Happy Birthday, Sister!

I have a completely random card to share with you today. It's slightly inspired by some more "earthy" colors... Mellow and calm. And yes, they're the same colors from my card a few days ago. I'm lovin' this color combo! My sister practically lives in the great outdoors, preferrably in the backcountry, so earthy colors were perfect for this card.

Today is my sister's 24th birthday... And really, no matter how old she gets, she'll always be my little sister. So Happy Birthday, Sharon!!! I can't wait to see you in 2 days!

I'm officially down to one more day of work before my vacation begins. My flight leaves at 5pm tomorrow and I am Portland, OR bound. It's definitely going to be a whirlwind weekend, but most enjoyable. As mentioned, my sister's birthday is today and mine is this Sunday. My parents are flying up as well, so this will therefore be the first time in many years the whole family has been together for our birthdays. I think we're going to all go out to dinner on Saturday night and hang out most of Saturday. I know Sharon and her boyfriend have some fun sightseeing arranged for us. Not to mention the So You Think You Can Dance performance Friday evening, visiting my friends, and much more.

And there is no break upon my return to Southern California on Sunday afternoon. Since it's my birthday, a bunch of my friends and I are heading to Disneyland. They are having a special all this year where you can get in free on your birthday. Since I'm already an annual pass holder, they give me a $72 gift card(the cost of a one day admission) instead! Yay! Shopping in Disneyland is always fun!

Well, off to finish packing! See you back here on Monday!

  3. Still love this colour combo!! Is the Birthday from the Giga set but just rounded? I'll have to try that!! Have a great trip and if I forget, happy birthday on Sunday, but I'll try to remember!! Love the pic of you and your sister...any more sibling? I'm the youngest of 6!! Imagine our first trip to sister 3 years older and me in the cargo space of the station wagon...the 3 oldest sisters in the back seat and my brother between my parents in the front...can you say "Gravol!?" LOL

  4. Kristina, this is GORGEOUS. I just adore the way you've stamped the background, and the colours look amazing. Im seriously going to have to get me some PTI goodies I think!!!! Shipped all the way over here to Australia!!! Oh and HAPPY HAPPY Birthday for Sunday. I'm sure you'll have an amazing day/weekend celebrating. Enjoy Disneyland too.
