Twenty Times Two


Hey there!  There's nothing quite like a girls' night to make a perfect Friday!  Good food, good drinks, good company...  This is what it's all about!  That and a little belated 40th birthday celebrating for one of my oldest and dearest friends!  Her birthday was last week, but I thought I'd give her her card in person when I saw her!

I colored up Birthday Cake Sassy from Sassy Studio Designs for the occasion.  I used my Copics and partially fussy cut the image for that "out of the box" look.  The papers are My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy Boy, but I liked the 70ish feel to the colors and since we were all born in 1973, I thought they were perfect!  I kept it pretty simple to show off the sketch, which is from Feeling Sketchy (#71).  I just added a few flowers and a bling flourish.  The sentiment is from Graphicat Designs (who is currently on indefinite hiatus).  It was cut using the Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics from My Favorite Things.



I really can't believe that we're all the big 4-0!  It seems like only yesterday when we were in high school together!  Now we all have kids!  And some of THEM are in high school!  For real!  I took 40 pretty gracefully, I think.  After all, age IS only a number!  And most days I still feel 20.  Even if my driver's license says my real age is twenty times two!

Have a fabulous night!

Markers used: Copics (E00, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E31, Y23, Y28, Y32, Y35, R20, R32, B00, BG10, BG15, BG72, YR02, YR04, YR07).
