Sisters Soaking Up the Sun


This weekend my sister and I met half way between our homes for a little getaway to celebrate our birthdays (mine in Aug and hers in 4 days).  We have had a great time in Cedar Key, FL...we have eaten our share of the local clams, walked on all the trails, taken a boat ride to an island that is only inhabited by mosquitoes, and chatted like to girls who haven't seen each other in a while!!  What a great weekend with my sweet sister!!

So, I made a card for today before I left home for this fun weekend and here is it....

1 card inspired by 3 challenges...

Hand Stamped Sentiments // #HSS398 ...A sketch challenge!!  Like Leah on the design team, I flipped the sketch.  My get well sentiment was too long to fit the other way.  I do wish I would have re-cut my circle because it ended up being too small.

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc387 ...A technique challenge!!  CUT IT OUT!!  I did just that and hand cut my elephant and my sentiment!!

Cupcake Inspirations // #CI552 ...A cupcake inspired challenge!!  The cupcake photo for this current challenge gives us a safari animal theme.  I picked an elephant for my card!!

  1. So fun to see a landscape version of our sketch, Deb! I love these little animals so much, too - so fun! Thanks so much for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments!

  2. A cute take on our sketch - love that little elephant. Your time with your sister sounds so precious - I lost my older sister in 1999 and would give anything to be able to have that time with her. Thanks for sharing your card with us at HSS
