Strut Your Stuff!




I really was drawn to this stamp of Miss Anya playing her guitar and I wanted to make a sassy yet fun type of card for her. I pulled together an assortment of design paper and finally settled on using this design paper by Piggytales. I think the guitars are really cute and make a great card for either girl or boy. To keep up with the fun and sassy theme, I added some DP from Making Memories and matted the layers with white card stock .




To give my card a sassy flair, I added red eyelet brads and decided to use two contrasting ribbons.


Well today has been a busy one for me, the kids have a half day of school the rest of the week and this really throws me off schedule. Tomorrow I have two parent teacher conferences and if I'm not too tired, I will try to finish up a couple of cards. Until then, have a great day and thank you all so much for stopping by!

I gave up shopping for lent and then all the good stuff goes on sale. I will have to get this stamp to make something for my nephew who is sooooooo into Guitar Hero.

So how is it going up Saginaw way? I still am in panic mode with this retirement thing. It might help if they actually got the pension checks correct. there was a deduction this month they had forgotten for the previous 4. Its not like they have never done this right? Well, I am going to bed to read a bit. Or maybe do crossword/logics. Keeps my mind off my stupid family (you got any of those???)

Have a nice weekend. I can handle rain a bit as long as its warmer.
