Someone's having a Birthday....

We have two special friends in our family that are celebrating birthdays this week - Mrs M, who is like a grandma to me and her wonderful daughter-in-law Cindy, who is so kind.  They are two very special people to our family and we're so happy to be able to CELEBRATE with them!  They'll BOTH be blowin' out the candles on Wednesday.  And because Mrs. M is one of my mom's crafty dear friends, I couldn't just go out and buy a card (she's seen my work and I've actually made several of my word albums for her to give as gifts).  :)  These two cards gave me a perfect reason to use some of my Basic Grey paper that I've had for what seems like forever, with no place to use it! 
Papers - Basic Grey Sultry Collection; Cardstcok from Stash (Bazzill)
From the stash - Ribbon, Primas & brads

Luckily I created these over the weekend.  My dad's been in the hospital since Tuesday, so we've been back and forth between the hospital, our house and my folks house.  We're headed back up today to talk with the doctors and hopefully get additional information and a concrete treatment plan, so we continue to pray for my dad.  We're hoping after a small surgery tomorrow to insert a feeding tube, he'll be able to go home on Saturday.  I'm teaching my mom the MCP Technique, while sitting at the hospital, so we'll have a crazy amount of images for cards I'm sure once all this has passed.
Happy Craftin' Today - and Happy Survivor Thursday!


  1. Min these are both beautiful, love the colours. I can't remember the last time I bought a card, I refuse to now I make my own.

    Hope your dad is out of hospital and well again very soon.
