Happy Birthday to my Very Dear Friend

Hope your holiday weekend is off to a fun start.   

A few days ago, I had dinner with one of my friends that I hadn't seen for years.  We dined at Hilo Rice Noodle.   Yup, you guessed it, I ordered noodles (Chicken Crispy Noodles).  YUM!   And dang, I brought my camera and was so hungry, I forgot to take a pix.

Today, I took another dear friend to Miyo's for her birthday.  Had a grand time chatting and grinding.  This time I took a break from noodles and ordered the combination Shrimp Tempura (another fave of mine) and Beef Teriyaki.  Had my camera and DANG, forgot to take a pix AGAIN.  Guess when I'm hungry, I tend to lose my memory.  Ha-ha-ha.  Boy, that placed was packed.  I swear every single seat was taken.  And it's no wonder, the food is so oishii (delicious).

Well, here's the card I made for my friend.  As you can see, my eyeballs were a little crooked when I glued the sentiment on.   Or maybe I shouldn't mention cause you wouldn't have noticed yah?  LOL.  Let's just say it should be on a slant.  Hee-hee.
You can't see it but I also placed a clear plastic over the image to give it a glass effect.  

Here's the close-up of the flowers, charm, and shiny butterfly.....

I used these fun items for this card:

Image - "Miyoko" by Sister Stamps
"Dainty Leaf" die by Poppy Stamps from Island Scrapbooking
"Butterfly" die by C.C. Designs
Sentiment by and from Island Scrapbooking
Frantage from Ben Franklin Crafts
Flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearl flourish by Prima from Island Scrapbooking
Ribbon from stash
Dangling butterfly charm - made by yours truly
Pearls by Kaiser Craft
Cherry Blossom embossing folder by Cuttle Bug

I made some cards to give my friend as part of her gift.  Will post them in the upcoming days.

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!
