86th birthday

A friend from one of my cardmaking groups asked if we had some time if we could make her Mom a birthday card, she is moving into an apartment from living in her home and thought she would love to get some cards.

My glasses broke yesterday and I had to use an old pair and I was having problems seeing through those bifocals, so I didn't do anything that I needed to see detail coloring. Thankfully my hubby was able to get them working well enough until I get my cataract surgery and get a new pair of glasses.

Lilybeedesigns -- Head over heels paper
Close to my heart -- brads
Spellbinders -- Labels 4 die
Hot off the press -- tiny words & phrases stickers (sentiment)
Martha Stewart -- Flower, leaf and butterfly punches
Enamel Accents -- White (on butterfly)

We are getting snow in just a few hours, our first measurable snowfall of the season.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

This is pretty with the floral paper and the laced up band. Love that! I just got an extra pair of glasses for close up work and it has made all the difference.
