OMG - She's 50!

This has been one of those weeks that has been wild and chaotic around here and today is no exception.  As soon as I get this posted I'm off to pick up the food and the big 50th birthday bash at my daughter's house.  Not a lot of time for the deets on this project so if you are interested in them please let me know and I'll edit this as soon as I can get back to it this weekend.

First I need to apologize for not being around the past few days and commenting on your blogs but this party and all the prep has really taken a lot of my time, especially with the eye problems I've been having.  GOOD NEWS, I got my glasses today and so far no headache and no blurred vision........YEAH!!!!!

No time to chat so here are the other two pictures, one of the inside and one of the box and card together.  I hope you like the card cause I think it's kinda cute since the theme of the party is "Margaritas and Fajitas".  I'm entering this card into the challenge at GraphicCat Creations.   A BIG THANK YOU to Eulanda (click on the link to see her card) for the inspiration for this card and the link to GraphicCat for the images.

Inside of Card with text blocked!  Too personal and mushy......LOL
Here is the box and the card.  Wouldn't have been complete without the box!

Thanks so very much for stopping by and I promise I'll get around to all of you sometime this weekend for comments.  I've missed you all and seeing your creations.  You are my family from afar!
