Happy Birthday

Today is my daughter's birthday. I can't believe she is 34 years old. Where does the time go? She is catching up to me for sure...LOL

This is the birthday card I made her:


The stamps on the front of the card are from The Angel Company. It is called Linear Sentiments. I am loving this set. I also used Apple Green #2 Cardstock from TAC. The inks I used were Palette inks Chartreuse and Boudoir Blush. The sentiment on the inside is from Verses and says "Surely a star danced in Heaven on the day you were born" I love that sentiment and really like to use it on my birthday cards. I bought the little flower rhinestones at a local stamp store for the center of the flowers.

As for my last chemo treatment it has left me with a lot of bone and joint pain again. It is better this morning. Yesterday was bad but I took it easy and rested. All I can say is I will be glad when August 8th gets here and we can do the last treatment. We will think about today and enjoy it. Tonight we are going out to dinner to celebrate Alison's birthday. It will be fun to have all the family together.
Who could ask for more?

Rita,
I know what you mean about our daughters getting older. It's both scary and joyous to look at them and see ourselves. There is nothing like a mother/daughter relationship. Your daughter will love that card. It is so beautiful. I'm with you on really liking the Linear Sentiments set. I plan on using it a lot.
