No Fair!

Last year on my birthday, I reached the age of eligibility for Medicare. My sister Joany, born a mere 21 months after me, is celebrating her Sweet Sixteen birthday today on the last day of February 2016. No fair, I say!

I grabbed the scraps from my Valentine's Day project with Caroline and Emmy, and cut some hearts from what was left of Emmy's collage sheet. Folded a piece of card stock, collaged some tissue paper, drew some lines and doodles with ink, and softened some boldnesses with wax pastels.

Happy birthday, sweet sister of mine!

    1. Thanks, Laurie. Emmy's collaging, especially once scribbled, has made for very appealing cutouts, I must say.
