Happy 80th

Next week marks my mother-in-law's 80th birthday and sometimes a cutsie card isn't the "right" card, if you know what I mean and thought this image was a tad more appropriate. I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned this before but I honestly believe that I have some of the best in-laws ever...they welcomed me into the family with open arms over 25 years ago, and I have blessed ever since.

A couple of weeks ago I noticed that Kim Yu was starting a monthly sketch challenge on her blog and thought I'd give it a try...I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with it until I pulled out some K&Co Speciality DP and it all went together nicely. Along with Kim's sketch, there's another great challenge at the Kraft Journal this week and it's all about "fabulous finds" and I have to tell you that finding this gorgeous DP at the local Goodwill for a couple of dollars was a fab find!

Kim Yu: Sketch #1
The Kraft Journal: Fantastic Finds

Crafty Secrets: Sew Special
Cloud 9: Happy Birthday

Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments, it's always fun hearing from everyone.

This card is perfect, De! And you're right, cutsie isn't always the way to go. But for your MIL's 80th... I think you hit the nail on the head with your card! Awesome, awesome, AWESOME!!
