A little close up (although the colors are a bit off...)

Happy Birthday M

I created a card with a little pocket in it filled with two identical word searches (for Mary and her hubby Derrick) called All About Mary. Listing words I brainstormed about Mary.

scrapbooker (have you SEEN her stuff?)
reader (she is a book lover! i love being her goodreads friend!)
designer (yet again...have you SEEN her stuff?)
beautiful (photogenic, simply beautiful)
engineer (her pre-baby job)
married (to her DH)

kind (see above)
crafty (yet again...have you SEEN her stuff? check out what she did with her Yudu)
