50th picture

I haven't felt well enough to try making cards, so I thought I would post the picture Greg did for me for my birthday.

Of course he didn't write down everything he used but I can probably figure out most of it.

Taylored Expressions -- Clouds, he bought these, said he loved the swirls in them
I think he used a template for the rays, the sun is a gear, I think from Spellbinders.  The swirl behind the number is Memory box.   Do you remember when I used the 50 on his card, we used the cricut and the first one we cut was way too big, well he used that one on this picture.  The star is a punch from Martha Stewart, and yep that is a bird on the sun, he has a thing for Ravens.

He wrote on the back all about the sun, moon and stars, and he ended it by saying Connie you are the sun, the moon and the stars and I am still amazed....  Yep I started to cry, he has a way with words.

Don't forget to comment on the post below to have a chance at winning all these goodies, and more that I will be adding.

I still am having dizzy spells, and how I usually get sick while reading in the car, now I get sick if I read too much anywhere, so I have to limit my time on the computer and all reading I do.  The mornings are the worse and by the end of the day I start to get better, not sure what that all means, other than the motion sickness pills have built up in my body by then.

Thanks so much for prayers and thoughts for me, I really appreciate it!
