A Couple of Cards

Tomorrow is my daughter's 30th birthday.  The card is in the mail.  Tomorrow is my brother's 19th wedding anniversary.  The card is in my head.  :)
 Blogger may be "new and improved," but it's still flipping pictures willy nilly. 
 This came in the mail for me a couple of days ago.  I liked the wrapping, a lot.
 The contents were even better.  The vase is similar to some glassware that my mom had when we were growing up.  This is one level taller than hers.
Finally, I finished the quilting and beading of my Hoffman.  It is currently drying.  I'm trying to get it to lie somewhat flat.   I'm scared to get it very wet, as most of the silk ribbons and embellishments state that they are not colorfast. 
Tomorrow I bind, sleeve, label and ship.  My label and sleeve are ready, and I've picked out the binding fabric.  Perhaps, if all goes well, I will be done by noon.  Goals are good!
