AHSC 63 - Happy Birthday Janice!!

Wow!  It has been a while since I last posted!  Hubby and I are adjusting well to the new chapter in our lives.  Herb usually golfs once a week and sometimes twice a week.  We are fairly well settled into our new home and love the idea that we are so much closer to our grandchildren.  We have had them over for a sleepover and enjoy going to their sporting events.  Sierra (9) plays softball on Mondays, Brooke (6) plays soccer on Thursdays and Amber (3) plays soccer on Saturday mornings.  Her Daddy is her soccer coach and he is excellent with the children on the team.  We took care of Amber last Monday and Tuesday as she was running a fever and was lethargic.  We are not sure what caused her to run a fever but she enjoyed all the extra attention she got from Oma and Opa.

My daughter Janice had a birthday on Thursday so using the AHSC 63 Sketch Challenge, I created a card for her which she got a chuckle out of.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:


This card came together very quickly.  The dark pink die is by Tattered Lace - Large Flourish.  I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Majestic Red Ink.  The inside sentiment which gave Janice a chuckle says - The secret for staying young is to Live Honestly, Eat Slowly and Lie about your age.  This is a quote by Lucille Ball. 

Janice decided at the age of 29 that she did not want to have anymore birthdays so this year is the 11th Anniversary of her 29th which makes her 39 years old.  She looks awesome for her age and just this morning took part in an endurance race:


With working full time, taking care of a hubby, 3 daughters and a 4 bedroom home, I do not know where she gets the energy to train for and participate in the races she enters.  I admire her a lot and wish her all the best.

Thanks for stopping by!

I really like how you used a die cut for the detail of this card. Great work, very different from everyone else's take on the sketch. Awesome! Thanks for playing along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
