Happy Birthday, Girlfriend

Hi, guys! Hope you are having a great day.  I have been celebrating a lot of birthdays lately with my girlfriends.  I thought today I would share a card I made for my friend Monika.

Stamps: Unity
Ink: Versamark, Distress Inks
Paper: Papertrey Ink
Misc: White Embossing Powder. Perfect Pearl Mist (Pearl)

I am very lucky to have a great group of friends.  I met Monika through my co-worker and now good friend Mariola.  When my husband died, Mariola befriended me and introduced me to her niece Monika and and two of her best friends.  They took me into their group and helped me laugh again.  I never would have thought at that point in my life that I would, but the gathering of friends has a way of helping mend one's soul. Laughter truly is the best medicine!   The group is fondly named for Jane Austen, a society that celebrates all things "Jane" and tea.  So this card with the lovely teacup seemed appropriate to me.   We love tea shops, tea parties, dressing up for royal weddings and making homemade pierogi (even if mine look odd!), and Colin Firth is our favorite Mr. Darcy.

Wishing you a great day, and some very special friends!

The card is exceptional; stunning. I love the idea of a Jane Austen Society. Perhaps I should start something similar out here!

Your husband died? : (

So glad you have a group of friends!

Very curious how you made the white lines on the tea cup!

Love Jane Austen!
