Have a drink

Today's card was inspired by two challenges. The first, Happy Hour over at Cupcake Craft Challenges led me to the second, Congratulations at One Stop Craft Challenges.

When I first saw Happy Hour I almost passed. I wasn't working on nor did I need to work on any kind of project even close to Happy Hour. Then I looked at my general To-do list. A friend of mine has a birthday later this month so her name was on my list to get the card mailed out. Her husband is currently out of the country for an entire year doing the military thing so I thought if anyone needed a drink it would be her. I didn't want to encourage her to drink alone just because he was gone, though I know there are days when doing just that might be the thing to do. That's where Congratulations came in. What about a card to congratulate her on making it this far into the year. Trust me, she's about a third of the way through so she deserves some congratulations.

Here's what will be popping in her mailbox.

It's a pretty simple card - just her style. The image is from Stamping Bella, the sentiment from PTI.

Thanks for taking a peek.
