Happy Winter Birthday to a Special Little Girl!

Thanks a million to all you wonderful folks who buy my hand-crafted cards: you challenge me to stretch my imagination and hone my crafting skills.

Haley's skating card frontHere is a cute 5″x5″ easel card that I made for a young lady who is going to be six years old this January. She will be celebrating by hosting a skating party for her friends. Her grandma asked me to design a card that was “all blue and sparkly.” Here is what I came up with, I hope it inspires you!

Here it is in its “easel” position.

When it’s fully opened, there is lots of space for verses and messages.

And last, but as important, a handmade personalized envelope…
