Birthday present for Kimmy

One of my dearest friends is celebrating her Birthday!  When I asked Kim what she wanted for her Birthday this year - in typical Kim fashion she said nothing.  But I pushed and pushed and she eventually caved.  She asked me to make some cards for her to send to her daughter.  Well gee, I can do that!  So this morning I've been in the craft room making some cards.  How neat that not only can I make a Birthday present for a friend, but also participate in challenges this week!  YEAH!!!  So here we go (challenges for each card listed below the card):

Freshly Made Sketches - Sketch #82
Inky Impressions Challenges - Punches & Dies
Delightful Challenges - Colors of Spring
Loves Rubber Stamps Challenges - Colors of Spring
Cuttlebug Mania - Sentiments Only
 
 
Word Art Wednesday - Challenge #76
Tuesday Throwdown - Focus on the Sentiment
Inkspirational Challenges - Challenge #16 - CASE
 
 
Created With Love Challenges - Reuse/Recycle - the bottom part of the card is a store bought card that was sent to me - I love to reuse them rather than throw them away.
 
 
 
ABC Challenges - 1, 2, 3 - 1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 gems
 
 

This card is part of the challenge from Lynn in our blog group....one layer using flower stamp.
