Happy Birthday Mimi!

“Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend.”

~Plautus

It’s my good friend Mimi’s birthday today and I hope all the happiness she brings to others comes back to her today.  She teaches me so much, including this cute reindeer made with an EOS lip gloss as his nose!  She made me one for Christmas and I turned around and made 20 of them for all my nieces and sisters-in-law.  If you number your Circles dies from the smallest first, the reindeer is made with #1 for the eyes, #3 for the hole in the middle of the nose, and #5 for the head and nose.  The antlers are made with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.   Thank you for all that you do Mimi!!!

Note:  The bag is a clear envelope and I made the “bag” topper with the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set.  The EOS lip balm is the Summer Star Fruit Flavor and I used Watermelon Wonder Ink to match.  I also made some with Rasberry Lip Balm and Melon Mango Ink to match.

Back to Mimi’s birthday card, it’s a Mary Fish design made with the Birthday Blast Stamp Set in the new Occasions catalog.  It’s hard to see, but the blue strip on the bottom is heat embossed in gold with the words “Celebrate You”.  There is a coordinating Die called “Star Blast Edgelits” that I used with the Birthday Blast Stamp Set to decorate her package.  Fun!   Have a Happy Saturday and Happy Birthday Mimi!  Cheers, Dawn.

  1. Love this card Dawn. Snowing here = total house bound.

    This week was a hard one. My ex-husband, my girls Dad, died on New Year’s Eve. He was not in the best health, but it was pretty unexpected. The four of us went to the wake and funeral Mass as a family. That was the best part of my week. I am/was amazed at what people think they can say to you at a time like this, with regard to what you should do and what you should not do. Of course, they are/were doing it out of concern for us, but negative comments or suggestions were a constant source of irritation to me. We made it through and I thank God for that.

    I got Joseph’s thank you card yesterday. I have seen his printing on your blog before, but it is gorgeous. I think it would be a great font on the computer!!!

    I’m off to make a few Christmas thank you cards, which are long overdue. God Bless, thanks for listening and thanks for being my friend. xoxo 🙂

  2. Hi Nancy! Isn’t a comforting feeling to be housebound for awhile! Barbara is getting that storm down in Virginia too. Hugs to you and your girls, thank God we have the thought of heaven for our loved ones. Many people have said that about Joseph’s printing being fit for a computer font! He works hard at it. Have fun making your cards, loved your Christmas card. xoxo
