Phillis's Birthday Card

  Before we set sail for our cruise in April , I had finished my sister, Phillis's birthday card. I forgot to take a picture of it before I had sealed it for the mail. I asked her to take a few pictures of the card 'cause I was pretty proud of how it came out. She sent them a few days ago.
   It's kinda like a mini-album; only really mini. I put pockets in it to hold some photos of Phillis from long ago to the present.
   I used my Memory Box butterfly die cut that I absolutely love. I was pretty ecstatic to use my birthday embossing folder. I don't think I have ever used it...
   The background stamp is from Memory Box, too. I used my Copic Markers to color the branch and flowers.

Inside Pockets
    I got the idea for the inside pockets 'cause I have been working on mini albums so much lately. I am putting pictures from our cruise into the first album I made. Now I am working on finishing the Disney Album.
Here are the tags I made for the pockets.
   I loved making these tags that go in the pockets. It is fun to pull them out and see what "treasures" they hold. My Crop-a-dile tool comes in real handy making those holes in the tags.
   Phillis and Cary are coming for a visit in a few weeks. I think they might be a little chilly coming from Florida to Maine in May. Although we have had a few days here and there of warmer weather.
Maybe they will bring more of the warm stuff with them.
   Thanks, Phillis for sending the pictures. Can't wait to see you guys. I guess I will head outside to pull some dandelion heads. Happy Spring .....
