Vintage Lady - Bonne Fête

Hello everyone,

Yes it's been a long time since my last post, 12 days to be exact. I've missed crafting so much but we had extremely nice weather here in Montreal so being outside was my first priority. My 8 and 4 year old boys wanted to be in the pool and of course so did Mom and Dad. Plus I have a big circle of friends and family who pop by to use the pool as well..LOL..of course I welcome it, the more the merrier!!

Today I crafted because it was chilly and rainy, perfect weather to craft!! My inspiration was my mother-in-law. It's her birthday on Saturday. She wasn't here for her 60th (they go to Portugal for 4mths every year) so we're having a big BBQ to celebrate her 62nd birthday this weekend and of course I needed to make her a very special card.

To do that I used a great sketch and some other great ideas from fabulous blogs.

Here it my creation:

Isn't it gorgeous? I just love it and I know my MIL will too!! I know I've already used this image and trust me when I say I do not have a shortage of them..LOL!! but I just thought this would be perfect for my MIL!!

The sketch I used is from The Crazy Challenge blog, I just fell in love with this sketch!!

I am entering the following FABULOUS challenges:

I hope to see you again, sooner rather than later..LOL!!

Good night
and remember to...
love & create ...with a smile :)
