I've been busy.....

Feeling better and running behind!

So I wanted to get some Birthday Cards done in advance, so I used my new favorite thing.....centering sentiments that I run off of the computer!!!

And then used one of my favorite cards....the S-fold card. You just have to be picky on the phrases and verses you use, because there is not alot of space for them.

The only difference is one has the word sister in it. That one is for a dear friend at church who calls me her sister (through the family of Christ our Savior)! The other difference is I increased the size of Happy Birthday--had more room than I thought. Oh, and forgot--I highlighted the flowers edge--as I did the did slightly on the edge of the sentiments.
