Friends with Flair and Birthday Mail

Hello... It's that time again and I'm glad because preparing for Unity's weekly blog hop makes me focus on getting necessary cards done. My m-i-l's birthday is in a week and now I'm set. I used a K&Co paper pad called "Wild Raspberry" that I found on sale for $5.99 at a local dollar-plus store. I love how the paper is already glittered. With all the lovely busy-ness on the background paper, I was able to keep the images simple. The bird is from Melody Ross' Love Life kit and the mailbox, letter and sentiment are from Sending My Love . I made a small slit in the mail box to slip the special delivery letter in. (Just a reminder that I have a tutorial link for this type of card on my sidebar :-)





Have fun blog hopping!

I'm going to go shake my rain stick in the hopes that poor beleaguered Texas will finally get some rain to put out its numerous fires. NJ has had a week of rain. Wish I could send it down....
