Happy Birthday Marjorie!

I made a birthday card for my friend Marjorie using an Elizabeth Craft Designs accordion die...these dies are so much fun to create with and always result in a stunning card. The dies are really easy to work with, there's no need to be intimidated by the design. 

I used transparency for the centers to make it look like the images are floating. The hardest part of this card was trying to figure out how to connect the panels without the glue showing through....after much thought I came up with glue dots, thank goodness they hadn't dried up! Do you see it?!

A little history about Marjorie and I, we "met" when we were paired as partners in a Cricut swap we both signed up for and we became friends with our very 1st email. Even though we live 450 miles apart we were able to meet when she came to the area to visit her son who was attending college just a couple suburbs away. We chat almost every day and I am so happy to have her in my life and to be able to call her a friend!
 Happy 50th Marjorie!!


Thanks for stopping by and sticking with me this past month, I have to say it's been nice  to sit back and enjoy the summer. School started for my youngest today which, hopefully, allows for some extra crafting time!
