My Mother turned 90 on March 19th and we celebrated her birthday big time on March 20th. We rented a really nice venue, had a really nice program centering around her and the love she has exemplified to each of us, her children, grands, great-grands, great-great grands, and the spouses of all her off-springs. My nephew was so instrumental in getting so many things done that I really wanted to make him a nice 'Thank You' card to show my appreciation.

I decided to use SC105 from Splitcoaststampers to build my card.

Card Recipe: All Paper Supplies are Stampin' Up!
Card Stock: Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive
DSP: Brocade Background (Retired)
Accessories: SU! Hodgepodge Hardware; SU! Big Shot Machine
Dies: QuicKutz and Spellbinder

I decided to try two challenges in one over at SCS... the weekly sketch challenge (SCS273) and the monthly Christmas Card Challenge.

The DSP is Cloud 9 Design's "Sparke Trim the Tree". the other card stock is from Stampin' Up! I also used the Stampin' Up! Ornament punch and Real Red Ink.

Blue Bird of Happiness

I decided to try my hand at the FS161 on SCS. This is the card I cased: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1088683?&cat=500&ppuser=5417. It's either really early or really late depending on your point of view. Now that I have done this card, I'm going to go to bed. I'll upload details later today or tonight.
