Especially number 50!!

Today’s card is part of a set of invitations I helped my sister make for her husband’s upcoming 50th birthday. She decided on a fiesta theme and I crazily mentioned a card I had made with a cute image from Hambo called Cactus…

Hambo Cactus 1

When she saw it, that was it. She wanted it! So we CASEd the card (never CASEd myself before hahaha) and spent the day together making invitations. My baby sister was happy and we had a fun day together so that’s all that matters but, WHEW, what a long day that was!

Oh did I mention it’s a surprise? So shhhhh….
