Interactive Birthday Card - the last one of this design for the year

Inside cover and first page
I haven't posted in a long while and have a bit of a backlog. Hopefully I will be able to get some more stuff posted soon...

Onto the Birthday Card - Under the ribbon is a crown pop-up card. The second page has a flap and a bunch of tags and quotes. On the divider is an envelope with a happy birthday banner. The large envelope under the flap holds a note or picture from family members. On the page under the divider are more quotes and confetti. The last pages have a rosette and a pocket with lots of goodies.

Life Notes - I ended up sending this card out from the States. It was almost done when I got the call that my mom had died. She had cancer for the second time and had felt great until just before her birthday. She died a few days after her 80th birthday. So that tells you the main event that has lead to why I haven't posted for a long time. Then, I spent some time with my dad while my husband and the boys went on our vacation. I joined them for our vacation and we got back a few days ago. Hopefully I'll collect myself together and get back to posting at least intermittently.

Have a great day!

P.S. People like Happy Mail when you can't be with them. For a short time, when they receive your mail, you are with them and they know you are thinking about them often enough to take the time to send them a note, a card, or even a postcard.
