today i am showing a birthday card i made for a very "old" crafting friend ~when i say old i mean we have been friends for over 40 years!! we meet on our first day at school and have kept in touch ever since!!

i used dovecraft paper, my new ladybug and friends stamp, docrafts word stamp, flowers and ribbon from my stash.
