Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear Lori, Happy Birthday to you! I hope you have a wonderful birthday filled with cowboys and cupcakes! OK… maybe just the cowboys part because I know your willpower with cupcakes is much stronger than mine! *grin*

You deserve the most special and relaxing day of celebration! Thank you for all that you do for me, for your friendship and support as a Christian sister in this journey through life. You’re a constant encouragement and whenever I need a smile I can close my eyes and imagine your giggle. It does the trick every time!

Here’s the birthday card that I made for Lori! I used the Tweet Hearts stamp set and started by stamping the branch in Memento Rich Cocoa and the leaves in Lime Pastel inks. Then I filled in with the bird and flower stamps. The patterned paper is from the MME Lime Twist Life of the Party collection. I somehow resisted to use the cupcake patterned paper from the collection and decided to go with the flowery pattern instead. I popped the image up over a Spellbinders Lacey Square die cut and embellished it with ribbons and flowers and flower brads from my stash. It’s hard to see in the picture, but I also included one of those pretty little butterfly stick pins in the flower. The birthday sentiment is from the Make a Wish stamp set. I hope you like it, Lori! It should be arriving on your doorstep soon! 😉

Thank you all for stopping by today! If you get a chance, head over to Lori’s blog or Facebook page and wish her a Happy Birthday!
