LFF #48 - Happy 50th!

Happy Aloha Friday!!

Hope everyone had a good week and is ready to enjoy the weekend.  Seems like the last 3 months went by too quickly and Dec is already here.  Need to get hustling with Christmas projects if I want to get them out before the big day.  Today for Lilo's Fun Friday #48 I have a 50th Anniversary card featuring two cuties from Sister Stamps, Keitaro & Miyako.

Sorry for the ugly background.  I was in a hurry to make this card for my mom.  She tends to ask me for cards she needs at the last minute, only because I don't really keep these kinds of cards in my stash!  So I whipped out my Cuttlebug, embossing folders, washi paper, and glue to create the above card.  I paper pieced both outfits and colored in the rest.  In Keitaro's heart banner I wrote HAPPY and in Miyako's heart I wrote in 50th.  Since this was for a golden anniversary I used gold paper and washi paper with gold accents.  All in all the card took about 30 minutes to complete; coloring, paper piecing and all.  Whew!!  {haha}

Tomorrow the newest Sister Stamps, Chinese Zodiacs, will be in the Yumi & Fumi Handmade store.  We start off with two in the series, Snake and Horse.  Check out the Sister Stamps blog to see what Jenny has been up to and you might have some time to enter for a free stamp or two.  The entries start here.

This week's LFF #48 treat is a bundle pack.  One stamp, some washi papers, and some other goodies.  Just leave me a comment and I'll randomly choose someone.  Your question is What's your Chinese Zodiac sign?  I'm year of the pig, are we compatible?  Here is a terrific link to see if you're not sure; courtesy of the Sister Stamps' blog.

Mahalo for stopping by today and for being supportive with your lovely comments.  Happy Aloha Friday everyone, have a terrific weekend!!

Get out...30 minutes?!! Very clever to write Happy 50th in the banner and heart...I'm going to remember that.

I was born in the year of the Dog! I'm guessing the year I was born it was a big, strong, husky dog...not some kind of little fluffy thing you can carry in a purse?!!
