First up are creations by Avie. She is one sweet child, and is funnier than all get out. She also likes to play in grandma's craft room. I am still finding bling and sequins all over the house, lol!!
This is the card she made for me; notice the tape runner where a shell, which I haven't found yet, has fallen off. The yellow sentiment reads, "I see you."
She loves shaker cards. I mean really, really loves them. So she made me a shaker baggie, with extra, extra tape on it just so the bits wouldn't fall out. Sorry for the glare, but you get the idea. Avie included a rainbow colored 'happy birthday' sentiment inside. What a girl.
We had cake which the girls and daddy baked. Not one, but two cakes! The boys decorated one and the girls decorated the other. Pretty darn good, I'd say!
Ignore the "63" on the cake... I'm sure which ever of the girls wrote it simply transposed the numbers, hahahahahaha! And after cake, we had presents. Here is what not only these four kids made, but when two of my boys and their families were together, all the kids made this:
Grant, Lily, Drew, Avery, Carter, Samantha, and Kaylin each painted a section, and Sam and Lily painted an extra one. It proudly hangs in my craft room. So there you have it. Now, let's have a gander at a card, shall we?
This came together super easily, as I thought that if I worked on a CAS card, my mojo might actually put in an appearance.
I die cut an Altenew frame and in the center, which was also cut, I stamped an NBUS trio of vases by a company called Simply Graphic. Love them. I used Juniper Mist ink from CP, and colored the water with Copics. A smidgen of WoS for some sparkle, an old HA sentiment and done. EZPZ lemon squeezy. I am going to play at Darnell's NBUS Challenge and at the Color Hues Challenge.
Okay. I'm done now. You all stay safe and healthy. I'll be back soon, and if the mind-set stays, I'll even get to some commenting today. Sending hugs, and as always...
