A thank you card!

Happy Friday!!!! Here is a card I made for my intern who recently went back to school--Neil was the best intern I have ever had!
I used the last bit of my favorite ribbon and threaded it through a vintage suit button
the sentiment stamp is from Paper Trey Ink and papers are SEI (Oh how I love thee) Windsor collection
The bottom pattern paper is pleated to give some texture to the A2 sized card!
I also heat embossed his name on the envelope.  I like to give my interns a small gift of thanks when they leave--and I have a passion for a good pen, so Neil got  a lovely cross pen that I found on one of my trips overseas and when I went back I bought a few of them as I have not found this style in the US.  You would be surprised as to what impression a pen can make!
Tonight the birthday book will be handed over--and Saturday I will be diving head first into crafting--I have a number of trips planned and want to make sure I have plenty to share when I can not actually craft.
Have a great weekend!

Birthday Card using Cricut Paisley Cartridge

Happy Thursday--boy for a short week it is really kickin me!  Today I want to share a simple birthday card that I made for a lady at work.
All the pattern paper is SEI Juliette which I think is simply beautiful!
I cut the flower shadow at 2 1/2, 2, 1 3/4 and layered up.
The center of the flower is a vintage button in a smokey grey color.  The button has a shank back so I punched a small hole in the center of the flower, applied a couple glue dots to the under side of the button, placed through the hole and used pop dots which allowed for the shank in the back--I love it when a 'plan' comes together!
On the inside I  finished both sides, stamped Happy Birthday and added a little bling!

There were a lot of people who needed to sign this card so I finished both sides to allow space.  Finished card is standard A2!
I have another simple card for Friday.
Update on the BIRTHDAY BOOK--since I have to give it to my best friend on Friday thought I would give you a progress report.  I have all the layouts complete and pictures attached (except three that I have to re size) all I have left are the journal entries!  It only took a year but it looks great--I will share all of the layouts with you next week (would hate to kill the surprise of the book)!
Make it a great one!
