Toasting Special Days...

Hubs and I celebrated San Jacinto Day with old friends at a local eatery. it was tinis all around (mine was a delicious lemon-drop martini).

And for dessert, chocolate brownie and ice cream for 4:

Saturday was a gorgeous day here, but Friday was a bit scary for awhile, as we had strong wind gusts and sideways rain, thunderbolts and lightning, very very frightening!

The birthdays keep on coming in April. This one for a sister-in-law:

It's hard to see in a scan, but I added plenty of gel and glitter penning.  

I also used a Stamper Corners sketch for the design. The papers are all from my Blackhole of Stash.

I also scallop-punched one edge of each of the overlapped paper strips, then edged them with the gelpen. It adds a nice texture and interest in person, but it also is hard to see in photos. The diamond 50 is also a punch. I handcut the paisley on top and outlined it as well.
