Happy Birthday!

Hello and happy Monday!  Happy? you say?  Yep, Monday is my day off, so Mondays are always happy around here!  :-)  Today I'm sharing the birthday card I made for my BFF (and also the gift card holder that went with her present).



The whole birthday was black, white, red, and silver-themed, to go with one of her gifts, which was a button pendant by Jen Carter of Jen's Ink Spot.  Not only is she a talented card designer, Jen also has an Etsy shop where she sells her lovely button ring and pendant creations.  It's also called Jen's Ink Spot and you can find it here.  And she has a Facebook page you can like, which I recommend because then you get to see her newest creations as soon as they are posted!  Here's the packaging my friend's pendant came wrapped in:


Of course, I completely dropped the ball and forgot to photograph the pendant itself!  I am such a dork.  But, this would make an excellent excuse for you to check out her Etsy page to see examples for yourself, LOL!  (I should mention that although I did ask permission from Jen to post the photo of the packaging--and the forgotten pendant, darn it--I did not receive any sort of compensation from her.  I am just a satisfied customer, online friend, and fan of her design work.) 

Okay, and here is the quick little gift card holder that went along with the pendant and a few other goodies:


Inside was a card to our favorite clothing store.  I had a cute black and white metal pail-type holder that everything was in, but due to my excessive dorkiness, I forgot to take a pic of that too!  Sigh. 

I'll close with a big thank you and virtual (HUG) to all of you who sent condolences on my mom.  I still haven't responded to all of them, but I will!  I hope to have a small post on her soon.  Hope you're having a good day!
