Birthday Greetings!

Zum Geburtstag!
Yes, this card is in German! :)

I have known my dear friend, Imke, for a few years now and
she is truly one of the sweetest, most generous ladies I've met online.
My husband and I took our kids traveling on vacation to Europe for the summer a few years ago and I was literally a few hours from her house!
That would have been a most joyous meeting,
but I am still hopeful for one day! :)

Imke hosts a monthly image swap with her group and I was
very blessed and grateful to be able to join in!
They started in January so I'm playing a bit of catch up.
I was lucky to have a very similar image in my files
so I thought I'd create a card for Imke and get this in the mail.
Zum Geburtstag is a very friendly birthgday greeting to wish
mostly a ... "For your Birthday"

Here is a side view ....

{For your Birthday}
I'm still trying to figure out this new laptop.
It truly is outsmarting ME!
From the photo editing features to the keyboard,
it may as well be in a foreign language like my card ;)
I like to say that's what I have 3 teenagers for *smile!*
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
This is my 39/100th card.
