Sister History/CPS 149

After a wonderful church service tonight, I came home feeling somewhat creative.
I mentioned a couple of posts ago that for my birthday last year, my friend Donna made me an album for keeping track of birthdays and cards.  I have a habit of not using new things at first - and didn't really use it last year but have been busy filling it up this year!  I have many of my January/February/March birthday cards made already.  Tonight I used the CPS 149 sketch to make my sister's birthday card.  Here's what the inside will say:  So, we didn't actually wear dresses and we didn't have a cat BUT we sure did some whispering/plotting in our time.  Like when we shared a bedroom with Samantha and convinced her that after she fell asleep, we hit the magic button on our bed and visited Santa at the North Pole?  Or later, when we kept secret the parties we were going to?  Yup, we've has some sister history.  And I'm so glad you are my sister.  Happy Birthday!
The stamped image is from a ten-year-old Stampin Up! set.   The brads, words and paper is from Close To My Heart (I love the new Veranda paper!) I also used the SU eyelet border punch. And the ribbon was from a free set that I got from Archivers several months ago and hadn't even opened (it is a set of ten earthy color spools - one of the best freebies Archivers has offered to date!)

Thanks for taking a peek!  Hope you have a wonderful Sonday,
Marie with a :-)

Oh my! Love that stamp. Very vintage and your paper and colours are very well chosen. wish the stamp was back on sale. I just love the old fashioned childrens' stamps. Crafty Secrets are doing some now and I'm after them.
HB to your sister. Sure she'll love her card.

Marie, love your card. I have 5 sisters and we are all such good friends this card really speaks to me. I notice you are back blogging and happy to see all your creative artwork. When you gave up blogging you deleted your followers so I guess I am still able to follow since I didn't delete you from the blogs that I follow. Learn something new everyday, they say. Happy Sunday.
