My oldest sister is turning 90 in a couple days and since there is no mail on her birthday I sent her card a bit early. She should have received it by now so I am posting this card I made for her. She is a fun gal who has a great sense of humor so I went with a more humorous type of card. I think she will love it too! I began by stamping and die cutting out 90 candles. That was a task but it was fun because I was thinking of her while doing it. You can see 89 on the card front and the last one is inside the card. The candles were stamped and cut out with the Impression Obsession Stamp & Die Block Duo. I did sets of different colors and then mixed them all up on the yellow card base. I also added some clear drops on a few of them so try to make it look like dripping wax. I am not sure that was quite as successful as I wanted but what is done is done. I think a white drip would have been better though.
I computer generated the sentiments. Here is a photo with the close up of the one on the front.
Do you see where the candle was dropped and burned the corner of the card. I simply tore off part of the card in all layers and with ink tried to make it look like it was scorched and burned. My hubby said I pulled it off at any rate and he is always one to let me know if it looks okay or not. So I went on with the design inside the card too and on the back as these photos below will show.
And here below is the back of the card.
I must admit this did take me a few days to make but it was a fun time for me and I wanted to do something special for my big sis. I hope she will like it and get a great laugh from it. Since we are in this pandemic her children decided a card shower was in order and I am glad they are finding some way of celebrating with her.
We had a busy week here. Hubby had surgery on Tuesday and was pretty sore and miserable. Then Thursday we went for our Covid shot and I also went for my wound care appointment. Since he could not drive my wonderful sister-in-law was so gracious to take us to our appointments. We only live about a quarter of a mile from each other and often we try to help each other out when it is needed. So it is pretty handy. But things are going a bit better now and hopefully in a couple weeks my man will feel more like himself again with vigor and energy. As to the Covid shot we did not seem to have any bad reactions from it. I think I might have ached a bit more but then that could be because I skipped my Tylenol too.
Anyway I hope all of you had a great week. Sorry I was missing in action but I was busy otherwise. Take care and enjoy your weekend.
God bless, Verna
