Birthday Time on Friends with Flair~

Yes, it's official...another year has gone by!
Oh my gosh, birthday just snuck around the corner and here it! And how fun, it is also Unity Stamp Co, Friends with Flair Friday! Did you see the fantastic saaaaaale going on at Unity?

My friend Jill's birthday is also today (it's so funny that we actually have the same birthday, except...yea, I'll admit it, I am a bit older than she is!), and we went to lunch yesterday to celebrate. I made her this card:
(If you NEED this stamp set...I've got them in stock @ Jen's Cup of {ippity) *wink*
and I just adore my Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 papers 

Inside the card, I paper pieced the girls to dress them up a bit, 
and the birthday greeting is from {ippity} Party Hat Wishes

I'm really loving my Fiskars Upper Crest Border Punch!
Don't you love that border?
I received it from my Fiskar friends when I attended the Fiskar's get together in was so nice to meet some fellow Fiskar's crafters!
