Happy Birthday Card

I  have the most wonderful family.  I know we all feel that way, but sometimes I tend to take them for granted.  I really do have the best extended family.  The downside is that they are a long plane ride away so visits are once a year, if we're lucky.  Email, Skype and phone calls make them feel a bit closer, though.  I had a great phone visit with one of my cousins on Friday evening.  Two hours later, the family connection felt very near...made me smile.

My card today is for another cousin...a 40th birthday.

I'm linking this to Really Reasonable Ribbon 'Fun 4 Fall' challenge to make a fall card with ribbon.

Patterned paper:  Authentique (Blissful)
Die Cut:  Circle and scallop, Spellbinders
Ribbon:  Michaels
Brad:  Recollections

Thank you for dropping by today.  I hope you enjoy some family time soon, weather your family is near or far.
