Unique Birthday for a Unique Lady

Have you ever sat in a meeting, a class, or  simply relaxing and you get a vision in your head of a drawing or something you want to put on paper?  It happened to me for the first time in ages.  I mean, I’m seriously not crafty, but people think I am because I make cards, coasters (out of tiles).  I didn’t invent them, I simply copy and share what I see.  Anyway, back to my sketch.  I was sitting a class a few weeks ago and I just had to draw a picture of a sketch that exploded in my head.  Well, it looks a slightly different, but it’s a good match don’t you think?

I used my sketch to put together today’s birthday card for my sister-in-law who is a very unique lady.  She has had the same job for over 20 years working for an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Feliciano S. Navalta.  I haven’t met someone else, besides my dad, who has worked for the same employer at the same location all these years.  Wow!

People often comment to me about how crafty I am.  It actually makes me laugh because I don’t consider myself crafty.  I can’t even draw stick figures to save my life… LoL.  That’s when I get really excited about sharing my love of making cards and other crafts.  I love the feel of paper, I love cutting, snipping, and shaping paper to make it come together.  I’m not so good with color combinations though.  You can say I have a cheat sheet, it’s called a Color Coach.  Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy with their Color Coach.

Let this coach help you put together custom color schemes to express your unique creativity.  Whether you want a quick reference of all colors in a collection, a card for every color, or blank cards to record your own color combinations, this swatch book is for you!
