Family Ties

Happy Thursday! Here's another Family Ties card, this one made with the adult set. I opted to make a card with the golfer first just cuz I think he's so darned cute. The sketch is another from Originals.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Cocoa, Barn Red, and Ocean cardstock; Sarsaparilla paper packet; Black ink pad; Desert Sand, Bamboo, Breeze, Brown Bag, Baby Pink, and Tombow #850 Flesh markers; Silver gel pen; Family Ties-Adults and Happy Birthday stamp sets; Rustic Edge Anchors; Sponge dauber; Sanding block; 3M foam mounting tape.

About those family ties, we've got a little family party going on this evening to celebrate Bjorn's fifth birthday, which was Tuesday. It's just Cameron and the boys, Dustin and Miranda, and Marv's mom for supper and cake. The boys are spending the night and most likely, tomorrow morning with Grandpa, until it's time for Bjorn to go to school anyway. I took a couple of hours off from work this afternoon to help Grandpa with party preparations. It wasn't necessary though. He had everything under control!

For now, I'd best go. It's almost "showtime." After a busy week, I'm looking forward to Friday and the weekend. I've got stamping and more stamping on my agenda and am hoping to have some fun stuff to show you. Have a nice evening and good day tomorrow. Later . . .
