Happy Birthday Andrea!

I feel like a horrible sister-in-law. I have been sending out cards to all my siblings and Jacob's siblings and all the spouses for severaly months now, not to mention all the neices and nephews. Well when I make cards as you know I like to make ones that just fit the recipient. My sister-in-law Andrea's birthday is today. I made a card a few months ago for her but it just didn't seem to fit her. So I scraped that one and I have been trying to come up with a card for her. Well on Friday I finally got it right. But here it is her actual birthday and I still haven't sent the card. I was going to send it yesterday but wasn't feeling well so I didn't make it to the post office.

So Andrea, I apologize that you don't have your card yet. You will get it soon. I did however want to post the card so you could see it. You are a wonderful sister-in-law, an amazing mother, the best wife there could ever be for my brother and an awesome friend. You trully mean the world to me and I hope you know that. I hope that you have an amazing birthday.

As for your card, I will send it today but I wanted to post it now so you could at least see what it looks like and so that I could explain my reasoning for this card. There is a reason I went with this color combo and with this layout and stamp set. The color combo I found on the Color Throwdown blog. Pink Passion, Basic Black, and Kraft (although I added green for the leaves). The reason I chose this combo is because when I think of you I think of bright and fun. I chose the layout I did because it is classic. Just like you. When I was choosing the stamp set I wanted something that was elegant so I chose A Rose Is A Rose. All of these together sum up my feelings toward you: bright, fun, classic and elegant. I could choose so many more words to describe you, but to me, these sum it up better than anything. Once again, I hope you have a fabulous day. I love you!

What a beautiful card and what sweet sentiments! (I bet she doesn't mind one bit that her card will be a bit late!)

I can't wait to get it. I love it!!!! Although I'm not sure I'd describe myself as 'elegant'...silly girl.
