Just a Silly Little Card.....

Hey there! It has been a bit crazy in my house preparing for the beginning of the school year. Kyle has been taking private golf lessons and had his first round of golf try outs today. Tomorrow is round 2 and I am keeping all of my fingers and toes crossed that he makes the team! In addition to that I am having a sweet 16 party for Cort on Friday and there is always shopping involved, some cleaning, cooking etc. I have been trying to get into my classroom and start setting up, but have been unsuccessful so far. My gram took a tumble yesterday and was rushed to the hospital for stitches. She is home and is okay but I needed to go there and help clean up. So if my poor blog is a bit sporadic you will know why!

My card today is just a silly little card I made just because. I don't do that often but I felt like coloring this cute little mouse. He is part of the Tea With Alice set by Crafty Secrets. I colored him in with Copics as well as the teacups he is holding. I cut the tea cups out and stacked them up using dimensional foam circles. I added a bit of glitter to the "tea!" I did a bit of airbrushing and added a couple of shadows under his feet.

Gotta run! Cort has physical therapy in a bit and she is screaming for a hamburger from McDonalds today! So off we go to the drive thru! : )

Have a fabulous Wednesday!!! ((((((Hugs))))))) : D

Going Vintage

Good morning to you my friends! It is sunny and a bit cooler here.......which means I can finally open my windows! I am heading to lunch today with Cortney's very good friend and her mom to plan Cort's 16th birthday and Patty's 17th birthday this Friday. We are having a pool party with all of their friends! (Including Cort's boyfriend, "Jimbo!" ; ) It is one of those moments that tugs at your heartstrings to see them all together, loving each other unconditionally. Unaware of each other's disabilities.

I have a card that seems to be continuing my pink and black theme.(Polka dot paper is by Echo Park, Green designer paper is Pink Paislee) I used the Exclusive Cricut Circle Cartridge, French Manor to create the Eiffel Tower. (For more information about joining the Circle, click HERE) It was cut at 2.5". The oval was cut using Elegant Edges at 4". The flowers were cut using the Flower Shop cartridge ranging from 1/4" to 1 1/4". I purchased a bunch of stamens off of Etsy and added those to my center. I love the dimension it adds!
See that little rolled flower tucked in there? That was created using Flower Shop too! : D
I added black tulle to the left of the card and wanted the knot to be hidden a bit. So I pushed a decorative stick pin into it and added another flower.
Well off to get my girly dressed and ready for her lunch date! Have a happy day!!!! Thank you for taking the time to visit me! : )
