for you: fancy chickaniddy



Good Morning!

I'm blogging live today with a card that I whipped up this morning.  It's amazing what a girl can do when she wakes up at 3 am!

paper:  chickaniddy crafts twirly girly, fancy pants designs as you wish  other:  may arts twine, jillibean wooden flag, cherry wood veneer paper

This card was made especially for the girls that spent yesterday afternoon with me.  We all got together for a Stampin' Up Stamp Camp.  We cranked out 6 projects...chatted a lot, laughed a lot, ate a lot and learned new things!  It doesn't get much better than that, does it?


I don't generally mix different companies but the base is Chickaniddy's Twirly Girly Collection (A Girl's Generation & Grandma's Quilt).  

The blue striped panel is Fancy Pants, As You Wish with a coordinating Brag Card.  The 'Smile!' is from the Ephemera Pack.

The twine is May Arts and the wooden flag is Jillibean.

Do you see that Wood Veneer strip?  It's glorious Cherry Paper that I have been hoarding, big time.

I was inspired by




blue:  check
pink & orange:  check
pine:  check

I was also inspired by



I wanted to show a quick pic I took from my afternoon with the girls.

I made buffet flags for the various wraps and salads.


I used Reverse Confetti's Label Me Confetti Cuts along with Petals 'n Posies.  The yellow is my new Fresh Ink Lemonade {LOVE it} along with Grass.

That's it for me today...I'm going to be crafting up a storm today...going back to daily blogging.  I just have too many supplies to NOT blog {at least} daily.
