Happy Birthday Janie!

Well believe it or not here I am once again.  This time I was waiting for the mail to arrive at an RV park in Tucson.   Now that Janie has opened her card I can now post it… here goes.
As you can tell I’ve used one of my favorite colors on the card….can you guess which one it is.  The green card stock is from SU, the stripe however is one that I’ve had for sometime and more than likely purchased it at a JoAnn’s store.  This Magnolia stamp is one of Janie's favorites and mine which is Celebration Tilda.   She always looks like she’s ready to give you a great big hug.
Here’s a closer look at this cute Tilda.   The lace doily behind her is a real lace doily that I found when going through some drawers the other day.  Back in the early 80’s we took a trip across the pond to visit London and while we were there visited Oxford.  I  believe I purchased this package of lace doilies at that time and then forgot I had them….what a nice surprise.
The flowers are from WOC and are always an wonderful embellishment.
As you can see I used the same papers inside, I cut out the sentiment using a Spellbinder die and added the little corner punch here and on the front as well.  The punch I’ve had for years and years so there really isn’t anything I can tell you about it.
That’s it for now folks, so glad you stopped by and hope to see you again.  I always enjoy sharing the things I love to do with others.

  3. Gorgeous Ruth Anne - absolutely gorgeous. I do love this color combination and will have to use it soon. Your flowers are arranged so nicely. It looks like a real lace doily! Really beautiful. Now I am going to have to keep my eye out for doilies when I go to my antique/junk store. Beautifully designed and colored!!!
