HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY, KELLEY!! - Silhouette Cameo

Well, Hello Everyone!!  YES, I am alive and have been suffering from a severe case of a lack of creativity - much to my Mom's displeasure!!  She has tried her best to inspire me but to no avail! 

Well, I had to come out of my funk tonight in order to make one of my best friends a card for her 50th birthday.  Kelley and I have been friends for over 20 years.  When I turned 50 in April, she was at my surprise party.  She turns 50 on Friday and she's taking the day off work to try and ease into the half century club - probably in bed with the sheets over her head!! 

Kelley and I have a lot in common and one thing we both love is Vera Bradley.  So I got her a Vera wallet for her birthday.  I tried to match some of the colors in the wallet in the card and the gift bag.

I downloaded the 50th birthday card from the Silhouette Online Store and cut it with my Silhouette Cameo.  It is so simple to use the Silhouette that you don't really have to be very creative - which is a good thing for me right now.  Just load the mat with paper attached and hit the cut button on your computer and voila, a card comes out. 

I cut the card to fit a 5 x 7 envelope and then cut the rectangle frame at 4" x 6" for the gift bag.  The 50th birthday is another download from the Silhouette store.  I popped the 50 for extra emphasis - teehee!!

I hope Kelley will like it and I know she will love the wallet.  I also put 50 pennies in the change pocket because it's bad luck to give a wallet as a gift without money in it.

Well, thanks for stopping by today - we appreciate your visits and your comments.  Until another day - God Bless You!!  Donna   


  1. Great card and bag. That beautiful wallet should take some of the sting out of turning 50!

  2. Love that you used the colors of he purse as inspiration for the card and bag! So pretty! TFS Christine

  3. Great idea to use the color of the wallet for her card. I am sure she will love both.



I appreciate your comments and visits. I hope you will come back soon.
