Happy Birthday Sandra Sue!

Gerry Morse is my humor muse so decided to CASE her today for my dear friend Sandy’s Birthday.  She also used a Bugaboo image and it’s JJ, so it was meant to be.  Here is Gerry’s card http://stamptv.ning.com/photo/cooking-with-wine?context=user JJ Cooking with Wine. And here is my take on Gerry’s card.  Since my image isn’t really about wine, I kept the cardstock white but for detail I used a new Spellbinders detail emboss die set for interest.  Now for the rest of the story…

I had a little time today, so got a birthday card made and off to a dear friend who has her birthday on Ground Hogs day.  Sandy has a very good sense of humor, so thought this would be a good fit.  This very humorous image is from Bugaboo called JJ Tequila and Shoes instant fun and the character is JJ.  JJ reminds me of “me” with the reading glasses perched on her nose and silver hair, like mine.  Colored her in pretty grays and reds and created the sentiment using Photoshop Elements 9 from a funny joke in the newspaper that I filed away.  Thought it would work well with JJ here.  The birthday sentiment is from GinaK Designs Framed Greetings stamp set.  So Happy Birthday dear Sandy, I hope you like it.

  13. Great card Barbara!! Thanks for the mention. I'm a little late on commenting because after we got to MN I came down with pneumonia. I'm feeling better and am back to "directing" my daughter & d-i-l on cleaning out cabinets, closets & such. Can't wait to get back home.
