Happy Birthday

Hello and good day!!

We had a wonderful family weekend and enjoyed celebrating "family" and "love".  We don't typically celebrate Valentine's Day on ONE day of the year.  We try and make it an every day event but will create a family centered day once a week or sometimes every two weeks just to reconnect.  We are fortunate that we get at least 5 meals a week as a family and that is pretty good considering my husband is a shift worker.

Over the weekend my beautiful SIL Jenna celebrated a birthday.  This is the card I sent her!!  As it turns out I have 3 SILs who celebrate birthdays in February.

I was so happy to use Kim Hughes Birthday Buddies available through Paper Smooches

  1. Create card bases and layers.
  2. Attach ribbon.
