Cheers!


Hi there!

I'm just popping in to share a little card I made for my brother's birthday, which then sat on my desk for days before getting in the mail terribly late.  Oops.

I couldn't resist the Free Spirits stamp set from Paper Smooches--perfect for many of the hard-to-create-for men in my life.  I just lined up the drink glasses, colored them with Copics, and added some of the cute accents from the set.

Some dots added with a white pen to make the drink bubbly, a simple "cheers" sentiment, and a couple of lines I drew with a black pen are the finishing touches.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Patterned paper:  Echo Park (stripes), Stampin' Up! (orange)
Stamps:  Paper Smooches (Free Spirits)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip), Hero Arts (Ocean), Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers, white gel pen
Tool:  corner rounder

I'm slowly trying to get caught up with all of you out in blog land.  My family recently experienced a couple of health emergencies which threw our lives into chaos for a few weeks, but the worst seems to be behind us.  I appreciate all of you who continue to stop by and leave such sweet comments, despite my irregular and infrequent posts!

Thanks for visiting today!

Oh, I hope life is getting brighter everyday. I'll keep your family in my thoughts! Your card reminds me very much of the card I usually give my brother every year! Brothers are difficult, but one thing I know he loves...so it's a no-brainer!
