You're Welcome - CTS255

Bad News:  It was cold in Florida last week!

Good News: Walking around  Disney World in jeans and sweatshirts is actually far better than walking around in 90 degree heat!  

Bad News:  We are home and it is a cold freezing rain kind of day.

Good News:  My Stampin' Up! order arrived today!

Bad news:  I missed a friend's birthday while we were gone.

Good News:  The new set Birthday Wit helped me out.......and the inside sentiment says "You're Welcome!"  Funny stuff!

And as for our Disney Days it was all good news......Emma loved meeting all the characters she possibly could.....

I used the sketch from Cas(e) this Sketch this week along with the set Birthday Wit and Painted With Love Specialty Paper.

Fusion: Coffee and A Book

Oh yes this card depicts my idea of a good time......reading is one of my favorite ways to get through cold wintry days!  Another great way to spend a few winter days is a week in Florida......that's where I am as we speak......just hanging out in the sunshine with Miss Emma, her folks and a mouse.....

Fusion has a great challenge this week!  I used both the picture and the sketch!  Hope you join us!

And speaking of warm and cozy........

Oh that Benny and Coop look so angelic but they are a handful!

Kim's fun sketch has us seeing double this week!  Hope you join us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Punny Valentine

The Punny Valentine Challenge at The Paper Players this week makes me smile so I decided to get a head start on some Valentines.  Remember when we had to memorize this sentence to learn the planets?

My very educated mother just served us nine pickles.

And I just can't seem to throw Pluto out of the group!

I used the sketch at Cas(e) this Sketch for my design.


Stamps:  Dream Big (Hero Arts)
Ink: Black, Copics
Paper:  Whisper White, Black,  Brushed Silver, Hero Arts Patterned, Red Glitter
