Happy Birthday Nana!



It's my nana's 96th birthday this weekend!  It's that absolutely amazing. Her mind is so very sharp and she truly has a zest for life. Getting out doesn't out of the house doesn't happen that often for her these days, but she certainly continues to live life to it's fullest. She's happiest when she is creating. Over the years, she has knit, painted, made incredible sequin fruit and hand painted silk scarves just to name a few of the things she does!  This card is in the mail with a wish for a wonderful birthday and lots of love.  I wish she didn't live so far away so that I could wish her happy birthday in person. The layout of the card was inspired by the current CAS(e) this Sketch. The background paper does have a subtle pattern, but you can't see it in this picture.

I think your Nana and my Mom would get along famously. Mom is also 96 and has done some fabulously creative things in her life. Your card is a bright and cheery celebration of a wonderful woman. Not to mention an HM over at CTS.
