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!
