It's SO Blue

This week the theme for the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog is BLUE. Well, that worked for me. I needed birthday card for my younger daughter whose turning 42 on Thursday(this doesn't mean I'm getting old though).

For this card, I chose this image called Sassy Sally and Her Oversized Birthday Cake. When we SKYPED with our daughter and our grandson tonight, we saw her birthday cake. It was a Star Wars 6" cake with 10 cupcakes(seems the cakes are always to please the grandson and not the parent). It certainly wasn't as beautiful a cake as Sally has prepared. She is colored with Prisma Color and Faber-Castell pencils, blended with Gamsol.

The papers are from the Serenity, a digital kit from Just So Scrappy 2. Susanna Boyd's newletter from PaperCraft Planet showed a digital card creating chevrons made with squares. Well, you all know me, I'm not going to cut anything with a pair a scissors, if I can use my Cameo to cut and that's exactly what I did.

Are you surprised that I beat my usual 3:30 on Monday afternoon posting? I want you all to know, that I passed up cleaning house to make my card. Now aren't you all impressed? Guess that's what I'll be doing at 3:30 on Monday.

  7. Do you know what the definition of house work? Housework, an obtrusive interuption to the pleasures of the creative process. Non-productive nuisance and a royal pain in the patoody, Please avoid it at all costs.

    Your mittens and hat look so comfy and warm. Enjoy them.

    Happy Birthday DD.
