Just For Fun: Carol's Birthday Party

Yesterday we celebrated Carol's birthday. 

She is celebrating her 39th birthday still 46 years later. I love this woman...she still works 5 to 6 hours a day and continues to make cards with the group every week (unless the store asks her to work overtime!) She can run circles around me!! 

Sue M. was our hostess and not only did she provide a healthy lunch (vegetable frittata) but baked a calorie free birthday cake...
uh huh! It was an angel food cake with a whipped cream, Heath bar crunch frosting. I had a piece for lunch and a piece for dinner!

She prepared beautiful card kits for us and I'll show you one today. She and a couple of the gals went to the Stamp Fest show at New Port Richey a couple of weeks ago and she bought these particular stamps there. We all fell in love with them...

Over at Alphabet Challenge Blog their challenge is "Y" which equals "Y"our Choice. So it was my choice to enter this card!

The inks I used were Early Espresso, Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist and Calypso Coral. Just Add Ink #399 - Just Add Water is my second challenge. I used my Aqua Painter and the colors above to give the illusion of a sunset, water and sand. I love this card and I have a particular recipient for it. It will involve printing an original sentiment on the computer for the inside.

We had such a great time today stamping together. I hope you had a good time visiting my short but sweet post. I'm telling you, that cake was delicious!!


  1. Okay - when will you get here with my piece?!? :) Cute card! :)

  2. Like Mary (and Finn), where is my piece. Love the stamp and card. Bless Carol. Happy 39th again. Hugs: Mal, Australia

  3. Looks like you had a great time celebrating! I'm with Mary, when do we get a slice of that cake. ;)

  4. Thank you Mary, Mal and Amy for visiting. Perry had another piece tonight and there's one left. I'd ship it to you but it would tast better if you made your own :-)

  5. What a beautiful Lady. I hope to be someone like her in the not so distant future. She should be a model for all of us. Thank you so much for sharing her with her.

  6. That looks divine! And the card is pretty cool too! The glimmer panel is a lovely addition. Thanks for sharing at Just Add Ink.

  7. I love the subtle blend of colours on your background - it adds a lovely depth to the card. Thank you for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week x

  8. I really love they way you have water coloured that background colours. They create the perfect sky. Chantell Just Add Ink

  9. It's a very cool stamp set - I would have found it hard to resist too. Great card, thanks for sharing it with us at Just Add Ink.
