Happy Birthday Sis!

Morning hens!! Thursday is actually my sis' birthday but I have two cards for her this year, so I thought I'd post mine first since the other (from my Mom) is doing double duty as my That's Krafty Thursday post! Ya know, as soon as I saw this image at Stamping Bella I knew it would be for my sis' card! OMG, this is SO us!! She's older than I am and I was ALWAYS bothering her. Mom used to make her take me places and boy would she ever complain! She'd say, "Do I hafta?? Oh Mom, she's such a brat!!!" Tee-hee!! I LOVED IT!! But don't feel sorry for her, she'd get me too... We slept on bunk beds and I had the top bunk, so she'd take her feet and kick the bottom of the top bunk and almost fling me out of it!! Hmmph!! Of course today, we get along like two peas in a pod!!

So for my sis' card, I stamped this image called "Stepsisters" from Stamping Bella onto some Bella's Bestest Paper and colored it with my Copics. I matted the image with some SU Basic Black and stitched around the edges. This DP is from Basic Grey's Marrakech collection and I stitched it to some SU Brocade Blue CS and then onto the SU Basic Black cardbase. My sis' favorite color is orange so to finish, I tied this pretty orange saddle stitched ribbon into a cute bubbly bow and there ya have it! Happy Birthday Sis!!

Be sure to leave a cluck below and lemme know what ya think, k? Oh, and don't forget to drop back by the hen house tomorrow for my Stamping Bella NEW RELEASE card!! You won't want to miss it!! Have a SUPER DUPER Tuesday! {{{hen hugs}}}

Supplies:
Rubber Stamps - Stamping Bella; CS - SU Basic Black, Brocade Blue, Bella's Bestest Paper; DP - Basic Grey Marrakech; Ribbon - PTI; Copics

  6. That could be my sis and ME!!! Only they'd be blonde and I am the older one. (Sorry) I would tease her by scratching the wall in the dark BR and tell her there was a MOUSE. She would freak. LOL. Today we are best friends. I love the funky, fun papers and orange bow. Too sweet. Hugs...
