I've missed the last few Blogger's Challenges...but how could I miss a designer paper challenge?! I use designer paper on EVERY card. This is easy peazy! And you didn't think that a whole week would go by without a Tilda card did you?

This card for my sister's birthday. Tricia will be 28 tomorrow. She is still single...does anyone have any cute and rich brothers for my beautiful sister?? heehee....I may as well be picky while I am asking!

My sister Katie's birthday is on Sunday. (I'll post her card Monday). Katie and Tricia were born 1 year apart. Kate was born Jan. 11, 1980 and then Tricia came along January 10th, 1981. They always looked alike. They even both fell (seperately) and damaged their 2 front teeth and they had to be removed when they were very young. They had no front teeth forever! LOL! They were so CUTE. They were 5/6 years younger than I...so they were also a huge PITA to me! Always wanting to do what I was doing...and breaking my Barbie's sunglasses! And no matter what, I was always "old enough to know better"...I think it was just like 3 years ago when my mother decided they were finally "old enough to know better"!! (UGH. I try hard not to say that to Orla when it comes to Maeve.) Tricia was such a goody goody too. Always helping my mom. She liked to clean up! Never arguing with my parents or her sisters. always neutral. She use to cry if Katie and I or my mom and I would argue. She'd cry out: Can't every one just get along?! booohooohooohooo... Not much has changed. *rolling my eyes* :)

When they were younger they were treated like twins. There was always 2 the same of everything. 2 Easter dresses...same style, one pink, one blue. 2 baby dolls...one dressed in blue and one dressed in pink. 2 doll strollers...one pink, one blue. Katie always hated pink and wanted everything in blue. Tricia was always in pink. I still tend to do this for them. They laugh at me...I can't help it! So of course Tricia's card is pink. :)

The pic was taken Easter circa 1984-ish...? Don't you just love the bunny ears?! heeheeheee! Weren't they cute?! (Tricia on the left. Katie on the right.) I am sure my mom appreciates me posting this gorgeous pic of her. How do you like ruffled blouse?! No pics of me in 1984....boy, was I an ugly duckling!! hmmm....seems as though I never really grew out of that stage!

Have a Stupendous weekend!!

OMG that picture is PRICELESS! I can understand your sister Tricia because I am the "peacemaker" or "goodie two shoes" of my family too.

Great card Kerry! You should know better, I use that one all the time on my oldest even though you tell me I shouldn't! He is suffering as the oldest with one parent being the youngest and the other a middle child! He appreciates you defending him!

I love your card! I will try to get cards in the mail for Katie and Tricia!

This card is so beautiful! All of your cards are great, but wow...I love this one! Great colors and coloring!

And it was nice to read about your family...I have daughters that are 12 months apart. I'm sure they'll get confused as twins a lot when they are older, although I don't like to dress them the same.
