Good Saturday Morning

Hope your Saturday has started out well. Mine has. After all, it can't be anything but good when you start the day off with a delicious cup of coffee and warm weather. Well, warm for Wisconsin in late October, anyway...(60+ degrees at 7:00 in the morning). In between saying 'good-bye' to company and getting to the cleaning and errands earlier this week, I have played a little in my craft room. Hopefully later today after more of the same, I can sit down, do some commenting, and maybe even make a card or two. That's the plan, anyway. We'll see what happens.

Since I hadn't played at Muse or CASology as of late, I thought that it was about time to remedy that. There's a sweet card by Lucille for our inspiration at Muse, and a fun cue card at CASology:



For my Muse card, I stayed pretty much with Lucille's sketch and colors. Just changed things up a little bit.


mmmm....coffee.... Bought this Jillibean Soup kit a few months back, and I'm still having fun with it. Except for the cardstock scraps and base, plus the ME die, everything is from this kit. Pretty fun and pretty EZPZ.

When my kids were little, a bandaid was the cure for every little boo-boo. Well, that and a kiss. So that's where I went with my "Cure card."


I love this darling little stamp set from Taylored Expressions. That bandaid is adorable in my book. Beside the matching die, I used a couple of WPlus9 circle dies and called it good. Pretty darn CAS, if you ask me. So that's what I've got for this morning. Hope your weekend is blessed and happy dances everyone!

Love how you were inspired...your coffee card is awesome. I didn't realize that Jillibean Soup had kits! Looks like a cute one!

Sweet bandaid card!

Happy Saturday!!

Bev, so glad you're doing well and getting back into the routine! Both your cards are just adorable! Gotta say that while the band-aid one rings a bell I'm sure with every mom, the coffee one really has a hold on me :o)

Bandaids, especially when they are this cute, really do fix most things lol.

Two simply fabulous and sweet cards. Your coffee card looks so cute and pairs so well with the Muse doughnut card. And your adorable get well card, just perfect!

Marybeth said...

That does sound like a nice way to start a WI day! Beautiful cards here today Bev! I don’t know if I could ever keep up with all you do !

Bobby said...

The slowdown in card making has not dampened your creativity, Bev. Both cards are wonderful and perfect for their respective challenges.

Hello, Miss Bev! I am giggling to myself because your "warm" 60 degree morning is practically the tundra in my book! :D Its actually been mid-seventies and quite dry for the last week here which has been lovely! Now we just need a bit of rain. It's been totally dry since the storm a few weeks ago and the ants are all coming inside looking for water. So annoying.

As for your cards - two beauties! Loving that happy Jellybean Soup paper and the way you tucked your sentiment in on the side. Your smiling bandaid is perfectly adorable and would definitely make me feel better anytime! Hugs to you, my friend, and thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

Bev your cards are so sweet! I love how you were inspired to use coffee for your Muse card and that band aid is just the sweetest! No question a band air is the cure for everything for little kiddies--and big ones too!

Tracey McNeely said...

...and thank you for sharing with us at CASology this week!

Two lovely and fun cards from you Bev. I'm late getting round to visits so hope you had a good Sunday too. Barbxx

Ardyth said...

Hahaha! Lucille brought the donut, you got the coffee! Great take on the inspiration! Love the cute bandaid, too - that will bring a smile to anyone's face! Thanks for joining us at Muse and CASology this week, my friend!

Anita in France said...

Our temps have been lovely too, Bev ... nice to keep that warm weather going for just a bit longer huh? So, your cards ... fun coffee one ... I was thinking what Ardyth wrote, so will just say ditto :). The bandaid ... absolutely adorable ... sweet, funny, gloriously CAS ... and sure to lift anyone's spirits (rather like you really!). Miss you lots, mon amie ... and owe you an em (soon)! Hugs & bisous, Anita :)

Beautiful interpretation of Lucille's muse card; Great job!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Two really super duper cards, Bevie! Winners in my book!! They said on the game last night that Chicago's temps had taken a dive so I imagine that will be happening for you, too. If it hasn't yet, enjoy the warmth while you can!! I'll be thinking of you Thursday!! Love and hugs, Darnell

Joyce said...

So very adorable--love that happy little bandaid. Perfectly CAS, too. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

BIG HUG to you!

Coffee and donuts: a most delicious pairing! The next best thing would be sharing both with you! Your coffee mugs are such fun; the heart, a perfect touch! Now that bandaid: my stars, but what a cutie with its little arms and legs, and sporting a smile that would make anyone feel better! Adorable!
Hugs, love and misses~c
