Amanda’s birthday

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:16 pm by Ms. Petersen

My lovely niece, Amanda, has a birthday coming up so I made this tri-shutter card for her. Purple is her favorite color as well as mine, so that makes it extra fun for me to make her something. She has actually come over and made cards with me a few times, so she recognizes what goes into those extra-special touches, and thus, she truly appreciates the effort I put into cards I give her.
