Oh I wish you could all meet my sister. She's one of the best people in the whole wide world. Girl can sing, cook, craft, decorate, and is the second best grandma ever (I'm first, lol). Her birthday was yesterday, and I want to celebrate her a little bit. Next week, we're taking little Emma, Sue's almost three-year old granddaughter, out for lunch - she'll have chips and salsa, we'll have tamales and such. Emma loves chips and salsa! Then we're taking her out to buy paper. Sue and I are doing our best to help her become a craftaholic, and I think we're succeeding! It will be nice to have a birthday lunch... I need your help though. Do I call ahead to the restaurant and tell them it's her birthday and we'd like them to put on the sombreros and sing real loud?! Let me know what your vote is, and I'll let you know what we end up doing! You'd better not be reading this Susan....or I'll tell dad!
I struggled with her birthday card a bit. Made three yesterday, and hated each one of them. Literally threw one together today with the scraps from two of the cards, and like the way it came out!! Who knew???? Just works out that way sometimes.
And as luck or fate or whatever has it, I can pop this into three challenges! Woohooooooo!! ColorQ Challenge, CAS(E) This Sketch, and Curtain Call Challenge.
I kept this card very simple, but managed to use all the colors at ColorQ, and the CTS sketch.
I wish you could see this in real life. It's so much more pretty and delicate than this photograph shows. Made with scraps, scraps, and more scraps. Die cut heart from my Silhouette, an MFT notebook die for the scrap of SC vellum, and a scrap I think I got from Amy Tsuruta. A SSS sentiment with black versafine ink. And that's about it. Am going to run now, and watch my Cubbies lose to St. Louis today. But that's okay; the Cubs have won the first two games of this series. I won't be greedy! (yet).
