90th Birthday!


I have BIG news!


This is my 1,000th blog post on this blog!

WOO HOO!!!


And what a special blog post it is.... because the card I made is for one of our church member's 90th birthday. Ruth is our only attending charter member and her birthday is tomorrow. I hope she'll have a FABULOUS day! And I hope she will like the card I made for her.


 
 
I found the image online - but I can't remember where and have been unable to find it again. I'm sorry that I can't give credit to the source.
 
 
 
 
I used some Washi Tape and Baker's Twine to add a banner at the top of the card.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here's the inside of the card:
 
 
 
 
Happy Birthday, Ruth!
 
 
The July image is a freebie. I found it here.
 
The Happy Birthday was a free clip art that I have saved to my computer.
 
 
Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
 
 

 
 
Cardstock: Recollections Black and Staples White
Designer Paper: A Muse Studio Polka Dot
Embellishments: A Muse Studio Baker's Twine and Washi Tape from an unknown vendor
