Meet my happy friend, Missy. She is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from New York and the head of the Glad Heart Stampers group! Missy is such a positive, happy person! Missy is one of those people who brighten a room when they enter it.
This very sweet and happy friend recently celebrated her birthday.
Last summer, Missy and I shared a fun adventure in Utah together. We have been friends for many years but the quality time we shared together during this trip allowed us to get to know one another even better.
After finishing our work with Stampin’ Up!, we spent time hiking in a couple beautiful places.
One of the highlights of our time together was a day spent with Donna Griffith. We visited her beautiful home, saw her stamp studio, and then headed to her cabin for an afternoon of fun and adventure.
Donna and her husband Jeff are such a lovely couple and were truly amazing hosts. We had such a wonderful time with them both.
While at the cabin we saw so many beautiful creatures like moose, rabbits and deer.
I also spotted several squirrels. Missy thought it was funny that I was excited to see a squirrel! I explained to her that we don’t have squirrels in Hawaii. Missy told me that at her home there are tons of squirrels and they make a big mess! Needless to say, she is not as big of a fan of these furry creatures as I am.
A couple months ago, Missy mailed me a package and inside was this cute squirrel dish towel. Now, I could see a squirrel anytime I went into my kitchen!!!
I used Missy’s thoughtful gift to inspire the birthday card I created for her.
Missy’s Card was created with the set Fable Friends. I used Real Red Card Stock as the base of the card since it matched the red on the squirrels scarf.
I absolutely love the sentiment on this card! It comes from the stamp set Life Is Grand. I used a Gold Faceted Gem to place in the center of the daisy flower. It added a little bit of texture and sparkle to Missy’s card.
I used other images from the Life is Grand stamp set on the inside of the card. There was also a pocket in this card where there was room to place a gift card.
After receiving her card, Missy texted me and said, “Happiness is a smiling squirrel and a delightful birthday card!” I’m glad receiving this card made my happy friend even happier!!
