Time Passes, Friendship Stays.....

This is a birthday card for one of the girls in our craft group that meets at Jan's place every month. There's 8 of us altogether and it's a fabulous little group. We celebrate each other's birthdays and this is the card Jan asked me to make for Chris's birthday.

It's the same sketch as my last sympathy card but I wanted to use this curvy verse and felt the book theme went really well with it. The roses and pearl spray with the lace and sprinkles just finished it off. I gave it to Jan last week and she absolutely loved it, so much so, that I have to make another one in burgundy tones for someone else in our group.

Very hot day here and I'm so very thankful that we have the house airconditioned because I wouldn't be able to craft at all otherwise.
Thanks so very much for visiting my blog and the lovely comments I receive.
Have a wonderful day everyone.

Very pretty, Leigh! What a gorgeous rose, too! I'm happy to see those Spellbinders shapes in use because I'm about to order them. Love how they look on your card. It's funny to hear how hot it is there when it's so crisp and chilly here. But then, you are in a whole other part of the world. Have a great day! -- Leslie
