Birthday wishes

Hi folks,
Margaret here with a fun little card for a friend of mine who is celebrating her birthday in September.  Since classes are only 1 week away, I'm trying to get all my cards out of the way this week since once school hits, it will be hard to get inspired. :(

But anyway...I had a blast making this card.  As you can see from the's supposed to bring some smiles.  She's only turning 43, but in college she always used to say she couldn't wait to be an old lady.  Since we watched the Golden Girls religiously, she, I and our other two friends made believe we were each one of the characters and my friend was no less than Sophia!  LOL.  So I know she'll get a kick out of this card.

You will notice the drama in this card with all the stickles on the fire.  Although it's almost impossible to make out, the smoke and has loads of glaze all over it.  The lady is cut out and propped up with foam.  I am submitting this card to the Seize the Birthday Challenge: Anything goes.

WEll I hope you enjoyed!  It's actually quite chilly here today...raining raining raining tonight with storms after a lovely breezy day.  But we need the rain...just not the cold.  See ya' Monday everyone!  Thanks for stopping by and all your wonderful comments on our blog posts.  We read (and reread) them and they make us smile. :)
