Final Additions to Gift Collection

These two were the final pair in my collection of six for my aunt's birthday at the end of the month. The first used Verve's AnniVERVEsary AVS05 sketch and the second used S2GSC21 for Twisted Thursday, which I found about from Pat's blog, Stamp, Paper and Ink.

Stamps: Sincere Salutations
Paper: Parisian Breeze DSP, Kraft, Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Baja Breeze
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Ribbon, Brides Flowers, Brad, Nestabilities

Stamps: All Year Cheer I
Paper: Parisian Breeze DSP, Kraft, Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Antique Brass Brads, Brides Flowers

I did cheat a bit with the addition of my flower, but it was looking a little too bare. I did, however, use their twist, which was four brads, no more, no less =)

What a busy day I had on Sunday - a two hour trip up north for my niece's third birthday (yep, the cherry lover, who seemed to like the card enough, but was more interested in her tinkerbell be expected!) But with cuties like this, how could I not go?!
Birthday Girl

Brother of the Birthday Girl who was running a bacon & bologna shop. I don't know where the kid gets these ideas, but I bought POUNDS of bacon. LOL!

And finally, I got this face when I arrived, staying "I miss you" and wanting to cuddle....oh my, heartbreaker!!
I have a lot of sketches to catch up on, but I'd say it was worth it =)
