Happy Birthday Dear Friend

Today is the celebration of my dear friend Kathy’s birthday. We have been friends for over 40 years and my life is richer because she is in it. While distance keeps us apart geographically we have never been closer. I am sad we cannot be together for our birthdays. Someday!

I CASE’d (Copy And Selectively Edit) this card from another Pal Rosanne Mulheron where she featured the middle sized daisy from the Grateful Bunch Photopolymer Stamp Set (one of my favorite sets).

The inside sentiment is from Avery Elle. I love the font she uses.

I hope this brings a smile to her face. Kathy always calls me first thing in the morning on my birthday to make sure she is the first to wish me happy birthday. Her hubby is away so I am hoping she gets to sleep in so I may not call first thing this year.


This is Kathy and I a few years ago at their Lake House. I treasure this photo and keep it in my office. It makes me smile every time I see it.

So Happy Birthday dear friend, the world is a better place because you are in it.

  2. I love your card! Would you mind sharing the finished dimensions?

  3. The card is a standard A2 (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) in Night of Navy. The next layer of Daffodil Delight is 1/8″ smaller and then the Floral Boutique DSP is 1/8″ smaller again. I used 10 of the larger daisies from the blossom punch. Let me know if you need anything else.
