One More Year as a TEEN

Morissa, my youngest (of five), will be NINETEEN on Wednesday!! Head shakin' CRAZY is what it IS. (grin)

She still likes zebra print, so I "pinked it" as a background to this year's bday card.

I used a new mft (My Favorite Things) die to make the rose. Really like the die -- just wish one were available at three sizes LARGER. The leafy flourish was made with another new mft die. The sentiment & punched shape were by S.U.! And, the sentiment mat was made with a PTI die. In the bottom-right corner is a sweet zebra-stripe gem, but it is barely visible in the photo.

Enjoyed making Morissa's card -- hope she likes it. (Seriously, as long as there is CASH inside, she'll be satisfied, I'm sure.)

THANK YOU, Melissa!

Melissa, the Office Manager at the YMCA, where I work, made CHRISTmas AMAZING for the ladies who work in the office!! She hosted an "Office & Spouse/Boyfriend" party at her church with a buffet-style dinner and "Dirty Santa" gift exchange. And, she gifted each of "her girls" (grin) a LOVELY wooden country-style photo frame! She organized an "all-employee" CHRISTmas party at the Y facility, complete with games and prizes -- LOTS of fun!

Well, I have wanted to make a "thank you" card to send her, but had to wait until I was healthy -- B-A-D flu going around here -- but, I'm finally healthy, so was able to spend this coooold Saturday afternoon making her a card.

I was smiling while I made it -- thinking of my online friend, Audrey, and my desire to accomplish the technique which SHE has mastered -- LAYERING. I gave it my BEST SHOT on this card!
