Freshly Made Sketches #147

Hi everyone,

This is my second post for today!! Please scroll down for my Create a Smile post!!

Happy Wednesday!!
Sorry,i am little late today.I am a little busy at the moment.
My brother suprised me last thursday from the USA! :)
I had NO clue he'de be coming over.Actualy we wanted to go over to visit,but it just didn't work out.
He already knew for the past 6 weeks,that he'de be coming.i had no idea.I cryed like a baby,when i saw him standing in the kitchen when i got back from grocery shopping! :) He is not just my brother,but also my best friend!! SO glad to have him in my life!!!
He'll only stay 2 more weeks,so i really wanne spend as much time as possible with him!!!

A pic of me and him we took on saturday! :)

Ok,on to our new Freshly Made Sketches Challenge!!
Today our hostess is the amazing Jennifer Timko!! She created this very fun and awesome Sketch!!
Loved working with it!! :)

First thing i thought of,where candles!!
For the flames i used the leaves from Clearly Besotted's Simply Quilled Stamps and Dies.The sentiment comes from this Set as well.The banner comes from Basic Banners,also from Clearly Besotted!!

other supplies: Carta Bella - it's a celebration Papers, Hero Arts - Brush Stamps - Shadow Inks, Jenni Bowlin Ink, Twine, MME - Enamel Dots, Wink of Stella

Hope you'll have time to play along!!

Oh, Cindy, my eyes are filling with tears at how awesome your brother is for surprising you with a visit! I can just imagine the shock and delight and HUGE welcome that happened when you saw him in your kitchen! A most fabulous prize for most FABULOUS you! WOW! Your card is, as always, so ingenious, pretty, clever and amazing! Once again, you've elevated 'simple' to stunning! You rock (and that's why your brother did what he could to make you feel extra special...you rock as a sister, too!) Mega hugs to you - and to him for being a super brother!
