A Special Birthday

I'm taking a break from Christmas cards and sharing a Birthday card for a special friend and her Birthday.

This is a milestone birthday like so many of us have had this year or will be having.  It's all about those Baby Boomers.

I had so much fun designing and creating this card.  It just had to be special.  I think I am finally getting a handle on colouring with markers.  Every time I do some, the images seem to get better.  I hope you agree.

I even decorated the inside, something that I am trying to do more often.  Sorry, forgot to take a picture.

I hope you enjoy.
