Truthfully, I am rich beyond measure even without winning the lottery. I have God who, just because I am his own dear child, has blessed me in countless ways. I have family and friends who are counted among my dearest treasures. I have food, a home, and even pin money to spend on crafting supplies. So I'm already rich. Many of us are if we just stop and think about it.
One of my treasures, Alyssa, turns 21 on the 26th. Boy, my son, her father, is getting old!! Not grandma! And I got this little idea for her birthday card when I saw Laurie's card over at Muse. She came up with something bright and fun, and I immediately thought of the 'measuring tape' ribbon I had in my stash. Here's Laurie's card:
And here is my twist on her fun card:
Sorry about the photo. It's a rainy, overcast day here and no matter what lights I used, this is as good as it got. If the sun comes out later, I will try reshooting it, and edit this post. All of the papers are scraps, including the card base, but I know that that is SU. I used SU ink with my Jillibean Soup stamps and fussy cut the arrows and sentiment. The lady is Studio Calico, and I made a little yellow dress for her to pick up the yellow in Laurie's card. Measuring tape ribbon and that's a wrap. Happy dances everyone.
