Last night was quite the night.  My dear friend turns 50 on Wednesday so we decided to have a surprise party for her last night.  There were 17 of us waiting for her at a local restaurant, to hopefully make her 50th Birthday a memorable one.

Instead of everyone bringing their own gifts, we decided to all chip in and give Cathy something she really wanted ... a SPELLBINDERS GRAND CALIBUR MACHINE and the
2 SETS OF OVAL DIES.  And boy, was she surprised!

This is the card that I made from all of us to her.

I also made little table favours for each girl.

Christine ordered a custom cake to duplicate a card workshop that Cathy
had done, using a Spellbinders Sunflower die set.  It turned out perfect!

Life truly is about the moments and the memories that those moments leave us with.  Here's hoping that these will become some great memories for Cathy.

Thanks for stopping by.

The night was great!! Amazing to sit and look out and see all the wonderful women in my life that mean so much to me. Bonnie you make everything just perfect! The card the favors and planning the most thoughtful gift for me. I would never been able to purchase what was given to me. Thank you so much for being a great support in my life. I love you. The gift of your friendship means more to me that any crafting tool I have...but now you can stop listening to me whine about getting the oval dies. To purchase the calibur was icing on the cake. Now I can use all the sizes of dies! Not just the first 3 small ones.
