Simple Saturday


It's a Party_May_2010Tonight’s card is my take on FTL 90 as featured on the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. I have to say that I appreciate these gals coming up with an end-of-the-week sketch just in time for Simple Saturday.

Fun stamps. Fun colors. A length of ribbon. Sparkles. 15 minutes or so. That’s it!

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Ocean cardstock; Ocean, Citrus Leaf, Sunny Yellow, and Bubblegum ink pads; It’s a Party and Say it in Style stamp sets; Sparkles; Ribbon from Wal-Mart; Corner rounder.

How was your day? The blogosphere was quiet. I expected to come home tonight and have a long list of blogs to read. Nope. It was just a handful – an indication that folks are busy. That’s OK. With nice spring weather and a flurry of activities at the end of the school year, it’s to be expected.

We had a really fun day. Two-year-old Hailey’s party was at a Roseau motel. While the grandmas and grandpas watched from poolside, Cameron, Sarah, the little boys, and most of other young folks spent a couple hours in the water. It was so much fun watching them have fun. After the party, Marv took the little guys and drove another 25 miles north to visit his brother and his wife who have their camper on the lake in Warroad. I rode back to TRF (about 60 miles) with Cameron and Sarah, so I could get my weekend chores done. On their way home, Marv and the boys stopped at the hunting cabin and then drove through a national wildlife refuge where they saw all kinds of wildlife, the favorites being pairs of Canada geese and their recently hatched goslings. The boys are staying with us tonight, too, so I’m look forward to more fun in the morning.

I hope yours was a wonderful day as well. With a couple of card ideas in my head, I’ll most likely be back tomorrow. ‘Til then, take care, and thanks for stopping by!

silly question Kathy.... What company are your stamps and ink colors from. You have the color names but they aren't familiar to me.
Love checking your blog everyday and seeing what new things you do.
I like your style!!
Thanks, Janette
