One of the ladies that has been a friend for many years and part of my ladies' dinner group is having a birthday this month. She has a great sense of humor and a wonderful smile and a twinkle in her eye. I re-created a card from one of my sister's designs (Heidi Gonzales - My Lil' Scrap corner), that made me think of Ilene the entire time I was making it and decided right then and there that I would save it for her birthday this year. I love the Authentique Renew papers that it is made with and the garden Papertrey Ink stamps/ die set. This card's design prompted me to puchase the set to use for several of my friends and relatives who have green thumbs. I hope Ilene like her card, made with her in mind.
