Shhhh...It's A Secret

One Stitch At A Time Challenge #169

Good Morning My Friends,

Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday!  It is time for a new challenge over at One Stitch At A Time and this is a really fun one..."Not A Square."  I am having an "Old Crone Birthday Party" for a dear friend and scrappin' buddy who is turning fifty-five.  You are actually officially an old crone when you turn fifty, but any party after that can be an old crone party, you just get cronier.  Yikes, I just realized I am going to be fifty-six in September, I am really an old crone!  I love it!

I found this really cool digital stamp by Alipeeps Art called Keep My Secret and put it in this neat triangle shape.

Isn't that cool?  I have already sent out the invitation and all my girlfriends love it!

Here is a close up of the digital stamp.

So fun!
