Marathon Birthday Month

October is a huge month for birthdays around here. My mom, my m-i-l, two nieces and I were all born in October, plus three of those family members were born in the first week, so I have a lot of work to do, but at least it's the fun kind.

So I found this lady via facebook who makes really cool personalized family necklaces, plus she's one of the nicest people I have ever dealt with. So I ordered two of these:

One for each mom with grandkids' names on them. You can find them here on Etsy. The quality is great and the lady is just so nice!

So here are my Friends with Flair birthday cards to go with fabulous gifts:

Both were made with My Mind's Eye paper, PTI cardstock, twine, and gem thingies, Basic Grey buttons, and American Crafts embossing powder. The twine on the first card was kind of unintentional. I was trying to see if I wanted it there and accidentally glued it- so there it stays!

Have a great weekend- this weekend starts the 3-month "everything is covered in holiday decorations" time for our house. Yay!
