Many card blogs are featuring Valentines cards with the Christmas-New Year's rush over. My card would work well for Valentines and is linked to Time Out Challenge #126: Loving. But this card celebrates a birthday next week for one of the first friends I made when we moved to Oregon in 1973. Karen moved to a sunny, warmer state a few years ago but we visit each other at least once a year. She's not aware of my blog or Instagram so it should still be a surprise.
