19th annual 29th Birthday

Right after New Year's Day things from the past year become old. Resolutions are made to let go of old things like habits, clothing, or clutter. You realize that you will become older. It's time to celebrate anything old with the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

How many times can you celebrate your 29th birthday? I gave up after my 10th annual 29th birthday. Now I celebrate my annual 39th birthdays!

I have made a birthday card for someone old, with one of my oldest rubber stamps from River City Rubber Works.  The ladies are colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.  The "balloons" are hand drawn circles with embroidery floss and Remnant Rubs.  Finally the sentiment is from my computer.

I managed to get a bonus card done for this challenge.  I was looking through Tumblr and found this drawing of Lady Violet.  I asked the artist if I could color her and share her on my blog.  The artist is Sirach and here is the link to his Tumblr blog  Thank you again, Sirach!

Want to play along with the Sisterhood? You have until January 22 at 11:55 p.m. EST to share your "OLD" project HERE.  Please also stop by and see what my Snarky Sisters and our current guest designer, Cyndi, have have made for your viewing pleasure.  I'm sure you will get a giggle or two.

As always, thanks for stopping by my blog.

Both cards are great, the first reminds me of my Great Aunt and my Nanie super job. Love the look on the the face of the second card's old lady and that sentiment is Fabulous.

I just adore both of these cards! The first one with the two old bitties and that sentiment? Perfection. And OMG it's Lady Violet! I can't love this card enough!

I do not resemble any of these fine ladies… at least not yet. :D Just brilliant, and bonus brilliance marks for Lady Violet!
