Snowflake Birthday!

Hello!  Happy Thursday!  First off I want to say thank you so much for all the lovely birthday wishes!  Had a wonderful day yesterday!  We went to a newish restaurant for some pizza cooked over coals, so yummy!  And why is it that my kids eat so much better in a restaurant?  :>  If you didn't enter already I do have a giveaway with my birthday post it's the post after this one.

I wanted to pop in with a Birthday Card for Virginia Lu!!!  It's her 50th Birthday tomorrow and she is hosting a Virtual Birthday Celebration!



First of all I can't believe that Virginia is turning 50!  She looks SO MUCH younger!  But I admire her for her for embracing it and celebrating it!  I have to say that I think so highly of Virginia!  Not only is she crazy talented but she is such a great person!  She is kind to everyone (especially in the Hero Arts Flickr group!)  Always leaving comments everywhere (how does she do it?)  I so enjoy her blog and how she talks about her family life.  I love that she shares that about herself it really helps you to know her!  I've been blessed and been able to chat with Virginia on the phone from time to time and I always enjoy our conversations!  She is so easy to talk to!  I really hope that one day I have the chance to meet her!  I know that we will truly hit it off in person!  BTW Virginia you are welcome to visit, I'll kick one of my kids out of there bedrooms and it will be yours!  :> (in case your worries the kids have pillowtop mattresses!) So Virginia HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  Happy 50th!  Congrats on your first publication, I hope you only get more and more!  :>

I decided to make her a wintery birthday card.  Having a December birthday I've seen that Hallmark makes them (sadly no one has ever gotten me one!) So I had to make it.  Plus I really like my new sparkly embossing powder and wanted to use it!


I am running out of time so I will write about the card in a bit...

Phew I made it!  I had planned on posting a birthday card for Virgina tomorrow on her birthday but than luckily I checked and saw that her celebration ended today!!!  I worked on this card while my kids with my friends son (took him home from school and watched him for a bit) ran around playing loudly!  I made the snowflake panel three times because I couldn't get it perfect (not sparkly enough) than I couldn't find the Happy Birthday stamp!  But I did finish it in time before daylight left and got a picture!  Go me!  :>  

I hope you like this card Virginia!  And I hope your birthday is as special as you are because you are so special!
