Happy 50th Birthday

I have a card today that I made for my girlfriend. We have been best buds since childhood. She was the youngest of our little group......and we use to tease her a little about her age. As we all got older she then got to gloat over the fact that she was younger...lol.

For a gift I had a little fun giving her some age related items. I make and label my own home made soap...so.. I gave her three bars of soap replacing the original labels to say; "Achy Pain Soap"..."Over the Hill Soap" and "Anti Wrinkle Dimple Soap". They all state in brackets under each name (for 50 and over)...Of course I also included a few nice little gifts...(a couple of hanging ornies for her deck). I'm not all mean...lol....all in fun. She has a great sense of humor and is an Awesome person and friend.....

Here is the card I made for her. I hope she likes it:

Stamps - Penny Black, Hampton Art, SU amazing to zany, Inkadinkado.

Paper - SU whisper white, always artichoke. K&C Mckenna, Basic Grey Phoebe.

Image is water colored with H20's.

Ink - SU close to cocoa, creamy caramel, basic black, Versafine black.

Accessories - Stitching, flowers, brad, Maya arts ribbon, stardust black pen, glitter, scribbles, coluzzle, oval scallop punch.

Have a wonderful day every one!.....and....

What a fantastic card. The chickens are a stitch -- and so are your soap names.
