When I was 9 years old, the eye doctor said I needed glasses - badly! I remember having to sit in the front row at school because I couldn't clearly see what the teacher was writing on the board. Well, I was excited to go to the eye doctor and get this very first "personal embellishment." My mother helped me pick out a pair of red and white striped glasses - what was she thinking? I certainly had no fashion sense at that age and thought they were fantastic. Looking back at photos of myself at that age, I realize they really were not that attractive on me.
When my sister started making cards, she decided to send me a card to remind me of those glasses. I don't recall exactly which cartridge she cut the glasses with (was it Nifty Fifties?) but this card really made me smile when I received it. What are sisters for if they can't tease each other about their fashion failures?!
The next card I'm sharing with you today is an Easter card I received from her. Isn't it cute? She told me that she had gotten a great deal on some Easter-themed brads and was using them for her cards this year. I loved the patterned paper she chose and the little felt bird embellishement.
The decorative pink strip was made with a border punch and nicely showcased the Easter brad.
Great work, sis!
Hope you enjoyed these two cards from my sister.
Remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
