Gloria's Birthday Blog Hop!

Let me tell you about my friend Gloria (whom I call Glo).

I met her while she was working at a scrapbook store that
was closing
called Scrapbook Cabana.
She was my insider when stuff was being marked down or final offers.
Little did I know that my insider would soon become one of my
very close and dearest friends. 

Happy Birthday Glo!
Wish I was there to celebrate with you

In honor of Glo I made this Mickey Card.

I used my Mickey Font cart


For the inside of the "G" I used a font called "WALTGRAPHIC"
for HAPPY BIRTHDAY


Happy Brithday sticker and a small message for Glo :)

For this card I used the Cindy Loo cart.
Used the border for the background,
and printed on the vellum is the following:

Your birthday is a perfect time -
To stop and reminisce
About the many hours we’ve spent
Discussing that and this.
The laughs, the smiles
That we have known,
The wonderful things we’ve done
That make the friendship
 that we share
A very special one!



I used a mocha ribbon for the top with two strips of lace stickers.




Now for the good stuff!!

Keeping with the birthday theme my give away is this stamping set
from Stampin' Up!!

Bundle of Joy
