This morning, after my walk in the drizzle with Riley, I created this card for a friend's birthday, belatedly. Her birthday was in Sept, when I was deep in the slump, so her gift was cardless.....little did I know until she told me that she has saved all the cards I've given to her. I felt so sad and complimented at the same time.
Since she'll be coming along with us to dinner tonight because it's her hubs birthday dinner, I am going to slide this card to her on the side.
Yes, it sentiment-less on the outside. There is so much going visually with the paper patterns, images and the bow, that there just wasn't a place for a sentiment. That's okay, there's a heartfelt message on the inside.
