A Special Birthday Card & a Free WMS Digi Image on World Card Making Day!

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Teapot Tuesday Challenge over on Split Coast several weeks ago.



Each week Cindy offers a destination for our cards should we choose to participate. Someone who needs a lift or in this case has a really special birthday coming up. This particular week we made cards for Eula who celebrated her 108th birthday on 9/14/10! She is known for her flower gardens so I made flowers the theme of my card. The dress by Lockhart Stamps has roses and daisies on it.

After her birthday - the stamper who let Cindy (Mothermark) know about Eula, sent Cindy this picture of Eula along with just some of the cards she received. (can you see mine on the top center of the bulletin board!?) This lady reads 2 books a month, knits afghans for patients, and takes classes at the assisted living place where she lives. She knows how important it is to exercise your mind! She was just thrilled with all of her cards - and was most interested in learning about blogs and blogging!

What a wonderful reason to make a card - days like these make me proud to be a card stamper!!
Fun alert!: most of you probably know that this Saturday is World Card Making Day - To celebrate - Claire over at Waltzingmouse will be offering a free digi image on that day and will be holding a competition to win a free stamp set of choice. You'll find all the details on the Waltzingmouse Blog on Saturday!

Beautiful card, Julia! The Labels 10 matting is perfect for your focal image. And what a wonderful reason for making a card. 108!! Can you imagine? The memories Eula must have.

Holy Cow!! Your card is absolutely wonderful - but Eula doesn't look a day over 70! Truly - what a young looking woman! I don't know if she'll see the greetings on your blog - but I know that getting your card will certainly bring a smile to that lovely face - and what a gift of love!

Hugs - you are such a dear!
