Happy Birthday Sandie!



Today we're celebrating my gorgeous cousin, Sandie!  It is her 50th birthday...and she definitely fits the phrase of 50 and fabulous!  Our teammates over at Time Out are celebrating her so be sure to pop over and check out all the birthday celebrations.  We are having a special challenge to celebrate some of Sandie's favorites:  CAS with the optional twist of purple. Sandie's all time favorite color is purple. For her birthday card, I inked with different shades of purple after I embossed the background. The photo is a bit blurry but I think she'll like it with the touch of a couple of sequins.

I so wish that Sandie and I didn't live across the ocean from one another as we would have so much fun crafting, shopping and a sharing a drink or too. We're definitely blessed to be cousins and have had this wonderful crafting hobby to share together.  I love her dearly and am thankful to be cousins but even more to be dear, dear friends. Here's to 50 and a fabulous day Sandie!  Love you tons!

And PS if you play along with us over at Time Out, we have a $25 Simon Says Stamp Gift Certificate for the winner.
