Episode 2 of the Birthday Cards


There are a few times a year when I get nervous about creating a card.  Both my daughters birthdays, Christmas and my dear friend Elaine's birthday card.  I have known Elaine since senior year of high school.  She is a very classy lady and a dear friend who is willing to go the extra mile to make something happen.  I think the world of her and I try to make each birthday card extremely special.  This year is no exception! 

So I asked her for a couple of quaint eateries she enjoys.  I picked one and found a pic to use as the background on the card. I then used bits and pieces from a bunch of ScrappyDew les  

Here are the lyrics (and it's a bunch!)
 Drop Dead Divas        
       Diva dress #5
       Diva Shoes #2
       Diva Sunglasses #5
       Diva Purse #2
From the Scrap Factory Program
Hair is called 'Jana'
Jacket is from Sunday Best (under outfits)

The dog is from the ScrappyDew file called Little Yorkies
(told ya it was a lot of bits and pieces)  So here is the card:

Elaine sends photo Christmas cards each year.  So I did have some help with the colors for Andrew, I came pretty close.  See the purse, I cut it out and embossed it with my embossing machine.  Cut a small length of ribbon for the leash and a rain drop for the handle.  The entire card was made using scraps (really do need to make some new scraps).  The envelope is from Graphic 45 paper.

I sure hope she likes it. I put a lot of love into this one.  For next week, I have 2 more birthday cards to share with you.  But for now, have a wonderful week!

Bright blessings, Jana
