It's Show Me Thursday at Sassy Cheryl's!
I put all those colored images to cards. My style is pretty simple though, admittedly, I LOVE the gorgeous fussy cards. Maybe it's lack of patience, maybe it doesn't feel like me, maybe it's because they cost a small fortune to mail, or maybe I just don't have the vision...but, my cards are just, well, simple! The bottom one is about as fussy as I get! I made the little flower-whoo hoo! My friend, Shirley, punched bunches of the feathery leaves for me-it's an old Martha Stewart punch that I'd truly LOVE to have but can't find anywhere!
I hope you are having a GREAT week. Many of you are preparing for Christmas as am I. This year, we're going to try and keep it simple---remember the reason for the season. Christmas is about LOVE, hope, new beginnings, joy, and PEACE.
Today is my brother's birthday! Happy Birthday, bro! I know he won't see this post, but I'm thinking of him, remembering some of his early birthdays. My friend calls this kind of memory, a "firefly memory." They come out of the blue, a bright light, a tiny, bright memory. When he was a very little boy, our father took him to NYC to see the Empire State building. Rick's take away- (aka Ricky during those years) LIONS---the lions in front of the NYC Public Library!
It's also my dear niece's birthday-surely, that had to be Rick's BEST birthday gift ever; a daughter born on his birthday! It's nearly a family tradition as I arrived one day before my Dad's 30th birthday :-) My niece is a remarkable young woman, a single Mom to three energetic and cute as a button, children!
So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Rick and Sarah!
Wishing you both the BEST of days
and a bright, happy year!
