A Birthday Wish for Amanda


Believe it or not I have two posts today.  Our oldest granddaughter’s birthday is the 9th then we have another granddaughter whose birthday is the 10th so you will get a double dose today.

The first card is for Amanda who graduated with  a law degree and all she’s done for the last 7 years is study, study and more study.  Once she graduated she was then studying to take the bar.


She doesn’t wear glasses although she might now after all that studying.


Isn’t she a cutie!



Just a quick shot of the flowers on her card.  She will be 26 so boy that makes me really old.


Now this next card is Megin’s card she’s the one that just got married in June.  She will be 22…..nope I’m not getting any younger….darn.


She’s one of my dark haired beauties so I just had use this adorable new Wee stamp. 


I made three of the flowers using a Cheery Lynn flower die.  I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist but it didn’t show up so got out the Stickles.  After putting  the Stickles on I of course had to put it on all the flowers.


This is the inside of the card…..she is quite the horse lover, she and her husband have a Dunn and White paint horse so I just had to use this Cheery Lynn horse die.


One last picture of this adorable Indian Princess!   

Well that’s it folks….hope you’ve had a great week-end and looking forward to a great week.     Thanks for stopping by I always love hearing from you.

hugs, Ruth Ann


  1. Hi Ruth Ann..two super cute cards...lovely colours and layouts and I love your fabulous bows


  2. Wow lady I LOVE getting a double dose of your wonderful creations ... I laughed cuz when I saw your post cuz the 1st thing I did was run & check to see if I have some of that beautiful ribbon ... I DON'T !!! I have a wide copper one but not the narrower one. What a great idea to put 2 different color bows on there. Your colors are amazing & really love the Cheery Lynn flowers you made & glitzed up... And Amanda's card is so cute & personal with the "Law Book" written on the front ... Beautiful work my friend ...
    Hugs, Janie
