merci...

Happy Saturday!

Do you have any plans? I'll be playing Taxi Mom...birthday parties and shopping....

Today I wanted to share a Prima-licious card....

There is something about paper that has text on it that is fairly subtle but has some BAM to it, kwim? That describes the Prima paper that I used on this card...sooo very gorgeous...it reminds me of the paper mache projects I did when I was in elementary school...a long, long, long time ago..gotta love that sweet bird perched on the coordinating Prima chippie...

I was inspired by Laura's sketch #52:


♥♥RAK Alert♥♥

Check out the happy card that I received from my bloggie friend, Sherry!!!

So Sherry is always creating gorgeous blooms....all kinds of blooms. Whenever I come across a tut for a bloom, I send it her way:) She showed some of her ribbon blooms on her blog the other day and I ordered 2 sets from her... sorry for the wonky pic....it was about to monsoon...

Aren't they gorgeous??!!! I love them, and will have to hoard them for a smidge before using them on any of my projects....thanks sooo much Sherry...you've outdone yourself!

♥♥Kidlet Alert♥♥

Check out this embellished jar that my girl made me...oh yeah, dontcha love her perfect bow??!!!

She did the cross stitch as a classroom project...I LOVE it and when she told me that it would be part of a jar project, I knew that I'd fill it up with buttons! I've said it more than once, and I'll keep on sayin' it...love it when my kidlets create gifties for me....I truly appreciate the time that they take to make anything and everything for their momma:)



Well, come on back tomorrow...I'll have my 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday card...we have an excellent sponsor lined up {again...Pam is rockin' the sponspors!!}..
