Not only do March and April bring warmer weather they bring a lot of birthdays our way.  As in the case of Old Mother Hubbard, I went to the cabinet and it was bare (of birthday cards!).   I love the texture on this simple card.  The flower (bought on clearance!) is so soft and pretty, the ribbon I used for the center is velvet and only 1/8" wide and I just love that I can use the glittered leaves I bought at Christmas time for a spring card!  That paper is new MME, from the Miss Caroline "Dolled Up" collection.  I've said it before, but I am so happy that manufacturers are making their papers in a 6x6 format!  That print wouldn't look near as good if I used a 12x12 piece of paper.

Happy Birthday

CS: Bazzill, Paper: MME, Sticker Sentiment: SRM, Flower: Jolee's, Ribbon: Maya Road,
Doily: LYB, Other: glittered leaves, machine stitching

I love the SRM Fancy Sentiment with this card!  I'm hoping to make a few more birthday cards over the weekend.  2 of my boys have birthdays early in April so you will see some boy cards in the near future!

I hope happy finds you in some little meaningful way today, friends! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Such a beautiful card! That flower is gorgeous on there! TFS!

  3. This is lovely, Jan. Those glittered leaves on that pretty flower are gorgeous!


If you want to be happy, be.
