Stampin’ Up! Swirly Scribbles Thoughtful Banners Hello

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there in Blog-ville!  I hope you all have breakfast in bed (and don’t have to clean the kitchen), get the house cleaned (without having to lift a finger!), and receive flowers and adulation from all who know and love you!

I am fixin’ to hit the cards hard today – I planned that yesterday, and was partially successful.  But…some of the guys wanted to go to lunch….


…what’s a girl to do?  And yes – that’s the exact same meal I had at The Olde Pink House last weekend.  I was oh-so-tempted by…well, everything else on the menu!….but in the end, just couldn’t resist that chicken!!  Yuuuuuuuummmmmmm-oooooo!!

But, I did get one and a half cards made on Saturday – and this is one of them!  It’s using some of the many goodies I received this week in my pre-order.  It was really hard to pick just one thing to use – so I used a couple!  I pulled out the Swirly Bird stamp set and its bundled Thinlits – called Swirly Scribbles and added a sentiment from the Thoughtful Banners bundle as well.  Take a look-see:

Bright, huh!?  I’m loving these new 2016-2018 In Colors.  I wasn’t sure I was going to – and felt the same about the Playful Palette DSP, which you can see peeking out from behind the sentiment panel.  But, boy, was I wrong!  It’s growing on me like gangbusters!

Stampin’ Up! In Which I CASE Myself with Painters Palette and Large Numbers!

‘Sup, y’all?  Everyone getting ready to head back to work?  Me, too.  Bleh.  But, I put beef stew in my crock pot so I’ll have dinner all ready when I get back to the hotel tonight – Yum! 🙂

So, last week, I had my cards with me in my bag, and I showed them to my two friends at work.  They were both suitably impressed – doesn’t take much, they don’t realize that the tools I have at my disposal can make me look like a card-making-genius – and I kind of keep that to myself! 😉  And they both requested a card.  The first is the anniversary card I shared with you yesterday.  And the second – which you’re fixin’ to see, is a birthday card for the second guy’s daughter – who’ll be turning 7 shortly.

Now – this is the same guy that, while we were on a previous trip, got a whole bunch of SU! stuff from me for his wife and daughter.  Apparently, his daughter is very artsy and really loves making things.  He was immediately taken with the Painters Palette card I showed you on Friday.  And when he asked for the birthday card – requested one just like it!  Only with a birthday sentiment!

I asked what colors his daughter liked – he said pink.  So, I told him I’d change up the colors – including the card base.  And he said – no – he liked the black background and he knew his daughter would, too!

Since the customer is always right….and it’s a custom card….well, I gave him what he asked for!  This time I added a sentiment from Circle of Spring, some Hearts and a Bitty Butterfly.  She’s still a little girl, after all (seven is still a “little girl”, right??)!  Take a look-see:

See?  Looks eerily familiar, doesn’t it?  Good eye. 😉
