sending you sunshine

I made this card for my brother, who's stopping by tomorrow for a cookout here with his daughter Jessy. He's being a sweetie and picking up my Mom on the way. Tomorrow's my sister's birthday so I think I'll pick up a cake, tho' she's working and not able to join us ... bummer! We talked quite a bit on the phone today but I miss her - she's going to school a couple evenings during the week and works weekends; I work weekdays. It doesn't seem like we see each other very often lately .... sigh!

The kind folkes at Caardvarks issued a Drink Up! challenge this week requiring participants to make a beverage-themed card. Well, ya'll know how much I'm addicted to challenges, right?! I wanted to give my brother something tomorrow so figured a small card was in order, and I'd not used this cute lemonade die cut in ages! What's it called when everything in the universe seems to be in alignment?! ... hmmnn ...

stamps: A Muse Artstamps' sentiment, SU's Sun Moon & Stars; paper: SU's Yo Yo Yellow, Vellum, and Whisper White cardstocks; ink: StazOn Jet Black, Tri-C red watercolor marker; accessories: polka dot organdy ribbon from one of Jody Morrow's ribbon shares, QuicKutz lemonade die cut; tools: QuicKutz Squeeze
