CCMC418 and FF93


Hi peeps!  It's Saturday!  Yay, the weekend is here and I have a quiet week ahead as Cassidy will be on vacation!  I think my stamp room needs a serious cleaning up, though...gotta work on that!  Today's card features LOTS of different products, some retired and some current!  It's so fun to mix stuff up!  I used the sketch from Fab Friday; not sure why I haven't played very much with this fun challenge; and the colors from Create with Connie and Mary:


CCMC418   

I admit that I was having so much fun with this little sketch, I got carried away and added GOLD...hope that doesn't disqualify me with Connie and Mary, LOL!  So here we go:



 I used some Blooms and Bliss DSP for my left panel, which was diecut with an Adorning Accents (ret) Edgelit.  My Mint Macaron panel is some retired Birthday Bouquet DSP and is accented with some lace at the bottom.  My flourish is from Timeless Texture, as is the gold-embossed speckle; the  small flower is from Touches of Texture!  For my larger flower, I used a bloom from Array of Sunshine (ret hostess set) as well as a couple of flowers from Endless Thanks.  The bow is from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlet, and the gold swirl is from Swirly Scribbles.  I used a combination of two sentiments for my banner:  Teeny Tiny Wishes and Endless Thanks.  I told you I used a lot of stuff today!!

I have a special friend who will be receiving this in the mail very soon!  Thanks for popping in!  

The great-nephews, a neighbor of ours, and Cassidy had some pool fun earlier this week:


Cassidy was obsessed with the neighbor's little mohawk....look how patient he was to let her play hairdresser!  Even though he doesn't look it, he was a good sport about it!  He lets her be bossy, LOL!


I am almost at the end of my birthday cards....this happy creation is from my friend Debbie:


and this beauty is from my teamie, Nance:


Have a blessed day and be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

  1. I'm not sure what I like about this card...oh, yes, EVERYTHING! I have most of the recipe so I might try that today. I also need to clean up my 2' x 2' crafting area. When I am using so many things at once, I can't find anything!! Have a great weekend and thank you for sharing more of your birthday cards.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous LeAnne! Enjoy your time cleaning up - I am desperately in need of some of that too, it's a total mess in here!! Only about 8 more days of kids though and then a little time for cleaning up before we hit the road. ~chris

    The pool looks like so much fun...gotta get in the last summer days before school starts again! Most schools start after Labor Day up here, or just the week before.
