Covered in Birthday Wishes!

Today I'm sharing a birthday card I sent to a sweet friend for her special day 'today'.  

I've used Stamping Bella's Courtney Loves Kitties, which was an easy choice as this is a typical photo of Debra sitting on her sofa and her lovely children joining her! 

I stamped this image on Neenah 110# cardstock and used Copic markers for coloring.  The stitched and scalloped edging die is from Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped Rectangles Die set. 

I couldn't just put a Happy Birthday sentiment on this card. This special crossing of paths in our lives from a simple card swap group, to tragically loosing a good mutual friend, to become co-admin for a site we held in great value for to finally meeting in person and becoming even closer in our friendship.  Yes, God has blessed this relationship into a true friendship ~ and I am grateful! 

Happy Birthday Debra!  I truly treasure our friendship!
