Love to make BIRTHDAY cards!

Hello CRAFTY friends!  It has been a very cool and rainy day here in Georgia!  I don't mind the rain at all....but it makes me just want to lay here and do NOTHING!   LOL   Some friends and I went out last night to celebrate one of the lady's birthday.  I haven't been out in eons...but I had a blast!  Letting your hair down every once in a while is good medicine!  For my friend Lisa's birthday, I wanted to make her something I haven't made before which is etched wine glasses.  So, I pulled out the supplies needed....watched a you tube video or 2 and got to work........
here is the stencil I used...the R is from the Sil store.  I love the look of it.  
I made her a set of the wine glasses.  I really like how they turned out, but it is hard to see on the pics.I also made her a card and altered a gift bag for her.  The "R" on the bags is from the vinyl I used to make the stencil.  
My friend likes to shop.  The stamps, the daisy die and the butterfly die are from MCT.  The dress form is from the Fuse.  The step card is from Ginger Adams and the paper is from her line as well.  
 this is the inside of the card.  I love this font on this stamp so much!  I have used it quite a lot lately.
I Had to add some bling to the glass and her shoes...oh and also on her bag.  Added ink around the edges...and there you go.  Here is the gift bag as well.  
My oldest daughter loved the card so much that she asked me to make one for her friend whose party is tonight.  She turns "25"!   I remember that age!  LOL 
I do hope you like my projects today.  Thanks for stopping by.  I do hope you come back again!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
