Happy Birthday, dear Ginny!

Hi, everyone! Today is my friend Ginny's birthday. It's been a rough year for her; she's got fibromyalgia, her daughter and son-in-law are living with them(not all bad, either! :D), and her husband was diagnosed a few years ago with an incurable cancer., and everything seems to pile on at once. So, I wanted to take this special day and design a card with a couple of ideas she's had on the color-block cards I've shown you. :) (Ginny has a wonderful blog, too - you can find it here! Please leave her some comment love!!!)

So, here is her birthday card! :)

So, Ginny, I put it on an Early Espresso background, with just a HINT of Wild Wasabi outlining it. The Designer Series Paper *could* have been a bit more masculine, but don't tell anyone - it's from the Holly Berry Bouquet Specialty DSP. :D (Hey, I fit in Christmas wherever I can. LOL!!) I ran the Wild Wasabi squares through the Big Shot with the new Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Snow Burst. (I call it SPARKLE to myself, cuz that's what it looks like! :D) The tag is from the matchbox bigz die.

I hope you've had a WONDERFUL day, Ginny, and that Phil is feeling well enough to celebrate YOU. Be blessed!!!!

Now, then. Y'all get back to work - go stamp something! :D

Lori, I wasn't able to get on the computer Monday evening. I wasn't feeling well, and I had to get to bed early because Phil had a doctor's appointment Tuesday. We went out to dinner Tues. PM, so I've had a two-day celebration, which includes your wonderful card! I love what you've done, especially dry embossing the one paper! Thank you for blessing me.
