Happy Birthday, Daughter!

My oldest daughter turns 28 in a few days.  I can’t believe it!  It seems like it takes forever for them to hit mid teens and then time flies.  I lose track after 17-18 somehow.  Anyway, I love and miss her (and her children!) and hope to get to see her (them) sometime this year.  There is something so unfair about not getting to enjoy your grown children and grandchildren.  Enough grumbling for now.  Here is the card I made for her.  Now that it’s finished it doesn’t look like her to me but I think I will send it anyway 🙂


Here’s What I Used:
Stamps:  Simply Sketched,
Paper:  Rich Razzleberry DSP, Cottage Wall, Whisper White, Watercolor paper,
Ink:  Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Marina Mist,
Accessories:  Sponge dauber, fine point marker, Old Olive Button, Rich Razzleberry grosgrain ribbon, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border, Chalk Talk die, Aqua Painter, Corner Rounder punch

Have a great summer day!  Thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods!

Paper:  So Saffron, Basic Black, Whisper White,
Ink:  So Saffron, Stazon Jet Black, Memento Tuxedo Black,

Simply Sketched Calypso-Cantaloupe

I’m sharing a card with you that I made in a very short amount of time today.  I think the whole thing from first thought that I needed a thank-you card to then picking colors and stamp and then finishing took no more than an hour.  And I had to open the supplies as they were just delivered!  I’m pleased with the way it turned out for not much thought!  Hope it inspires you!
