Happy Birthday Justin & Festive Friday


First off, I have to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my brother!! My little brother...I can't even express how much I love him & how proud I am of him!! He turns 25 today, so that must make me what...27? 28? HA!! No!! Mom decided when I was senior in HS to expand our family (I know, I know Mom!! 2nd marriage & surprise!!!) and at 17, I got the brother I always wanted!! SO even though he is 17 yrs younger than me...We are closer than some people are with their siblings who are around the same age! I was always his "2nd Mother"! He makes me so proud of him for all he has already accomplished! Oh I could go on & on...but I will stop that part & start my crafty post!!

Welcome to Festive Friday!! Today is the day the DT over at My Cricut CraftRoom makes fun, festive projects!! It is finally Friday!! TGIF! I don't know why I am so excited for it to be here...I have a stamping party tomorrow & still need to get the house cleaned up, and the rest of the projects finished! =/ But I know it will get done & the party will be so much fun!!

Back to today's project! I, of course, had to do a Christmas card for today but decided to use non-traditional colors! I used a "new-to-me" cart that I borrowed from a friend..."Ribbons & Rosettes" I am in love with this cart!! I just love making rosettes & this has so many to choose from!

How fun is this?? I used Glitter Mist on the back piece and sprayed some on the rosette too! Look at that purple plaid ribbon...LOVE IT!!! I didn't use the medallion from the cart, I decided to use a stamp instead!
Here is a side view, you can see the shimmer on the embossed piece AND you can see how large this rosette is! Very tall!! But very cool! :)

Thanks for coming by, now you can head on over the My Cricut CraftRoom to see more Festive Friday!

Until next time...
