I told you I would share some of my Birthday cards with you. This beauty is from my dear friend, Michelle Smith. I met Michelle waaaaayy back – more than 10 years ago – when we were both honored with an appointment to the Stampin' Up! Advisory Board! She was from Tehxxxxxus and not used to my New Yorkness! Seinfeld was HUGE here and Elaine's exclamatory "Get OUT!" was the phrase of the moment. That would have been okay with Michelle except that we would always "push" the other person when we said it! (Like Elaine!) LOL! After a week with me and the Jersey Girl (Tina Rosenkrans), she had had enough. We were out to dinner with the Executive Team and she refused to sit next to Tina and me!!! We were terribly amused and a little bit horrified! We went on to become great friends and, like many of my Stampin' Up! friendships, it has endured the test of time. My friends are such a source of joy in my life!
Michelle is a lovely and thoughtful person who NEVER forgets my birthday! I am so appreciative – especially because I tend to forget EVERYTHING – including other people's birthdays! This card arrived first – as it always does – and I was thrilled – as I always am – to receive it! I especially love the texture on the cupcake "frosting." Thanks, Michelle!
