happy birthday and hello!

Woo Hoo for Friday....for the weekend...although it'll be filled with Spring Cleaning...make sure you check my For Sale page...it'll hopefully be updated throughout the weekend:)

The kids and I had fun last night...my girl is hoping that a supposed storm comes through tomorrow so that school is cancelled...LOL..she gave me a mini manicure...well painted my nails...I don't typically do my nails but I love getting regular pedi's although those poor ladies don't like me...my feet are ultra-ticklish and it is hard for me to sit still...anywho's....

I wanted to play along with the
Get Sketchy Girlies!

Here's the fabbie sketch:

Here's my take...it's primarily an October Afternoon in April :)

The entire card is based on that Making Memories banner....

Hope you'll play along!!!

Next up is CPS160 and the Raise the Bar April Showers Challenge:

Why yes, I am quite smitten with this particular MME line:)
hmm....sorry my card is doing the leaning tower of pisa...LOL...

I did alot of stitching...that tiny zig zag is seriously hard on my old & tired eyes...

That's it for me today...

  5. That is wonderful that you got to spend some time with your daughter doing girly things! Love these cards as usual, and that's awesome to hear it was created around ONE element. Way to make them work....

  13. Two fun sketches Amy! love the chipboard banner! and the fun umbrella paper!

  14. HA! i had to laugh at the whole card being based on the chippie banner. i've done that. i've done whole cards based on a rub-on, for that matter. hey, whatever get's the mojo going, i say "WOOHOO--go for it!" (plus it is just a downright *FAB* card anyway!) i am diggin' the umbrella one, as well...i love the idea of a thought bubble just used on the cover on its own--you are BRILLIANT! ♥♥♥

    (ps: i can one-up you, pedi-wise! my left foot is UBER-ticklish...my right foot, not at all...figure THAT out!!!) :) :) :)

  23. Cute cards, Amy! I really like that happy Hello card...its making me smile!! :>

    I'm not too hot with painting my nails. I even once got it on my nose........DON'T ask how that happened!!! It was years ago and I have NO idea how I pulled that off!! But, I've got a girly little girl, so I imagine she wouldn't mind helping her ol' Mama out.......but, I'd better wait until she's old enough to not have it in my hair, the couch, and everything else! It just might be a challenge to wait that long though....the last couple of weeks, she's been bringing me my nail polish and oooo'ing and ahhh'ing over the 'pretty' colors. :>:>

    Have a fantastic weekend!!! :>

    Your April Showers card is perfect! The A10 sized card is a wonderful way to showcase that awesome DP, and the stitching is waaaay too cute. Love the bubble sentiment - it's like someone is having a conversation under an umbrella. lol! Thank you for joining us at Raise The Bar this week!
