It’s Your Birthday!

vlvdec4 

Good morning friends!!  I finally have a morning to myself and thought what better way to spend it but by having my coffee in the studio and making a card!!  We have blue skies here so there is a lot of beautiful natural light spilling into the room :)  Today’s card is for the last Viva La Verve December Sketch over on SCS.  Teresa is hosting this week and has given us a fabulous sketch to work with.  Now that Christmas has passed, I can focus on Winter/Snowflake cards :)  This card is for my second oldest sister whose birthday is in early January.  Her gift will be to come to the studio and pick out 10 cards :)  I do that for all my sisters now (I have 4!).  I am using that fantastic blinged out ribbon from Michaels (see this funky card, which BTW went to my 85 year old MIL!! lol).  I also want you to notice that shimmery The Cat’s Pajamas snowflake die (again!!) and how I stamped “Happy Birthday” on the ledger paper…I love doing that!!! It’s stamped in SU Going Gray so that it’s subtle and looks like it’s part of the patterned paper.

Lucky you to be able to get into your studio. Our company just left and we have a busy 30 and 31st so hope to get in and do my last Verve sketch for December. Love that snowflake die behind the sentiment and the picture of you and Jake is wonderful :)

Wish I'd come here yesterday before I placed my order....I love an extra 10% but alas...it was a pretty good deal anyways =) Stunning card - you really do make the most beautiful blingy cards with that awesome ribbon and that awesome ledger paper! You and The Joy are adorable together, Mrs. Midas =)

Beautiful card and such a great idea of birthday gifts for your sisters. Must be nice to have them all close enough to come check out the goods in the studio! Love the picture of you with your Greatest Joy! (Jake is a handsome young man!)
