Sunday Morning

I've got a few minutes before I start getting ready for church, so I thought I'd write a quick post and get my card over to the TIME OUT Challenge. I'm still finding my groove after all that scrapbooking, but it is coming along. Spent yesterday with my sweet sister Sue, and her two-year old granddaughter, Emma. She's darn funny. Little Emma didn't want to eat 'real' lunch; chose the chips and salsa at the most delicious Mexican restaurant. Ate the whole bowl of salsa with an occasional "hot" comment. Kept eating though, lol! All my great nieces and nephews call me "Auntie Hoo-Hoo" for some reason. That started with Sue's grandson Brady, and it's now run through the family. I think it's rather funny, and wouldn't dream of changing it. Naturally we went to Polka Dots, a craft store in Mukwonogo. Emma needed paper and stickers! So of course we had to get them for her! Sue bought a stamp that reads something like, "It's almost Thanksgiving time. Don't forget to set your scale back 10 pounds." How funny is that?! We had a great day together! You'd love my sister, and Sue, if you're reading this, START A BLOG!!!! ; )

And before I run out of time to get myself church presentable, I'd better get moving here. Only one card, and it popped into my pea brain after a quick stop for a look-see at Sandie's blog. Had to stop commenting and make it, lol! Sooooo QACAS!!

Here's the inspiration photo. Cool, huh?! Love this color combination, and stripes...so much fun! That's what I went with on my card:


Dug through the scrapbox as I knew I had this blue and white paper scrap in there somewhere. In fact, the reds are scraps too!  They're adhered to a Michaels white base. The die is from MFT, and I scattered a few white sequins too. If you look really closely, you'll see some Wink of Stella on the sentiment as well. Nothing too fancy, but I like the way this one turned out. Gotta run, take care, and happy dances everyone!

Sounds as if you had a lovely time with Sue and little Emma yesterday Bev.

Your card is perfect. I wouldn't know where to begin using an inspirational photo. I like that big sentiment die. I'm sure it's really useful. Have a lovely day. Barbxx

Beautiful card Bev, love the stripes. I really struggle with inspiration cards but will continue to try. There is nothing nicer than grandchildren and the names they give you. I babysat on Saturday and stayed the night. My son said bye mum as I was leaving and I heard this little voice say ' bye mum' my granddaughter who is now totally confused as to whether i am mum or nanna. I so love as they discover their voices and the funny things they say.

Well, Auntie Hoo Hoo, sounds like you had a fabulous time with your sister and sweet Emma, who apparently has a palette more daring than mine! Too cute! Crushing over your blue and red number here: crisp, fresh, fabulous!
