paulo. He has the most awesome cut files on his web site...if you have a cutter and are interested, please pay him a visit and leave some love! The sentiment was computer generated and cut out with one of the Fancy Tags from Spellbinders. The bling on the front of the card and on the inside had been purchased from Big Lots...Colorbok adhesive flourishes...2 came in a package for a buck...I think I am going to go back for more of those! Also on the front of my card you will see the cute little hummingbird...that is an image from FSS...Wee Hummingbird Colored...isn't he just the cutest? On the inside of my card, I used various Martha Stewart punches to create some interest, added some more of those flourishes and another of the Wee Hummingbirds. LOL now, I have to create an envelope for this card! It is 5 1/2 square so I don't have anything that size...wish me luck! Well I want to thank you for stopping in...and a special thanks to those who leave some love! I hope you had a wonderful day today and tomorrow will be just as grand! I plan to do some visiting tomorrow and will surely check up on all of you! Thanks again!

HUGS!
