Happy 102 Birthday

What a great day Monday will be.  Not only is it Valentine's Day but it is the birthday of a very special lady,my friend Ruth.  I am so excited for her to be celebrating her 102 birthday.  I have gone to church with her my entire life.  She has been a dear friend and a part of our family for as long as I can remember.

Ruth is such a special lady.  She is in amazingly great health.  She has an incredible memory, great wit, is super intelligent, and still insist on cutting her own lawn.  This spring she told me one Sunday morning at church how excited she was, because she got a new lawnmower.    Ruth probably bakes more cakes than anyone I know.  She is always taking a cake to someone.  Her (made from scratch) carmel cake is the best ever.  And she has given me the recipe.

This is the card I am taking to her for her Valentine Birthday!

The heart is cut from the SWEETHEARTS cartridge.  The papers are from AC Specialty and The Paper Studio.  The ribbon is from Michael's.  The heart border is made with a Martha Stewart punch.  And the puffy sticker is from K&Company.   The heart was embossed in the Cuttlebug.  
And here is the inside of the card.

Ilook forward to giving Ruth her card and wishing her many more great birthdays.

This photo was taken this fall.  Isn't she just adorable!!!Happy Birthday Ruth!

  2. What a beautiful card! I am a caregiver for a woman who is 100 (for another few weeks) and When I left this morning she was getting dressed for church. she is such a blessing in my life. You left a comment on my blog during the blog hop about your coming to Fayetteville. I just returned from my sons house in Calera so bet we have been passing each other going up and down 20 at some point in time. It sure is a small world some days. Have a blessed Valentines Day!
