Annie's Birthday




Happy Birthday Annie...I really love what I did with these....the card and the box...my sister, Annie loved it...I was thrilled. The photos are bassackwards ...Annie, if you see this...I love you dearly!
Hi to all...Today is my sister, Annie's Birthday! When she was little, she wanted to be like Annie Oakley, who had a series on television ( I am SO telling my age)...I am positive that none of my commenters knows where or who this is...but, nonetheless...She was probably 6 years old and her "real" name is Ellen...She went to my mom and after watching the television show "Annie Oakley" she said that she did not want to be called Ellen...but Annie...and so it began...Ellen became Annie...LOL...
I made this card and 3-D carton, which has 2 oil sented vials from Bath and Body Works (Evergreen and Winter) for her birthday...She was sooo surprised and loved it all. I hope you all love it too...
The image is, of course from Sara Kay. I just love everything Sara Kay...
oops...gotta run...sorry...I wish you all the best of weekends!!!

OMG!!!! This is an absolute work of art. I can't believe all the detail and sponging, etc. that went into making this masterpiece. This is, beyond a doubt, the best card you've ever created!!!! And the precious matching gift bag is the icing on the cake :)

Oh My!! Velta, how did I miss this gorgeous creation my friend? I guess it was while I was under the weather. I remember Annie Oakley, I guess I'm telling my age too. lol, I remeber when I was about 7 yrs old, I was Annie Oakley for Halloween. My neighbor rest her sole, Mrs. Dunna, sewed it for me. She also taught me to crochet at that early age. I know your sister just adored it as I do. My bd is in a couple of months! LOL, thanks for sharing this awesome birthday celebration, and a HB to your sister.

Hugz, xx
