Finally a Card

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Fathers Day to everyone's fathers and the men in your life!!

I am so excited that I was finally able to do some crafting AND with some new goodies. I received the other day the new In Colors from SU and the new dp that is on preview. All I can say is YUMMY YUMMY!! The new in colors for this year are bright and fun and the Razzleberry Lemonade paper is so pretty.

For my card today I stamped my image from Taylored Expressions, Doctors Orders, onto PTI Cardstock with memento tuxedo black. I paper pieced the comforter, book and pink pillows and colored the rest with my copics. I started out trying to use the Friday TE Cupcake Sketch but it just came out very different so I am back to the drawing board for the sketch!! I used the new Razzleberry dp and layered it with new In colors in Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry. Finished it off with some ribbon I had in stash that matched pretty well and a few baubles. Now, here is what I see on my card that is funny to me. You may not even notice it, but the grey bauble on top of the cupcakes head looks like a little swirl of hair on top of a bald mans head. I just cant get past that!! How funny is that. I probably should have used a different color bauble but oh well. Hope you like it.

I will be back soon with another card because guess what???? IT IS RAINING AGAIN here on Long Island. I actually had a plant die outside because it just received too much water. Can you imagine? It just drowned!! Poor thing.. but my green thumb hubby will probably be able to revive it. He thrives on all that gardening stuff. If I would not yell at him, he would probably turn the sprinkler on DURING the rain. LOL. Of course you have to picture this...we live in a beach community and our property is very small. I could cut my front "lawn" with hedge clippers if I needed too!! LOL Seriously though it is that small but it is his and he is proud of it!!
So I am off to my crafting corner of the world. Have a great day!!
