Today is one of my good friends' 60th birthday. She's celebrating in Florida with her family as they enjoy a week together before Rachel (her oldest daughter) and Juan's wedding on Saturday in Boca Raton. We're leaving bright and early tomorrow morning to drive to Florida for the wedding. Then we're spending a couple of days exploring southern Florida (Miami's Art Deco architecture, the Keys, and the Everglades) which we've never seen. On our way home, we're stopping to see our good friends in Charlotte, NC and visiting the Biltmore Estate in Ashville with them. I've been to Ashville several times, but never to the Biltmore which is supposed to be amazing. I'm excited about the whole trip!
Here's the card I made for Cathy. It's one of my favorite birthday cards.
A little Washi tape, a tag cut with a Tremendous Tag die from Papertrey Ink and edged with a gold leaf pen, some gold sequins and a bow with some gold twine I bought years ago. The numbers were cut with the Typewriter Numbers by Memory Box. They were the perfect size for the tag. I gave the card to her husband before I remembered to take a photo of the inside which says in gold letters "and fabulous!"
It's going to be a very busy 12 days so I'm not sure how much time I'll have to read and comment on blogs, but I'll be sure to catch up with you when we return.
