A Birthday Bash

I am so fortunate to have such good friends.
Really fortunate!
My friend, Deborah, celebrated her birthday last week.
Her friend, Adela, celebrated her birthday last week as well.
Deborah owns a sweet, sweet retreat nearby.
Deborah opened The Craft-In Retreat House for a birthday bash.
We had the best time and learned some new tricks and projects.
We ate a delicious lunch and some great munchies.
A German chocolate cake was served.
Nope - didn't even taste it.
I'm STILL not eating chocolate.
Not since September 1 ... that's 267 days without chocolate.
I didn't think I could do it, but I did.
Here's the card I made for Deborah.
She told me she was going to hang in on the coat hanger
that I created for her last year.
Awwwwwwww - warmed my heart!
The colors work perfectly!

And this corsage.

  And this little peat pot.

Of course, it had to be turquoise so go in her craft room!!!
Even though I didn't know Adela, I made her a little corsage, too.
Thanks, girls, for inviting me.
What a great day to spend indoors with old and new friends on a rainy day.


  1. What a fun day. Love the little peat pot - so sweet!

  2. Deborah's card is gorgeous and I love that card next to it. Is that paper or a stamp with flourishes. Love these!
