Craft Day, Birthday Combo. Valentine banners, LOVE canvas and "Party Ttime" Birthday Card

Yesterday was a fun filled day from beginning to end.  I hosted a little craft day here with Julie and Jan. ( Julie didn't know it, but it was a great excuse to celebrate her upcoming birthday :)
Here's a funny little card I made for her for the occasion.

We started out the late morning with a bite to eat and great conversation.  Trust me... the three of us ALWAYS have plenty chat about. lol

The projects I had planned for us to do were both just easy, fun projects, nothing too involved. We get way too involved chatting and laughing for anything too complicated. ha. ( seriously, we do :)
We did these 12x12 canvases. The backgrounds are painted.  We used a stencil and white paint to create the pattern over the blue.  The papers we used are Fancy Pants Designs "Be Loved" Collection.

I was so busy taking photos of Julie and Jans projects that I forgot to get one of mine. lol  I snagged this one from Julies instagram of my banner.   These banners were the second project we did.

And then, here is Jan's banner

and, here is Julies.
Later in the day, our plan was to go eat at a place here in town.   Julie didn't have a clue what was going on ,but Jan and I had called ahead days before to okay it that we'd be bringing a cake, gifts ect .    We ate like nothing was going on, and then SUPRISE!
I can honestly say... she had no clue :)    It was good times!
These girls have me laughing non stop.   They are the best!  SO thankful to have them in my life!

Happy Early Birthday Juls!!!

Thanks friends for stopping by and letting me share are antics with you.
Hope you have a fabulous week!
