MTS130 and CCMC412

Happy Monday, peeps!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  I've got a pretty little birthday card for a sweet lady in my church who will be celebrating her 95th birthday!  I chose the sketch from Match the Sketch and the colors from Create with Connie & Mary:


I wanted to use the pretty By The Shore DSP because I just love that starfish pattern, so I pulled out an older retired set called Beautiful Beach and went to work:


I used the banner punch to create the banner; I stamped the horizontal pieces with the "grid" from Best Birds; I diecut a scalloped square of Pool Party with the new Layering Squares Framelits, and stamped some splatters from Gorgeous Grunge; and finally, I stamped the starfish in Blushing Bride:

I added a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and a few sequins from a Paper Pumpkin kit!  Now it's ready to go in the mail!  Thanks for peeking in today!

We had the Life Celebration for my FIL on Saturday; it's always a sweet reminder that even though we are saying goodbye to a loved one, the future generations are there to help us wipe away our tears! Cassidy and our nephew's son Zion made us all laugh....Cassidy delighted in making Zion giggle and helped his mommy feed him...she'll be a good mommy someday herself!  And look at that...they even dressed alike!

Have a blessed day!
