Happy Birthday Sue

Good morning friends.  No, my title is not a typo!  I mentioned before that I have a lot of birthdays in November, and earlier in the month was my cousin Sue's, and today it's my good friend Sue's birthday!  We started celebrating early this past Friday with a homemade lunch, and of course, making a card!  I'll show that one to you later, but today I'd like to share the birthday card I made using Gina K's "Fall Foliage" stamp set.  Take a look:

I love this stamp set as it makes the leaves look watercolored!  I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery and Early Espresso (SU!) inks for the leaves, and Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, and Certainly Celery cardstock for the layering and die cuts (PTI).  A little bit of dark brown grosgrain ribbon finished off the card.  Easy but very elegant!  And here's the gift card holder I made to match it:


I am finally starting to get some use out of PTI's Quick Stitch Sentiments, and still can't believe I waited SO long to use these dies!  Don't they just add such a nice touch to a simple gift card holder?!  I think this "Wish" one would be great to use for Christmas gift card holders too!

Happy, happy birthday Sue!  Hope your day is special and full of nice surprises! :0)

That's all for this post friends, but I'll be back shortly with another post for PTI's November Blog Hop.  Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful Monday! :0)


  1. Beautiful card and gift card holder!

  2. Thank you, Marcia for the beautiful card and gift holder and my other goodies, too! Thank you so much for making me lunch. The potato soup was really good as was the rest of lunch. It was fun making a card with you, too. We don't get together to do that as much as we should! Again, thank you!


Thanks so much for stopping by...your comments really do make my day!
