2 cards, thanks to hubby

You know I love the PTI MIM challenges. Debated using my foam tape for a little leaf, but gave in & bought a piece of Fun Foam.  Not sure I've ever used the Sizzix alpha dies I got years ago on clearance for just a couple bucks.  My brother-in- law has been working 6-7 days/wk for a year & 1/2 & way over 8 hours/day with help being promised but never given.  Now there's cause for celebration as he sent his resume to a couple companies & BOTH offered him jobs! I discovered 4 of my Copics that match PTI inks: New Leaf, YG67; Summer Sunrise, YR04; Blueberry Sky, B23; Hibiscus Burst, RV19.  The PTI set is Framed Out #1.  I was working on the card late, showed hubby the letters y, a, h & he said it's y, e, a, h.  I finished the card & in the morning had enough sense to look up the word. 
Turns out there are 2 different words, so both of us were right.  I made the second card like I originally planned using the PTI Take 3 die. Realized I could send "Yeah" (YES) to my sister--inside says "You got your husband back!" "Yah" (HURRAH) is for my BIL. The "yippee" stamp is an old one from Hero Arts.  
These were really fun to make & I think my family will get a kick out of them. The YAH card is going into the cards for guys gallery at SSS Wednesday.  I used some scraps, so will enter at Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for visiting.
