Blissful Birthday

Hi Friends

Thanks for stopping in today. I hope you’re having a great week. I’ve not felt too great, but I’m hopefully turning the corner.

I wanted to share a card I made for my Mother-in-law’s birthday. I combined Lawn Fawn’s Blissful Bontanicals, Judy’s Blooms and the sentiment from Bake Me a Cake in this card.


I have a funny albeit embarrassing story to share about this card. On the day I mailed this card (packaged with her birthday presents), I also mailed a package to a friend who’s been enduring a difficult time. Well, I didn’t label the packages before heading to the post office, and, well, my mother-in-law got the “Thinking of You” package and friend got the “Happy Birthday” package. SO. HUMILIATING.

Boy, did I feel (and still do, I might add) like a DORK. Anyway, both parties were very good natured about it, and even helped in setting things right.

Lesson learned, I will always address the packages before going to the post office.

Have a blessed day friends

That sounds like something I would do! Beautiful card by the way, lots of big flower beautiful-ness! I love those leaves from blissful botanicals, but I have not use them yet.

Gorgeous card! Love the pearls in the center! And what a funny story about the mailing mix up!! LOL! I'm sure it wasn't too funny for you at the time but hopefully you can laugh about it now! :)

I do stuff like that all the time — I just don't admit it! Good for you for being brave and sharing it with the rest of us so we don't feel so bad!! Again, a gorgeous card!

That's too funny. But the card is well worth the wait, in your MIL's case. It's gorgeous! Love that stripey paper with your beautiful flowers.
