FORTY-SHMORTY Stitchery card

WHERE have I been?????...Oh My Goodness!!!...Well...the grandguys were here for two weeks...and I really dont know how in the world you ladies with little 'uns do it all! This Mama
( that's what they call me) is tuckered out...and have been CREATIVELY CHALLENGED for the past 14 days!
ANYHOO....here is ANOTHER stitchery from my friend in Canada , Connie...( the aunt to the twins album...50 pages..I just completed!).....She took a retired SU stamp set: Paris in Spring..enlarged it...stitched it ( EXPERTLY) onto muslin and sent to me with the request to make into a 40th Birthday card for her sister.
So, after adhering to heat & bond, then to cardstock...I attached to layered patterned paper & solid c/s from my stash. VINTAGE trim....and CUSTOM printed sentiment on vellum. I painted ( MM paint) rouge Chipboard and used some Heidi Swapp chip also.
Seriously....I feel Connie should get all the credit...since her stitching is awesome....I think we make a GREAT team.....she keeps me so busy, I rarely have time to post on EBAY anymore!
