Birthday Blessings

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying the summer sunshine!  It's beautiful outside in the Vancouver area and I have to admit, I have been shut up in my craft room ALL day!  I have been productive so far, today, and I don't plan on leaving my craft room just yet, however, I did bring the sunrays inside with this card that I made for my friend's birthday this weekend:
