Fun Stuff!!




Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a great Saturday!! We took my DD Holly, her DH John, and my parents out to the Olive Garden for lunch today. What yummy food...I am sooo full and sleepy!!! I would really like to take a nap but I have to go plant some flower for Mom in a little while. In the mean time, I will have to keep my fingers busy!! Anyway....

I made this bright and cheerful card for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast today. Stef wanted us to find inspiration at the French Bull store. I decided to use this bedspread as my inspiration...love the yellows, pinks, and greens. I used the Stamp Oasis butterfly on the main image, the sentiment is one word from the Rubbernecker How Do I Love Thee background script, and the gorgeous SEI Mimosa dp for the background layers. The May Arts ribbon, flowers, and a bracelet finish it off. Now, I bet you are wondering about the bracelet....Anne (Itsapassion) was the hostess for the DDC challenge last week and she challenged us to find inspiration from the awesome scrapbook layouts in the SBSC31 challenge and as a twist, we needed to use a fashion accessory. I dug around in my old jewelry box and found this bracelet. If you would like to play along, be sure to add DDC to the keywords section of you upload so we can find your card. You can find all the DDC cards here.

Isn't this just the cutest little bunny cuppie from Taylor's Sweet Spring set!!! I had to ink her up for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge. This is also for Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simple #81 challenge to use an egg on a card ( I used 3 egg brads) and for the DDC challenge 2 weeks ago (yikes...I am just a little behind!!) hosted by Michelle (sf9erfan) to make a 1-2-3 card. 1 piece of dp, 2 ribbons, and 3 brads. Well wouldn't ya know, I just realized I forgot one of the ribbons....guess I get the buzzer this week!!! I was going to add a little ribbon tab but forgot!!!
