Happy Birthday

Fellow blogger, Marcia and I met 23 years ago, when our two oldest daughters started preschool.  She and I have shared many great memories over the years, including our love of stamping.  She loves Melissa Phillips' cards as much as I do.  So I thought this card would be perfect to make for her birthday. of my favorite set from PTI is Doodlie Do and I've been wanting to CASE this card by Melissa Phillips for a very long time.  I've looked at her card so many times, but never realized until I read the blog today that she paper pieced it.  I thought she had colored it with markers.  Shows you how close I looked at this card...oh my!

I stamped the flowers on different sheets of designer paper from Penny Black's Painted Blooms paper pack and fussy cut them all.  My card isn't exactly like Melissa's but awful close.  It was a time consuming card with all the fussy cutting I did, but I think it was worth it.  IRL how my card turned out, as did Marcia. 

Thanks for stopping by, I love it when you do.


  1. You're right...I absolutely loved it and it will be sitting out for a loooong time so I can enjoy it! I have Melissa's card pinned on one of my boards too and never realized it was paper pieced either, until you told me...hahaha! Guess that shows you how closely I look sometimes too! I'm so glad we've had these last 23 years together, and can't wait to see what the next 23 (or more!) bring! Friendship is definitely one of God's sweetest gifts!! :0)

  2. Hi Sue~ Your card is as fabulous as Melissa's, even better! That paper piecing looks like a lot of work and you've pulled it off flawlessly! It's so nice to "meet" a friend of Marcia's. You're the "Sue" she's always telling me about! I just became your newest follower. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving some kindness. <3
