Celebrating the years . . .

A friend I have had since childhood is celebrating her 60th birthday this weekend and her sister is having a surprise party for her.  She & I spent many days & nights at each other's home during our growing years and although we don't see each other often as adults ... we have remained friends and I'm thrilled to be able to share in her birthday surprise.

This is the card I made today to accompany the monogrammed gift set and post-it note holder I made & shared with you the other day.  The invitation to the party was made using an old photo of Judy (circa 1952-53) and I was hoping to incorporate it in her card but it just wasn't working so I found this adorable little girl who just called out to me!
 I thought you might like to see the inside of the card too so here ya go.  Unfortunately I don't always get fancy with the inside of the card but when I do, I like to share it with you.

Now I'm headed outside and get the lawn mowed before it gets dark on me.  It's a beautiful 72 degrees right now but going up to 85 tomorrow and rain on Wednesday so ... yes, I know ... I'd better get out there!!   Thanks for stopping by and all comments are VERY appreciated!!  Hugs to ya!  Darlene
