This is weird

Today is my MIL's birthday. Congratulations, Barbara! I hope you'll have a lovely day. I was really excited to show you the card I made for her. I searched through my complete 2008 photo library, but couldn't find. Did I accidentally delete it? No, not in the trash. So, I must have forgotten to take a picture of it. It feels really weird, as this hasn't happened to me before, as I was convinced I did take a picture of it. I'm quite bummed, as I was quite proud of the end result. Anyway, I can't show you the actual card, but I drew a sketch in PS:

I used these digital papers for the sketch. For the actual card I used SEI, leftovers from Hayley's LO. For the sentiment I used Making Memories Mini Alpha stickers, like in this card. And as I do on most cards I embossed the background with Basic Grey clear stamps and psychedelic powder. The flowers and butterflies were handcut from the PP. Hopefully that way you can imagine what it looks like.

Today's picture is from this morning when the boys were playing soccer and the girls were in charge of putting up signs for our garage sale tomorrow morning. However, after we put up the signs lots of people already dropped by, which meant we already sold for a couple hundred Dollars today.

May 31st, Garage Sale:

I just would like to let you know that I already made a card with your wonderful sketch. You can find it on my blog. I also used the sketch for the bi-monthly card sketch challenge on the D&D forum. Thanks for the inspiration, Lisette!
