An-udder birthday

Cheryl, at Cafexpressions, became a cyber friend when we were both collaborating on SVGCUTS.com forum over 4 years ago. Little did we know, her living in Michigan and me living in South Carolina that our paths would personally cross. She and her family moved to West Virginia...ok...a little closer.  We continued our shared interest with svgs, cutting machines and digi images. Heading to the beach with another friend, I called and asked her to join us...see did.  We all had a grand time coloring and making cards. She fell in love with the SC beaches and our weather.  1 1/2 years later, due to her husband's business, the family moved to Greenville....what were the odds. What's a little ironic, is that we still spend more time conversing on the internet or phone than actually visiting each other's house...haha  We manage to take some trips to the local craft stores together. If I ever run out of glue, at least I know more glue is just 6 houses away...lol

This is her birthday card.  I was instantly attracted to it when Doodle Pantry posted it this morning as one of their new releases....and there still a sale going on at the store.  Moo Sheep comes in black/white and pre-colored, along with fun sentiments and matching paper which I also used. I TOTALLY CASE'd Jennie Whittaker's fun card.

A2 vertical, stitching, added had sign, ribbon

EK pennant punch, I made shadow with Silhouette Cameo, pop-ups for dimension
