Happy Birthday Grandma!

This card is on it's way to you...

Today is my Grandma's birthday (I think she is 83!). Unfortunately, she lives in New York and I am in Oregon...so I don't get to see her very often. The last time we were able to visit was in the spring of 2003. I have been dropping hints to my husband that I would like to go back next year, so let's hope it all works out!

My grandma and I have been pen pals ever since I learned how to write, but now I am able to keep in touch with photos as well on our family blog.

This was a fun card to make and I wouldn't normally think to pair brown with green, but I love how it turned out. I sponged the flower with cocoa ink so it stands out more against the cream colored lace paper.

I love the lace paper! Who makes that?

And Happy Birthday to your Grandma :) I am a pen pal to my Grandad who lives on the south coast of England - aren't their letters the best? Have a great weekend!

The lace paper is very old school. It came on a spool I found at Goodwill about 7-8 years ago. I think it was all of 50 cents!

Very nice card, and may your grandmother have many more happy years ahead of her.

I am from NYC now living in Indiana, my mom is back in brooklyn and I miss her terribly, I can't wait for her to get a computer so we can web chat.
