Thank-you Lynette...

Happy Easter Everyone.  I hope ya'll had a fabulous day with your loved ones.  We went to brunch at my oldest grandson Wylie's favorite place to eat, IHOP=)  I made this card for a gal in my book club, Lynette to thank her for hosting our book club meeting.  We read Memoirs of a Geisha which is one of my favorite books.  I think I've read it 3 or 4 times now.  I'm really enjoying getting back into reading, it's been so long!  I finally broke down and bought a Kindle Fire two weeks ago.  I'm reading my 3rd book on it right now...I really like the convenience of downloading and having the book at your fingertips in seconds.  I think my hubs likes that I can read in bed until 12 or 1 o'clock in the morning and not have the light on to disturb him while he sleeps.  Definitely one of my favorite things I've spent money on=) (well besides crafty stuff of course!).

I started out staming my image (sure do wish I had the MFT PI Good Fortune, it would've been perfect for this card!) with Memento Ink on Neenah, coloring with Copics and using Nesties and Die-Namics Dizzy Doily Duo.  I paper pieced her pants, shirt, pillows and book.  Sahara Sand and Basic Grey Out of Print paper.  Sentiment from SU Noteworthy Stamp set, SU Photo Corner Punch and Border Punch, Denami Design Rhinestones.  My layout is this weeks MFTWSC66.

Thank-you for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Adorable card! You're a grandma of two? WOW! Well, as one Arizona grandma to another, it's nice to see other "vintage" scrappers out here! Thank you so much for the help at Splitcoast MFT and I hope to get the hang of the whole posting for their challenges. I have been blogging for 2 years now, but have yet to get involved in the Gallery posts. Good luck to you on the challenge!
