Acetate Birthday


Good Afternoon!

Bet you were wondering if I was going to show up today! I had to work early and have been busy since I got home! My card today is for Crazy 4 Challenges and Jugs 7. Crazy 4 challenges wanted acetate and Jugs wanted embossing and happy birthday. I have a granddaughter's birthday coming up so this was the perfect combination. Katie will be 15 on Monday. Amazing..... she was only 4 when I married her grandpa! Time fly's when your gettin old! LOL! My card base is acetate from taste of textiles. I used not quite navy and embossed it with the birthday folder. My ribbon is from walmart.

I have a client whom I will call the 6 haired wonder ..
his wife named him that! :>) Well the 6 haired wonder can build things out of wood! I saw a picture of an ink , reinker and marker storage unit on ebay I liked. So Bill, I mean the 6 haired wonder built me one. It cost me 11 haircuts. How cool is that? Wanna see a picture? Don't drool on your computer.... that would be really messy!


I put my pads and markers in color families. That way maybe I can learn to color and blend like the big girls! My sister Terri told me she did that with her markers. Great idea! That's why she is the big sister! LOL! Well I'm off to play with paper!

Have your self a great evening!
Patti

Beautiful card Patti. What a fabulous storage cabinet. Mary Anne is so funny!!!! I too like to organize by color families. Easier to find colors.
