A significant birthday…


Recently we went to a significant birthday party for a friend of ours.  When someone at the party asked me how long I had known the birthday girl I was a little shocked that it is close to 30 years. Boy time flys.

Here is the card I made

I used my SU letters for the birthday girl’s name along with  cookie cutter punch, owl punch, fox punch and Papersmooches Hullabalo to make my “Liz”.  I used an embossing folder to create the background and my sentiment is from Cool treats.

The birthday girl is a great athelete competing in iron women events, various runs/marathons and stair runs (running up stair wells of very tall buildings). We meet when my hubby was competing in triathalons.  After so long mixing with these fit people it hasn’t rubbed off on me!

Hopefully you can see my idea of a water sport themed card.

I am linking this up to the challenge at Seize the Birthday here one layer – no toppings this time for me.

Thanks for stopping

  1. Wow! A great card – particularly like the ‘girl athlete’ – very creative of you to use all those punches (which I also own, so would love to copy your idea:). We can’t all be athletic Vikki – some of us have other virtues (like making wonderful cards!).

  2. Love it when you can make a card that is special for a dear friend. This one hits the mark for sure. Your friend will cherish it. Thanks for joining is at Seize the Birthday, Hope to see you again.
