Happy Birthday Chris, FSS Challenge

Good Morning. It is a dull day in New England. We had rain yesterday and all night. Today is cloudy and gray. Usually on days like this I don't want to do anything but sit on the couch and watch TV but today I seem to want to get things done. YEAH!!

I needed to finish this card for my friend Chris. Her Birthday is this week and I was one pearl short! I finally found the correct size pearl yesterday so I can mail this tomorrow. I started working with Chris 25 years ago. She was layed off about 10 years ago but we have remained friends. She is my Spa buddy. Our Birthday's are a month apart and when we turned 40 we started celebrating by going to a spa and before or after we go for a nice meal. We don't live really close to each other so we don't get the chance to see each other often. I look forward to our visits.

She also loves getting my cards. She tells me every year that she keeps all the cards I send her so I always try to make something I think she will really appreciate. This year I went with the Digi Set by Fred She Said. I love her stamps. She makes the most beautiful flowers. This set of flowers came with frames to be pierced. I am always drawn to piercing. I'm not sure why but I like it. It took me a few trys to figure out what scissors worked best to cut out the frames. Cutting things out is not something I am good at. I inked up the edges to hide my mistakes. The flowers are Asters and I don't know if they come in pastels but I wanted this card soft of feminine so I went with it.

I also just figured out when I went to get the FSS link to put in the post that she is having a contest! YEAH!! I would love to win this and without even knowing it I have the card made! Maybe a good sign...Hmmmm....

I hope you all are having a great weekend. I hope you like my card.
