This is my beautiful friend Lynn and today is her birthday. I took this photo of her a few days ago when we went to the new Tommy Bahama Restaurant in Waikiki to celebrate her special day. A restaurant that I HIGHLY recommend by the way because the atmosphere, service and food was SO amazing!!!
Here is a close up view of the card I created for her.
When I create cards for people I think about their personality and things that make them unique and special. I always like my card to coordinate with the gift or location or theme of what or where we are celebrating.
I chose the little girl from talented Trio to represent Lynn, the birthday girl. I colored her in bright colors and patterns because Lynn is a bright and colorful person. I added a touch of red too because that is so her! I also added a small green purse that i made out of card stock with some gold foil accents because unbeknownst to her that was the birthday gift that she was about to open from us just after reading her card.
Today as Lynn celebrates her special day, she and her sister Keri are at the blood bank where they are hosting a blood drive. Their birthday wish was to get at least 40 people to come down and donate blood. I wasn't able to go down and donate blood so I participated by donating 75 of these favors for her so that she and Keri would have a gift to bless all who came out to support the cause.
Our new Bear Hugs set with matching framlits provided the perfect topper for these simple candy favors. I created the cross on the heart out of the candle from our cupcake builder punch. I hid the staple that holds the topper on the bag with the heart that is raised with a dimensional.
I am so grateful to have such a special friend and sister such as Lynn. Its not just the beauty she possesses on the outside but its her inner beauty that really makes her shine. I hope that today she will have a celebration that is as beautiful as she is!
Have a Beautiful Birthday Friend! I hope you will know how loved you are!
