Painting The Town Red

I had the honor of celebrating a special milestone birthday with my dear Aunt Mary this past weekend. She was so surprised and excited about her celebration--it was too cute!  She is the one who always plans something for everyone else and makes sure that others make memories to celebrate their birthdays. Well, it was finally her turn to be celebrated.  Thanks to my sister, who planned the greatest gathering with the theme of “Paint the Town Red”.  We spent time downtown and even a day at the “Red Door Salon”--my Sis really took care of every detail!  I couldn’t pass up this opportunity to create a special one-of-a-kind birthday card for my Aunt while keeping the theme.  This was a really fun project and took me back to the days I played with paper dolls... Ahhhh--memories...
Stay inspired,

  1. I love this card. Fantastic looking. Neat, bright, clean, "happy." It's perfect for a happy birthday for your aunt. Makes me (and maybe everyone who sees it) feel happy!

    Saw it on SCS and wanted to check out your website, too.
