|This is an alternate card. I used the negative from the pine trees and sponged different greens on it, layering them on the card.|
|This is another alternate using the negative after popping out the label (see the Happy Birthday above). I sponged Mint Macaron, Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam onto the white card.|
|Another alternate. This time I cut strips of the envelope, one of the cards and some scraps I had from the Wood Textures DSP pack and layered them onto a Mint Macaron card.|
|This is another alternative using the lighthouse from a previous Paper Pumpkin. The Happy Birthday is from the die on page 217 of the annual catalog.|
|This card folds in from both sides.|
|Simple - just taped a piece of Mint Macaron ribbon underneath the badge (sentiment)|

I have been busy getting ready for my mom's 90th Surprise Birthday Party on Sunday!! Ashley is flying in on Thursday so I'll have to keep her hidden until Sunday. Mom will really be surprised to see her since she and I were just there (in Hawaii) visiting Ashley last month. It worked out that Ashley has a class in DC in a week so she was able to take a little vacation time for the party. Mom had told us girls a couple of months ago that she didn't want a party because all her friends were dead. My sister (who lives with mom) is in charge of the invitations since she knows most of mom's church friends and friends from the Lion's Club. Our numbers creep up every day and we are now at almost 80 people!! So I guess everyone's not dead! I have to go to the Dollar Store every couple of days to get more packs of plates, napkins, cups, etc. After the party, our family members are going to a local restaurant for dinner which will make her happy too for all of us to get together. The only one missing will be my son and his family which makes me so sad.
