Chapter 2013, page 5 of 365

Ok, I am back....first I just want to say how much I enjoyed myself this afternoon with my friends....awesome folk....Gail, Rosie, Clay and V....loved the time we spent talking, laughing, joking and eat.  Thank you all!!!!

Now, I need to post some cards for a challenge over at Lindas Blog - Studio L3 - for Tim Holtz birthday, using any techniques and as many as we want out of his books The Compendium of Curiosity, vol 1 and 2, which can be found here and here.... not read any further as it will spoil your surprise....come back on the day we see you!!!!!!

Since Althea and Tim share the same birth date I thought I would make a pair of cards that were almost the same, so I used all the same elements on both, and just changed them up a little, like their names and the wording inside is slightly different.

just in case you cannot see the wording, it says this on both cards

do you know just how lucky you are to share a birthday with my sister?

and on her card I prefaced it with

so I asked him

and that about does it for tonight!  bye bye

Very fun cards. I love the texture fade you used. Also - great idea to use the words to make your greeting.
