Happy Saturday my friends! Hope you have a fun, relaxing weekend ahead of you planned. Amazingly I have NOTHING planned for this weekend, nowhere to go, no big to-do list…even I’m shocked…see my mouth hangin’ open as I write this?! THAT NEVER HAPPENS…but glad that it is cuz’ I need to get better before I leave for CT on Friday to teach…they NEED me to have my voice and to be standing upright LOL! Otherwise they will probably take pics of me and put them on the web saying I was drunk or some nonsense ahahahahahaha! I do need to run out to JoAnn’s and get a few supplies but other than that I’m good to go for the weekend and I plan on NOT doing much either. I think some reading is in my future along with just sitting on the patio…while I watch hubby mow the lawn Payback is sweet sometimes…yes indeedy it is! If you have NO idea what crazy stuffs I’m talkin’ about just scroll down to read last post and you’ll understand! And while you are there READ the comments left…OMGosh they made me laugh so hard, thank you to all who posted…I LOLed a few times that’s for sure! I have a funny below for you that will probably make you spit your drink out and laugh like it did me! I like to post a Friday Funny on Facebook each week that makes me laugh, snort, smile or all 3 heehee!
Today I’m sharing a card I made for my sister’s birthday next month (shhhhh don’t tell) and I am way ahead on my birthday cards…whoot LOL! Her and my mom both love primitive style/antiques and love doing puzzles by Charles Wysocki. So when Paper Trey Ink (PTI) called “Autumn Hills Stamp Set” came out with this set I knew I had to get it. My sister loves aqua and soft blues so paired up with some choc brown makes a nice fall card. And I was asked to be a Guest Designer this week for the challenge at “My Sheri’s Crafts Blog” which I was honored to do. The challenge is “Family”, so you have to make something for family or a family member!
The papers are a mix from a couple of my pads and I distressed them all with my fave Zutter Distress machine, the branch die is from Memory Box called “Leafy Branch” (luv it for fall and for other things like this card here I did). And he tborder was done with a Jumbo MS border punch. The image was colored with Copics on cream cardstock for a more vintage look, topped with a bow done with my Bow Easy and a button (cardstock, bow & button from PTI).
