Happy Monday, peeps! My birthday card stash is about non-existent, and I need to replenish it, so when I saw the GDP challenge, I went right to work!
I CASEd Shawn's sketch, using Over the Moon and Bird Ballad papers for my card today:
After stamping and coloring my little cow with some Blends, I stamped the hat from Crab and Company (remember that set?) and popped it up on her head!! I added some Tufted embossing on the background:
A little pop of Basic Black scallop to give some contrast (Be Mine dies), and I recycled some silver cord from a gift package to match the rhinestone on her party hat!!
And finally a sentiment from Rustic Retreat along with a couple more hats, stamped in Calypso Coral:
And this one is already out in the mail for its recipient! Thanks for popping in!
So, my sister Gail, who lives in SC, turns 60 next week and she and her husband were in the area over the weekend for the Army Navy game on Saturday (her son attends West Point). I thought it would be fun to have the whole family over for a "sort-of" surprise party for her! She arrived first, but when she saw the table set, she was surprised! Everyone pitched in with the food and we chowed down:
She and my other sister caught up on some photos from the game:
Of course, we had to have cake; my niece Kelly contributed a beautiful Boston Creme pie/birthday cake (that's my brother next to her), which is one of Gail's favorites:
AND, Kelly also created these stunning cupcakes:
She is so talented! It was a great evening, and I'll share more photos later! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
