Shaker Card Sweetness

Well, I'm crafting with Patti Lyn, my BFF of 40+ years this weekend; and when we get together, we are always SUPER creative.  We have been using the sweet line called Oh Darling from Crate Paper, and it is just TOO sweet.  Everything we've made has turned out CUTE!  Here's a peek:
This is a sweet little birthday card set.  Above is my card, and below is Patti Lyn's.  We had SO much fun making these.  The papers and embellishments in this line just make it SO fun to work with, so we really couldn't go wrong.  Machine stitching, frayed ribbon, gems, and soft sweet sequins adore this glassine bag that I folded and filled.  Patti Lynn made a tiny card to go inside hers, and added the six, which is also from this lovely Oh Darling set from Crate Paper.
Oh, the fun we've had!  I can't believe that she has to leave tomorrow already.  I wish she lived closer, but our time together is always precious and always filled with fun, giggles, laughter, tears and endless memories.  Not to mention, LOTS of cute projects as well.

I'm entering my card here:
