A sweet little boy had a birthday yesterday so I made him this card not knowing at the time that he just loves ducks!! He loved the card and I'm glad I made him happy!
I also entered this card in the sketch challenge on STV Release party. The cs and dp are GKD and the polka dots dp is SU. The image is from Rupa Shevde's Spring has sprung. Used nesties , colored w/copics and paper pieced the umbrella. added stickles to the water for "sparkle"!

Happy Birthday sentiment on the inside is from SU Hip Hip Hurrah

Okay...on to the next thing!

Color Challenge for GKD's Release party. Love the colors Lemon drop and tempting turquoise together. I "pieced" the quilt blocks onto lemon drop cs The images are from Nina Brackett's Nana's Needlework. The dp is from SU and also the tempting turquoise cs. The hinges on teh basket are brads from GKD Spring Mix Stamp TV Kit. I colored them with copics to match the basket. Stamped and cut out the shelf and fastened it to dp w/scor pal tape. Stamped basket on dp then stamped it on white and colored w/copics, cut it out and adhered to dp. I haven't put a sentiment on the inside yet..probably use as a note card. Haven't posted anything for a while...3 funerals !

Well, I guess I've still got some things to learn about posting on my blog! I gave each card a tag, but they all showed up together!! Well, guess I'll have to call Linda to help me out...again!! But to go on with the cards. The 1st one with the watering can I did for a challenge on STV. I used SU cardstock and dp, colored it with copics and used the nesties small triangle to cut it out. I used glitter on the water. The little flower is done with a punch with a pearl in the center. The eyelet is from the STV Stamp Kit by GKD and they work...all you need is the end of a pen to put them in! Great!!
This is the inside view. I used the grass from Sending Sunshine by Theresa Momber and the sentiment from Spring Mix Stamp TV Kit.

This is the inside of the birthday card I made for a friend and also for the Monday color challenge on STV. The watering can is from Rupa's Spring has Sprung set and the bd sentiment is from my stash. Use it A LOT! Isorta reversed embossed this...embossed and then turned it over and stamped sentiment on it. I added water sprinkles from the can w/gray copic marker.

This is the outside of my friend's bd card. I really like this set by Gina. The cs is SU and the dp is from the STV stamp kit. I nestied the circle and stamped the pot of seeds then paper pieced the pot so it would show outside the circle. Cuttlebugged the hat on yellow cs and added pearl to bow. The nesties label w/SMILE has one end cut off and put in the corner. Well, I'll see if I do better next time! Good night! Joan

I had a wonderful lunch Wednesday with 2 dear people..Diann, my cousin and Linda my niece. They hadn't seen each other in about 9 years! Diann and I arrived at the restraurant 15 minutes before schedule and decided to wait in my vehicle until we saw Linda arrive. At around noon I decided that maybe I'd better check inside! We had missed her! She had been sitting inside since 11:30 waiting! LOL! Our server came by so many times to take our order and we weren't ready that she finally said, "When I see your menus closed, I'll know your're ready to order!" We left her a nice tip because we were there until 2pm so she didn't make any money off that table! It was so nice to catch up with family!!Posted by Picasa

Diann and I got to the restraurant 15 minutes ahead of the appointed time. She got into my vehicle which was parked facing the door so we could see people going in. We watched for Linda until 11:55 and I told Diann, Let's go in..maybe she slipped in without us seeing her! SHE DID..She'd been waiting inside while we were outside! LOL! The server came by so many times to take our order and we weren't ready that she finally said, "When I see your menu closed, I'll know you're ready to order"! We left her a nice tip cause she didn't make any money off our table since we were there till 2pm!!
