Happy 60th- Make Us Laugh!

The inside of my card says….P.S. I am still younger than you! LOL

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day! Have we got a great topping for you starting at Seize the Birthday!  Lindsey has asked us to ” Make Us Laugh.”  Who doesn’t like to receive a card that makes you laugh! Such a great idea Lindsey! However, if that is a struggle for you, any Birthday card will do. The toppings are always optional. I made the above card for my sister as she just turned 60 on Tuesday.  She really loved it! Especially the inside, which I have written for you above. I am the baby of the family and some say spoiled. LOL.

Shaker cards and I don’t always see eye to eye.  I always get the stupid idea to add glitter or something of that nature inside and it sticks to the acetate and becomes all milky and that drives me crazy. Well, I did it again. However, I did manage to get the majority of it out this time.  NOTE to SELF…Acetate and glitter do not work well together.  Then I also decided at the very end, to add the 60’s, and not sure that was a wise idea either. What’s done is done! Stay tuned as sometime in the near future this MFT Shaker die set may be for sale really cheap. LOL   Card was made with all MFT products! (Thanks to Barbara Campbell for bringing me the sentiments to let me use on her visit.)

Before I go, I would like to give a HUGE thanks to Julie for being such a fabulous Surprise Party Guest. We really enjoyed your work!! Please play along with us any chance you can!

PLEASE hop on over to Seize the BIrthday, as I am sure you will get a chuckle or ten out of the team’s cards!  Nanc’

Sip Sip Hooray!

Hello!  Vicki is our hostess this week at Just Us Girls and she has a great photo for us. As soon as I saw those wine glasses on the table I knew I was going to break out one of my new MFT sets ( Margarita Shaker Die and Spirited Sentiments) and make a shaker card.  The only thing that completely backfired is, I decided to finally open up my Gelatos that I have had for ages and see how they worked.  Little did I know, or use my brain, that they smear when you rub your finger over them.  So now my background paper that was once white is now pink. If you know my style you probably know that I don’t do shaker cards very often, but it was fun.  If you look closely my margarita glass has sugar on the top (fine glitter)…I prefer sugar over salt! What about you?

Please come over and check out what the ladies did, and before I go I would like to say thanks to my pal Linda for being such a fabulous guest this month! Nanc’
