I love birthdays!

I think birthdays are awesome! I love making/buying presents/cards for people to let them know how special they are!

One of my dearest friends, Deena, is having a birthday next month and I'm so excited because my family and I actually get to go celebrate with her! They moved away 1 1/2 years ago and we haven't been able to make it to any of their birthday parties (she has 5 kiddos...GOD LOVE HER! LOL) because it's a 3 hour drive and with my hubby having to work Saturdays it just hasn't worked out. This year the party is on a Sunday so we get to go party it up with them! YAY!! When I first made a cookie sheet magnet board she had mentioned that she liked them and wanted one so I knew exactly what I wanted to make for her birthday:

When it came time to maker her card I thought it would be a cool idea to make her card match the cookie sheet and then use one of the magnets I put on the board to hold the card! I love the magnets too. Awhile back at our christian bookstore I bought 3 packages of these magnets that have bible verses and symbolic pictures on them so I grabbed 4 magnets out of a pack and put on this board! Here is the card:

Another birthday we're celebrating in Sept. is my mom's! She's turning 50 this year so we're throwing her a party!! Her favorite color is purple so I made this card for her:

Now I need to decide what to get her for her big birthday! I also have quite a few other birthday cards to make and presents to make/buy! There's gotta be something about December & January being such cold months that makes for lots of September babies! LOL

On that's raining outside and weirdly enough, I'm kinda thankful for it! My ovaries have rebelled today and I'm in a lot of pain so it's a good excuse to have to just lay low and stay inside! I'm off to take some midol and lay down til it kicks in! HAPPY FRIDAY FRIENDS!!!!
