Celebrate {the day that gave me you}

Also known as my Aunt's birthday, which was yesterday =) On Friday, I'll make my annual flight over to Saskatoon for my weekend of fun with my Aunt. In lieu of a gift, I fly over and we enjoy each other's company for a weekend. It usually involves some meals out and quite a few drinks (those SK women can handle their alcohol!)

Anyways, I'm excited and I used the "Anything Goes" challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters to create this card for her birthday. I used the Mojo 175 sketch for the layout and started off at my friend Marisa's for a color challenge idea (the Inkspirations design team always has great creations!), but ended up deviating from the colors when I stamped on white instead of vanilla and didn't have the other three colors of paper so I made up my own version - pretty in pink, chocolate chip & mellow moss.

Hoping to get in the rest of the Viva la Verve challenges before Thursday so I can get my name in for the new Verve goodies in the next release. We'll see how that this rate, I likely won't even make it into my craft room tomorrow. LOL! Stop on by the Sisterhood of Crafters & show us your creation....because this week, anything goes!


  1. Thanks for checking out the colour challenge this week and doing what you had to do to make it your own :) Love the scattered bling and your ribbon treatment is wonderful :) I'm sure your aunt will love it. Enjoy your weekend with her :)

  2. sounds like a fun weekend planned...agreed, SK can drink all of us under the table...maybe NFLD is the exception! LOL Love that sentiment and think it's from Love's Flower as I just used that set last night and just love this one and the fabulous one :) Hope you can make the other challenges...just use the same paper and embellishments and KISS!!!

  3. Your weekend sounds like soo much fun! So jealous of the food and drinks too :) The card is just a beauty and I love the little bits of bling!
