Happy Birthday to Theresa

Hello!  Welcome to the Virtual Birthday Party for Theresa.  I am so glad you came.  If you're here because you just came to visit me, well, let me tell you what you walked into.  Today is my sister Theresa's 50th birthday.  But what makes this even more special is that we're also celebrating her 5th birthday of being a Breast Cancer Survivor.

So some friends have gotten together on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to throw her a party.  There's even a challenge, too, that will run the month of October.  All you have to do is create a birthday & pink themed card or project and stop by and visit the birthday girl and you're in the running for a fabulous package of blog candy.  I won't picture it because I keep adding to it.  LOL  But I will tell you that the wonderful, Diana Crick of Scor-Pal donated a Scor-Pal score board to the candy box!

So here's my card that I made for my sister....


The happy birthday is on the inside.  I'd made this for the MFT challenge a couple of weeks ago, so it's been posted to SCS, but my sister never goes there and she didn't say anything because its on FB, too,  but I don't have the inside pictured because it's already personalized with a private message.

And here's one of my gifts to her....


I have always wanted a tattoo but I never got one because I never knew what I wanted.  Then it came to me the other day that with Theresa turning 50 and 5 I needed to do something like this.  Sassy is what my kids call her, but I like that it's not only her name but an attitude.  LOL  I will eventually have the flowers colored with a favorite color that represents my 3 children, my Mom, my other sister Karin and myself.  I don't think after that's done, I'll be getting any more.  The artist I went to did a phenom job, I am so happy with this.  Now if it'll just stop stinging!  LOL

HAPPY BIRTHDAY THERESA!!  I love you!  And I am happy that you're still here!  And I do still have one other gift for you, but it's going to be late.  I'm so sorry.

Gorgeous card - you definitely know me. I love it!! You're right I have a hard time with Splitcoast (even though I pay for it, it keeps kicking me out). I'm rarely on Facebook!! You're so awesome for putting that gorgeous tattoo on your body - now it makes me miss you even more. I love it. Thank you for this great birthday surprise.

Melissa, you are such a great sister..and i love how you've taken the time to honor her publicly! I like how you added the words to the front of the t-shirt...and the embossing. The tatoo..all i can say is ouch...but i like the honoring. :)

What a fantastic card! I love the t-shirt die cut, and it's so pretty against that pink layer. Now, about the tattoo...that's such a sweet thing to do, and the design is beautiful, but you are so much braver than I am. That had to smart!!!
