4 Crafty Chicks & Tuesday Morning Sketches #59

Hi Everyone!
I have 2 challenges that I participated in today. First challenge is from 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge blog and this weeks challenge consisted of fave!
The colors they chose this week are so bright and cheerful! It really got the wheels turning in my The second challenge is from Tuesday Morning Sketches #59...this is a new blog that I came across while blog surfing the other day. So this will be my first entry to their challenges.  I also decided to ink up the new Birthday Bakery Level 1 Hostess set that I haven't used yet. (Want to get it for FREE?? Host a Stampin' Up! Workshop with me today!) So here is this week's sketch:

Anyway, I decided to make a Birthday card for my sister, Sam, who turns 24 on Saturday. She'll prob see this post before then, but I just had to do it! I added some glitter to the card to make it extra special for her too! :) Happy Birthday lil Sis! Love you! And did I mention that she is also pregnant?!?! She is due a few days after me on December 7th. And I'm going to have a niece! Yayy! I am sooo excited to have our babies (the cousins) grow up together! I'm hoping they'll be the best of friends, too! :)
