"Happy Birthday"

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.
If anyone has a birthday over the next few days this card is for you.
Thank you so must for popping by today,  I love when you do that.  I hope you like what you see and call back again.
My day at the tearoom was fun filled from start to finish.  Elaine and I have a wonderful relationship, she is more like a sister than a friend.  I know Hazel will not be offended by this comment she knows Elaine so well.  We started the day off by laughing about something silly that one of us did ......don`t know which one!!!!  All the customers were in "happy mode" today so it was all fun.  The Tearoom has built up a lot of regular customers who obviously enjoy the banter Elaine has with them all.
Finished for the day and Elaine handed me an envelope with my wages.  I always come home open it and pop the money in my box (I am saving for Birmingham).  When I opened the envelope it was empty!!!!  I asked John if I was being silly could he there is nothing there.  I text Elaine "Did I not work hard enough today.  My envelope was full of emptiness"  Within the hour she was at my door with another envelope and laughing.    Her quote was "this has just been the perfect end to a perfect day"  It started off silly and had ended the same way   ...   good job we are great friends!!!!

Todays card is very similar to the one Thomas and I made last week.
Base 6 x 6 white card
Slightly different selection of backing papers printed from CDs which I stitched
I folded over top right corner, fastened with a button from my button jar
Added flowers and leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I twisted the stems I cut off round a cocktail stick to give the the little "twirly" bits
Happy Birthday is a rubber stamp matted onto card and cut into a Fishtail

That`s it for today, have a wonderful weekend
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it and all your lovely comments
Till next time
