Happy Birthday Stupid

Now for those of you who follow my blog, you know about my sister and her antics. Her bunny ears in pictures, and how when we were little she always got me in trouble. Hey isn't that what big sister's do. But no matter what I still love her. As soon as I saw this image at Sassy Cheryl called Very Sassy Opinion which you can find HERE, I knew it was perfect for her and this is why. When we were little, she told me that when she stuck out her tongue it meant she was calling me stupid. So there we were sitting at the table eating diner and it was nice and quite and what do you think my sister does.. You got it, she sticks out her tongue. So I say "Ma, Laura called me stupid" to which my Mom says, Laura didn't say anything stop trying to get your sister in trouble.. So she does it again, and I say "Laura called me stupid again" then you see that know that smirk...Ha Ha I got you in trouble. This went on for a few days before my mother caught on.. then guess who got in trouble... So Laura my sweet and loving sister..Happy Birthday... I love you and this card is for you.. I went for the vintage look because I found these gorgeous digital collages at an Etsy shop called
Iralamija Shop. She has gorgeous collages to down load, I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them, and will probably add an element to all my cards whether it's a small ticket or one of her gorgeous postcards they really are a must have. You can find them HERE

Awww, your story did make me laugh :)

I was the 'big bad sister' in our house, and even if my lil' sister was quiet and playing nicely, I would march past her room carrying her things just to make her chase me! I got beat up when I got caught, but it was so worth it! :D lol

Love your fun card, what a smashing image! :)

It's great to have a sister, isn't it, doesn't matter who got whom into trouble, I used to have fights with mine till we went to college...OMG and now we are like...sisters:)) I think this is such a wonderful card to bring back memories; it's so great to find an image who actually fits so well a past memory! Love the vintage look and that postcard tag. All in all it looks gorgeous! Your sister will treasure it!
