Birthday Bash and a Birthday :-)

The Operation Write Home Birthday bash last Friday was a wonderful success.  Eight crafty Patriots showed up to make cards for tour service members to send to their loved ones.  We made a total of 126 cards, and there are still more card kits to be put together!  I am so happy to be a small part of this organization.  The card above is so simple, yet elegant.  One of the ladies had never stamped before, and she picked it right up!  Didn't she do a great job?  Her "thinking of you" sentiments were perfectly placed!
Now on to another birthday celebration.  My daughter-in-law has a birthday tomorrow (and will officially be pushing 30 for the next year!), and this is the card I made.  We celebrated her birthday on Saturday so there could be a big family gathering.  I tucked a couple of Macy's gift cards inside, since that's her favorite store. :-)


  1. WoW! So many cards for the Birthday Bash!! Good for you! Lovely design! Show us the other designs, too!

    The B'day card is so elegant! You do such lovely work.

  2. I love both of the cards! A first time stamper...wow! Perfect. The birthday card is simply beautiful. What a treasure (and filled with the gift of shopping)! Congratulation on the success of your OWH Birthday Bash.
