Happy Birthday, Grace!

Aren't these two babes precious?  The little one kind of looks like I did as a baby.
I just love vintage and Victorian style things of all kinds!  From old pictures, to eyeglasses, to cameos, to watches, to perfume bottles, to embroidered linens,
and on and on... These little gals were in black and white, and I really love the technique of
adding just a hint of color to the focal image.  That's what I did here.  There
are many components to this card, but I don't have time to go into them all at this
moment.  Please email me if you have any questions - I will be more than happy
to answer any you may have.    The lacy oval above was diecut and sent to me by my
good friend, Donna.  I don't know the name of it, but I'll find out.

I used a new die I just got for making these tiny roses.  The more I make,
the better they look, and the rosebuds are so precious!

These little flowers remind me of some that I made for a wedding cake.

Well, I hope you had a wonderful birthday, Grace!  That, along with your hubby's good job
news has made your week a great one!  And as you said, "Praise the Lord!"

This card is going in the mail to you, Grace, so keep an eye out for it!
Happy New Year, Happy Birthday, Grace.
Congratulations to Alan!
