Olive Juice

"Olive juice" translates to "I love you"... I can't remember where that came from, but it's been in my vocabulary since high school, and my sis just said it to me the other day.  So I made her a card!



Supplies and notes:
  • Did some inky soaking with Shabby Shutters and Forest Moss DIs
  • Wrote "olive juice" with a Tombow brush pen
  • Inked an Inkadinkado martini stamp with Ranger Archival in Jet Black
  • Added Glossy Accents to the glasses
Ta-da!  Sister will love this.  She is going to my BFF's bachelorette as well-- think about it: Sarah's been my best friend since 5th grade... Kiki, being my twin, has been right there with us for the last 25+ years.  Whoa, trippy... Anyway, Kiki has done lots of the work for the bachelorette (I'm the MOH, but I'm busy as hell, and my twin is, like, totally fun and cool and got way into planning this thing!)  So I owe her a thank you.  Well, I owe her about 20 martinis, but this card will do until the party weekend!

Sorry for that life story.  Now you know.  

Anyway, I plan to enter this adorable card into the following challenges:

  2. WOW, Mimi, that background couldn't be more perfect for those glossy martinis (that would have me glossy-eyed after the first sip *grin*). Love the background story of your sentiment and you bet your sister will be tickled pink to receive this! Request for wedding photos...want to see you in your MOH role!
