Happy Birthday Dem

Hi!

So if you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you’ve heard me talk of my dear friend Demaree (aka Dem) who lives outside Chicago. She and I have been friends for many years, and I consider her family as a second family to me.

Well, my sweet friend’s birthday is today, and I wanted to share the card I made her and the set of cards I made her as part of her gift.

Here’s her card…

I used Skipping Stones stamp set which I actually bought just for her birthday because she loves purses. I mean seriously, loves purses. I did something that I saw on their website. I stamped one of the purses, cut it out, covered it in red line tape and then wrapped it with DMC floss. I added the rose to it just to kick it up a little bit. The fabulous patterned paper is some My Mind’s Eye Stella Rose (Mabel). Love these colors so much that I made the gift set with them as well. Here they are:

Hopefully, she’ll like the set. Since she loves purses, I think she’s going to enjoy these.

Thanks for stopping in.

Hugs and Blessings
