Happy Birthday Claudia


The card I’m posting today is for the lady that owns the quilt shop that I work part-time at.  She is a very lovely person and a joy to work for.


Besides being a wonderful quilter she’s also an avid gardener so I thought this would be the perfect card for her.


Here’s another look……..


One more..


Now I will share what I made for her and no it’s not a quilt or a purse.

I got some vinyl out and along with my Cameo decided to make her something with her name on it….


First I had to make a trip to our Lowe’s store where I purchased 2 different sized glass blocks…..then I decided to use the smaller one and this is what I came up with.   I added some wide ribbon and a few flowers and I was done!

Now I needed a gift bag but didn’t want to go to town and buy one so I started my search for something I had here.  I found the perfect size but it had a business name on it.   I cut out 2 solid blue squares from my card stock then went to my Cameo and found a Happy Birthday in my library resized it, cut it out and this is what I ended up with.


I really had fun doing all of this so I just might have to do it again.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope your week has been a good one and you are looking forward to the week-end.

hugs, Ruth Ann


  1. What a beautiful gift & straight from the heart. I love the wonderfully colored card & that glass block is gorgeous with her name on it. And how ingenious to recycle a plain old bag & turn it into a cute little birthday gift bag. All turned in to a one of a kind gift that only you know how to give. The card is totally adorable & so perfect for Claudia. Can't wait to see what you whip up for the next occasion & some lucky recipiant...
    hugs, Janie

  5. Oh, she would have to love it as it is beautiful. I agree it is the perfect card for her. I love your glass block also. I love getting home made gifts! I know the person has put effort and thought into my gift for me. You are sweet to do this for her.
