Stampin up stampinup stampin pretty family photoToday’s cards are a simple duo destined for my sisters (twins) who are celebrating a milestone (60th) birthday this week.  They are easy to spot (left and right) in this family photo (approx. 1961).  Yes, that’s “yours truly” in the middle, back when I was a natural blonde.  My mom is in the middle and my oldest sister at the top.  Several of the Stampin’ Up!

I used this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO268) as my foundation.
