Happy Tuesday to all of my friends! I am finally recovering from my last two trips LOL (I think anyhow). Yesterday was kinda foggy but I did get work done. Its funny to think that in the span of 11 days I have been up to NY and all the way up to Toronto, Canada and then all the way across country again—YIKES! But here is another great moment brought to you by Suzanne---got a bowl of Cheetos yesterday (yes, yes Cheetos—I know they are bad for you but I was in need of junk) and got a cup of ice for my Cherry Coke. So I’m pouring the Cherry Coke and I’m looking right at it and I POUR THE COKE INTO the bowl of cheetos---yes I did. And I didn’t just like start pouring and realize it, but I poured half of the can of Coke into the bowl before I was like “what the heck”!! LOL—now I have a bowl of Coke-Cheetos floating around, YUCK. And NO (before you even go there) I did NOT try and eat the mixture, hee hee---I DUMPED it out and got fresh. But that is how I operate most days—I do the DUMBEST stuff sometimes. Its like when I was in the restroom at O’Hare and I couldn’t get the stall door unlocked LOL—it was stuck hard and wouldn’t give! I’m in there thinking OMG I am stuck in this hellacious airport bathroom now, I have to catch a taxi and I’ll never get out and if I have to crawl out under the stall door across the dirty floor I will KILL MYSELF, SHOOT MYSELF and SANITIZE MYSELF! And yes I can totally see myself having to do this and I’m thinking please let no one see me or video tape me. Then I was banging on the door, literally with my sandal and got it open somehow—someone up above felt sorry for me I think---ugh! I literally think I am a nuisance & danger to myself—I’m amazed anyone lets me out by myself Its like all those times I put the salt or something weird in the fridge (come on you know you’ve done it too lol)---you just ask yourself “WHY?”! I ask myself that EVERY DAY I KID YOU NOT LOL!
**Diana is one of my sweetest friends and a great and funny lady to boot! I'm so blessed to have met her and have her in my life---she is truly a generous and beautiful person and I am lucky enough to call her a friend. So I'm sending a ton of Fabulous Birthday Wishes to her, kisses and hugs and hope she is blessed with lots of love, laughter and of course some fabulous gifts on her birthday!!
So since I’m bringing balloons I thought that lil’ Tilda should too LOL! This cutie is called “Tilda with Balloon” and the background stamp is “Balloon Background” (both are available in mini form too here & here)! My papers are from My Minds Eye “Fine & Dandy—Tickled Pink” collection---I love the fun collection of prints and colors. I decided to make a simple gate-fold card using my Scor-Pal – you can find the tutorial on how to make these here! I used one of the new Jumbo MS punches for the center border and the “Bella Rose” Heartfelt Designs die for the swirls/leaves (flowers were done with my Marianne Designs dies). Some rhinestones finish it off!
When the card opens this is what is on the inside—I didn’t put too many layers inside so the gate folds nice & flat. I embossed the side panels with a birthday themed CB folder and the sentiment is by PTI (Signature Greetings).
This cutie was colored with Copics R22,R20,Colorless Blender / BG72,BG11,BG10 / E11,E00 / E37,E35,YR23,YR20 / C1,C00. I added Stickles to the balloon, white shirt and dress trim and to the balloon background. Isn’t she a sweetie---just like Diana!
I bought a few of these fun wood letters at my Michaels store last month---I knew they would be fun to decorate in different ways. And “D” stands for the fabulous Diana These came painted a matte white but that wasn’t bling-a-licious enough for me so I coated it with Diamond Glaze and while it was wet I sprinkled my fave Deco-Art Glamour Dust on top. The glitter is super fine and it suspends within the liquid which looks so COOL! Then I added some matching flowers, swirls and rhinestones to finish it off. You could use this to hang up, prop up or hmmmm maybe some cool Christmas decorations!
