A 2 Occasion Day!!

Happy, happy Friday everyone! I'm back w/ my mojo squarely strapped on, LOL! Sometimes ya just need a breather to clear your head, YKWIM!!? Tomorrow is my daughter's 13th birthday (egads, I'm feelin' old already), so tonight she has having her 3 best buds over for a sleepover. I'm taking them to the movies to see "17 Again" although I'm not allowed in the same theater--I've been banned, LOL! So hubby, me & Riley are going to see "Monsters vs. Aliens" in 3D (which will surely give me a migraine, 3D makes me fuzzy, how 'bout you?). So we compromised on her presents and got her a netbook and some giftcards. The netbook is a little cheaper than a full laptop and has everything she wants including a webcam so it will work for now :o) And since she broke my camera the other day (SOB), I now have to scrounge money up to get another one--and I REALLY loved my camera :o( And on Sunday we're off to the Baltimore Zoo for the day--its supposed to be in the mid-80's all weekend (Yay) so I'm thrilled! Alrighty, enuff chitter-chatter from me today, hee hee!

So, today I made 2 cards using this week's SCS sketch challenge #225--I really liked it! I finally got all my new PTI goodies the other day, so I had to break them out to play! This PTI set "Men of Life" isn't new (just new to me) and I have soooo many occasions to use this set for! I made this card for my dad for this upcoming Father's Day (yes, I'm wayyy ahead of the game). He has a sailboat and loves spending time out on the Chesapeake Bay fishing & sailing--and he retires on the 30th so my mom is hoping he spends lots of time on the boat (get my drift) LMBO!! Anywho, I really like how this turned out! The dp & cs are from PTI and I wrapped some twine around the card and attached a Blue Moon fish charm to it!

The boat was stamped twice, I cut the second set out & popped it up w/ dimensionals & then applied a good layer of diamond glaze on top! Aren't those star buttons fun? They're from my large button stash :o)

Second card uses the brand, spankin' new PTI set "Tea for Two"--I have soooo many fabby ideas for this set! But today I just made a card that can be used for multiple occasions including Mother's Day! I flipped the sketch this time & used some new PTI dp called "Green Tea Leaves"-so pretty! I stamped one of the teapots onto vanilla cs & then colored part of it w/ a green copic to match the PTI "spring moss" cs. I added some red & cream pearls and also some diamond glaze on top of the teapot!

The ribbon is from PTI and I made my own hatpin using some beads from my stash & this gorgeous handwrapped silk bead (soon available in multiple colors at Susana's store)! I just love it!!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend--I'm sure I'm in for a loud & sleepless nite (w/ 4 teenage girls boppin' around, lol)! See ya back here tomorrow!




  1. Gorgeous cards! Love the red and whites in them. How fun! Love the sailboat and the twine is perfect for it. Great fish! And that teapot is so inviting! Do you think it would hold coffee?! Enjoy the girls. Pretty soon you'll be having their graduation sleepover and they'll be off to college. Enjoy the weather!
