Autumn Mums

It’s my aunt’s 100th birthday and she deserves a special birthday card!  My aunt is a very special lady, she entered the Order of St Benedict’s in her teens and has devoted her life to others.  My aunt has always been a wonderful baker and to this day you can still find her baking bread – of course she doesn’t use any recipes!  She is definitely a young 100 – I can only hope to follow in her footsteps one day.

Happy Birthday Auntie!

Have you ever been in the situation where you just didn’t have the right color embellishment or ribbon?  Grab your copics!  I’ve used copics to color gems, ribbon, twine and in this case the silver butterfly – don’t you agree this butterfly is much prettier with a coppery sheen?

Thanks so much for the visit – I hope I’ve inspired you to give this week’s sketch challenge a try!  Dee
