It is my friend's birthday this weekend and we are getting together to celebrate. We are both teachers, and unfortunately, right now in BC it is not a happy time for our career. When thinking of a sentiment to go with her card, I came across this one: This Too Shall Pass, But While We're Waiting, Let's Go Have A Cocktail. Although I wouldn't typically use this saying for a birthday card, it seems to fit perfectly with the times. To brighten up the card, I used the fun colours at Color Throwdownand the lovely simple sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch. I am also linking up to the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of using clear stamps - and I even purchased both of these eye-catching sets from the Simon Says Stamp store!
