Have to share

I  attended a surprise birthday party for a dear friend a couple days ago.  She is my granddaughter's auntie, on the other side and is very close to her especially because Camryn's daddy (my son in law) passed away
4 years ago when Camryn was 2 years old.  Now, I know that my friend is uncomfortable with receiving expensive gifts (or any gifts at all),  so I chose to make something for her.  It cost me very little, except for time.  So as the gifts were being opened, and there were lots of beautiful things, I started thinking that my little home made gift looked pretty small in comparison.  And then I thought "No, she is going to love it.  And it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks".  And you know what?  She did love it.  She told me later that my gift was the most special of all and she would treasure it.  And I believe her.  So here is a picture of what I made for her.  You have to know, that if you ask Camryn what her favorite colors are, she always says, "pink and purlpe and gold and sparkles", so that is what I used.

And here is the card I made for my friend.
Here is a link to the sayings on the pull out tabs.
She liked the card too :-).

Happy day to you all.
