When I moved into my new "studio" I found a bag of cards that I made several years ago.  I have been going through  those cards  and  repurposing what I can and making a new card.  This has been fun and makes me remember some very fun times I had designing them.  Have you ever done this?

This card is made using a very old (and favorite) Graphic 45 paper.  Sure wish they would make it or something similar again..  There are so many pretty papers in this set.  I also wish I could find The Perfect Day Stamp.  It is a JustRite Stamp and I have the set, but not this stamp.  I made my daughter a card using it before her fire and she kept it on her fireplace mantel and told me that every morning she would look at it and remind her that is is going to be a perfect day.
More memories.

My good friend is receiving this for her birthday.

Nothing like Graphic 45 paper! It's fun to remake something out of old and you have done a great job of showing us "yes it can be done"!

This is just SO pretty. I just pulled out very old Graphic 45 yesterday too for a card! FUN. You'll find Perfect Day when you LEAST expect it! Happy fun-birthday to your friend.

Great card! Joan.....a book, a cup of tea, and a nice cozy chair definitely make for a perfect day for me! Hope you find 'A Perfect Day' stamp.....keep looking!

WOW! This is so pretty, Joan! I also adore Graphic 45 paper and your card shows it off so beautifully. Your friend will love it. Did you know you can check eBay and Amazon for old Justrite stamps? They're still in business so maybe you can write to them to see if they have that stamp set laying around. LOL I've done that before, and sometimes it works! It may be worth a try.
Thanks for sharing your perfect card, for a perfect day. Love it!
