A Craftalicious "Happy Birthday"




Our challenge this time at Craftalicious is "Birthday" chosen by Carly! Karen's Doodles are our wonderful sponsor this time and they were so kind to let us each choose an image to use!

My niece turned 50 today! Several months ago my sister-in-law and I were trying to convince her that 50 is not that bad and told her all the benefits of being 50! (which seem to escape me at the moment. lol) Anyway, when I saw this ostrich at Karen's Doodles, I just knew I had to make her a card to help usher in this wonderful milestone. To make it even better, I called her to wish her a happy birthday and she said she was not really having one this year. Then she said that getting older was for the birds. I almost lost it on the phone because she has not received my card yet. Happy Birthday Dear Tauna! You know I love you!!!

I also just noticed this is my 100th post on my blog!!! I want to thank all the people who work so hard creating the challenges !!! I also want to thank all the sponsors that so generously support the challenges with their wonderful donations! I cannot believe how much my life now depends on my "play time" and how you all have become a part of who I am! It is so much fun to just come here and get away from the everyday things and enjoy the company of friends that enjoy the same hobbies! To each and every one......THANKS!


I hope you all will come and show us your Birthday creations!!!

  13. Smile? You bet and you made me laugh! I love the sentiment of this -- it's not a morose "Oh you're getting older, in your face" type of card. Instead, it is humorous and good natured and you know, that's really sweet!

    Thank you for sharing such a great project with us at Opus Gluei!
