FMS233 You're The Best

Happy Thursday, peeps!  Ah, the weekend is almost upon us!  I have a quick little card today using the FMS sketch:

 Friendly Phrases is one of those fun stamp sets that I just never got to use enough, and since it's retiring, I thought I'd ink it up for today's card.   I stamped a big flower from Flower Patch and trimmed it down, then positioned it behind a stamped gingham strip (retired wheel).  It all went atop an embossed piece, over which I placed my sentiment:

Both stitched elements are from Lil'Inkers; the smaller flower is also from Friendly Phrases!  Thanks for popping in today!

Cassidy spent an hour or so in the craft room with me yesterday, making a birthday card for one of her dolls.  Now, at any given moment, her doll could be 3, 5, or as in this case, 12!  She stamped a little puppy dog, cut out the number 1 and 2 and adhered them on the card:

She even came up with her own sentiment, which I wrote out and she traced with a black marker:

I thought this was pretty clever!

The clincher was this one though....on the inside, she used a green glitter pen to write her sentiment, and after the first word, she looked at it longingly and said "I could just eat this up!  It's like there's a party going on here!"  LOL...I cracked up!  Who of us hasn't felt that way about something glittery!!!


  1. Perfectly sweet, LeAnne with my favorite embossing folder, and that darling red gingham! Miss C's card is a winner, too! I could just eat HER up!

  2. Love your card.
    Cassidy is going to follow in her grandma's footsteps and be a great card maker.

  3. I'm not at all surprised that Cassidy is able to make adorable cards. Just look at who she hangs out with all day! Gotta love it!

  4. I love that red flower peeking out in the background! Fun card! And Miss C did a wonderful job on her card! Adorable!

  5. Great cards from both of you!

  6. Black, white and red, one of my favorite color combos. Great card, and please tell Cassidy I love her card too. Woofy birthday, I love it!

  7. What a delightful card! Love the classic color combo and of course those chunky polka dots and gingham! Oh that Cassidy is a HOOT!!

  8. You both make such nice cards.. The color pop of red on yours was great and of course.. the puppy woofday was perfect.

  9. What a fun card! I love the embossed polka dots with the gingham! That is one great sentiment! Reminds me of a picnic!!! I love Cassidy's card! She is so blessed to have you and your craft room!!!

  10. I can't believe how much she's grown! And that's an awesome story. :) Love your card. It is so fresh and clean with some gorgeous gingham. I am always such a sucker for that. Must be my country roots. lol
