birthdays and Springtime!

Last Tuesday night, I was able to head on over to my mother-in-law's home about an hour from where I live to hold a 3 for $6 card night at her house for her and her friends. I normally host these once a month at my own home. There has been some interest among her friends to attend card nights here, but they do not want to have to travel. I offered that I would come out there way once every other month to hold a card night at my mother-in-law's home. It was a great turn out of 16 ladies and it seemed like everyone had a good time! I hope to see many, if not all of them, again in June!

I created a similar version of the card below and shared it a couple of weeks ago after I was playing around with my Create a Cupcake set. The first card was created with blue, green, and red.
