Celebrate!


Good morning, all!  Today I'm playing along with the Lawnscaping Let's Party challenge and the CAS-ual Fridays In A Word challenge.  

The gals at Lawnscaping are celebrating their 4th year of challenges with birthday themed cards. I remember when this challenge first started - I can't believe it's been 4 years already!  

Over at CAS-ual Fridays we're to choose a word that describes what you hope for the New Year.  I thought Celebrate was pretty appropriate for a lot of reasons.  We're celebrating the end of mom's treatment and how quickly she's recovering and getting back to a normal routine.  We're also celebrating an upcoming trip to the Azores to visit Luis' family - we haven't been in 4 years!  And in general, life is really good so what's not to celebrate?  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Handy Hippo
Patterned Paper:  (Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm 6x6) American Crafts
Stamps:  (Balloon from Admit One, Letters from Quinn's ABCs) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Punch:  (1" square punch) Marvy Uchida
Sequins
