For a special woman at Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, this fortnight's challenge over at Sweet Stampin' is to create something for a special woman, of course it could be a Mother's Day card- no one is more special than your Mum, but it can be for any woman you want to celebrate- and it doesn't have to be a card as long as there is some stamping included. If you hop over to the challenge blog you'll find plenty of inspiration from my lovely teamies.
It was both my sisters' birthdays last week- yes both in the same week and on consecutive days! 
This is the card I made for 'middle sister' - the crazy one! She's brilliant, always cheerful and fun and one of the most caring people I know despite often being in severe pain, she's suffered with Rheumatoid Arthritis since early childhood and has limited mobility- but it doesn't stop her making the most of life, and you can't help smiling when she's around! 
Her favourite tipple is gin -hence the card!
The gin glass and lemon slices were magazine freebie stamps, they stamp beautifully unlike some of the freebies you get! The sentiments inside are Creative Expressions and I used various alphabet stamps to create the sentiment on the front.

While I'm here, this is the card I made 'little sister'- the baby of the family- she's only 4 years older than my daughter, so I guess I've always treated her more like my child than my sister! There's no stamping at all on this card- The images (love them-so fun and quirky!) are from Elena Zinski Art, and I used the pre-coloured versions. The sentiments are computer generated.

Thanks for visiting- I'll be back later today!
