Happy Birthday Alyssha & Somer!

Hey everybody! Well I am probably enjoying myself at the Bed & Breakfast (I typed this a few days early.) But I wanted to post this. If you haven't noticed...we have A LOT of Birthdays in August! And today is both of my sisters birthdays, but they are not twins, they are 7 years apart. I always thought that was the coolest thing! :)
My sister Somer is having her daughters birthday party today and we will be unable to make it, since we already had plans this weekend. We will be going to visit Sunday for the day when we leave the Bed & Breakfast. So since I won't see them on their birthday, I sent their cards in the mail. I already posted my sister Alyssha's card here, but I wanted to share Somers card today. I made all their cards when I got Lawn Fawn's new stamps in and it just so happens they will have a swimming party! :) So it worked out great and these stamps are so much fun to play with!
I don't wear two piece swim suits anymore for modesty reasons, but in my younger days...this would have been the swim suit I would want! :)Here is a pic of my Mom, my sister Alyssha, my sister Somer, and me. It was taken about 2 years ago after church on Mother's Day. (I have a layout using this pic that I have been meaning to post and haven't had time, I hope to post it soon.) And can you believe I am the baby of the family?! My sisters are so short! :) My brother is missing in the pic, he was at his church that day, but he is a little taller than me.Supplies: Cardstock: Orange Zest, white, Hawaiian Shores ; Stamps: swimsuit- Swimsuit Season (Lawn Fawn), sentiment- You're Dandy (Practicing Creativity), polka dots- Polka Dot Basics II (PTI), houndstooth- Hero Arts ; Ink: Versamark (Watermark), Basic Black (SU!) ; Other: circle cutter (Martha Stewart), white embossing powder (Filligree), corner rounder (EK Success), circle punch (for waves)- EK Success, foam adhesive

Happy Birthday Alyssha & Somer! I love ya'll! :)

I hope you all have a Blessed day!
