Happy Birthday Angie

This is technically my second card for her.  The first one was that lovely basket one down below.  Last week, her awesome husband e-mailed me and asked me to make a card for her that he & the kids could give her.  He said she'd like that better than one he bought.  Awwww. It was sooo sweet. So, of course I said yes.  And I was so excited and honored.  Then came the panic.  Two cards?  For the same person?  Two completely different cards?  Breathe. Breathe.  Ok, so I finished the first one.  And I liked it.  Yay, me!  And I was feeling pretty good about myself.  Then I got stuck.  It was like I had never made a card.  Like the last card was all I had in me.  No more ideas.  All dried up.  Great.  I gave him the good one!  I didn't even know where to start.  It was like I had no stamp sets that were worthy.  And, hahahaha, that's really funny, cuz if you could only see how many stamps I have...Anyway, as you can see, I got both cards done.  And I like this one for her.  It's (almost) her favorite color. And it's whimsical - and who doesn't need more of that in their lives?  Happy Birthday, girl!

You shouldn't stress, silly girl. Any card you make..we all love ! That is why we come to your blog.... to ooooh & awwww.
I love both of them SOOO much. As soon as I saw the envelope with my gifts from family.. I had a feeling. Then I opened it and had that ...oh, wow.. this is so nice the heck did he get in touch with Mint and get the card, LoL.I didn't know the whole story till I just read it here, thanks for filling me in. He likes to keep me in suspense.
I believe you could whip up a card in 5 minutes or less and it would be fantastic to all of us :o) !
