Saturday Sketch Challenge #237 with Sale-a-Bration Sneak Peaks

Being an active duty military member, I am only able to be a Hobby Stamper (for now), and therefore have to make cards a few days ahead of time.  This card is for one of my five brother’s who’s birthday will fall on a day while I’m way on temporary duty.  Since I won’t have access to my crafting supplies, I had to make it ahead of time.  Since becoming a Stampin Up demonstrator I started to dislike traveling because I love stamping so much I miss it when I’m away from home.  Next week I will be sent to Hawaii and I will not complain from not being able to get any stamping done.  I will not be able to post for the two weeks that I will be away enjoying paradise during off duty hours. =)  Needless to go on and on, I made this card for the Saturday Sketch Challenge #237 at Stamping 411.

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Patterns Stack (117157), Riding Hood Red (111348), Daffodil Delight (119683); Ink: Real Red (102482); Stamp Set: Sale-a-Bration (Jan. 24th) Fresh Vintage (Clear 125117); Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig (101049); Envelope: Whisper White 5 3/4 x 4 3/8 (107301)

The sketch seemed like something I could handle at my level.  What do you guys think? =)

A Well Worn Birthday

Brother #2 (Reyes) had a birthday last week, Jan. 6th… obviously just a tad  late, but never the less, he will know it was especially made just for him.  My brother is a very sweet and loving brother.  He has helped me out during times of trouble and has always been my ATM, my hotel, my mechanic, and my friend.  He is a great family man and his life got sweeter when he married my childhood BFF 20 some years ago.

Paper: Well Worn (122359), Basic Black (121045), Whisper White (100730), River Rock (108640)
