For You!!!

Things are getting a little busy at my house.... my youngest turns 19 tomorrow and is she "being special"... absolutely!! At my house... anyone's B-Day is special.... KWIM... it's the day you were born and brought JOY into the rest of the family. OKAY.... 19.... there have been moments of non-Joy, but, only fleeting!!! On top of that, just spoke with my little brother {that is the youngest of five, the other four older siblings are girls... can you imagine!!} and he is out Celebrating with my sister and his wife... Joanna!!

Enough of the gab {little sentimental here, hard to believe my littlest- is that a word?? has hit the big 1-9}. I did make a card for this weeks Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge...




My sis sent me a XMAS card yesterday (SU demonstrator) that was fabulous!! Had every intention of posting it here as it was the inspiration for this card and life got in the way. She used the same colors and SU Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  I'm still playing with Nutcracker Sweet from Waltzingmouse Stamps... image stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on vanilla and heat embossed with a mixture of clear and glitter {pic doesn't show the glitter} and layered on a Waltzingmouse Stamps Vintage Labels No. 10 added some crochet lace and the big ole' bodacious bow!!

Here's the sketch...



















TFL!! Enjoy when you stop by and appreciate all the kind words!! Busy time of  year but, also full of love/family/friends!!

PS....Dang, the embossing in black doesn't show up, sorry 'cause it is a gorgeous EF from SU!!
