Time for a Birthday Hello!

One of my husband's good friend's wife had a birthday in February.  I first met Fran through my husband, who was friends with her husband through a working relationship.  After retirement, this couple graciously invited us to go out camping with them and taught us how to "clam" for Razor Clams on our Washington beaches.  These were fun and enjoyable times and her birthday afforded me the opportunity to wish her well on her special day by making her a card.

One of my Stampin' Up stamps from a set from SAB 2013 had remained in its box, and I really wanted to see what I could do with it.  It depicts the interesting red phone booths that you would find in London on a visit to the British Isles.  I am wondering if this English version of  a phone booth is still as plentiful as they once were or if they, too, have disappeared as ours have in the United States for lack of use with the advent of common place personal cell phone usage.  I hope Fran enjoyed her card and had a happy birthday!
