Saturday Afternoon Card

ImageToday was a beautiful Saturday.  The sun was shining, it was warm outside, and I had my flip flops on!  Spring is around the corner and I can’t wait.  This morning I finished up 50 bridal shower invitations for a friend’s future daughter-in-law.  I can’t tell you what a  sense of accomplishment that was when I wrapped the last stack up.   Then my girlfriend, Linda, and I decided to stamp a card while watching an old movie with my daughters.  A fun girls afternoon, right?  So we decided to make something that had colors that were light and reminded us of spring.  I decided to use Natural White card stock for my base.  Then I grabbed my “Off the Grid” stamp and use it with Coastal Cabana ink for the background.  I started my layers with a Doily, burlap ribbon, washi tape, and Pink Pirouette card stock.   I stamped “Celebrate” from the stamp set Starburst Sayings with Coastal Cabana ink on Coastal Cabana card stock and then cut it out on the Big Shot with the Starburst framelit.  Scalloped punched Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana card stock was the topping on the cake, I mean the card!!!  A couple of buttons and what a fun card you have!   Well it has been a long but fun day and I am off to bed.  Tomorrow I turn 60!  I can’t believe it but my birth certificate doesn’t lie unfortunately.  I am looking forward to a nice quiet day in my stamp room playing with my favorite things all day.  Thanks and take some time and go stamp something fun yourself!  Oh, by the way, how do you like my new header?
