A Retro Birthday

So a few us in a Sisterhood swap on SCS were talking about birthdays and how once you get to a certain age that you want to stay at then you proceed to celebrate the anniversary of that birthday. For example say you want to stay 29 forever, for your next birthday you would celebrate the 1st anniversary of your 29th birthday. I think my most memorable birthday had to be the year I turned 30. I had reached all the goals I had set out to do by that age, but barely. I found out I was pregnant with my daughter in August, we closed on a house October 25, I started my new job October 31, and I turned 30 that November. I don't think I could stay an age forever especially now that I have my daughter. I enjoy watching her learn and grow by the day. My next goal in life...seeing my daughter celebrate her 30th birthday. BUT on another note of birthdays, a very special and inspirational friend is celebrating hers this month, Miss Sandra (B-gin-R, BTW go check out her blog candy). I tried to make a card that embodied her. She has brown very curly hair, loves pink and orange, and absolutely loves the 80s. I am again using a Miss Anya stamp from the Greeting Farm that I made an 80s style outfit for complete with jelly braclets, legwarmers, yellow tights, a short blue jean skirt, and who can forget the extra long shirts with a belt around it? I modified a clipart image for the TV, added some brads, and my infamous ribbon tag. I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it.
