Thoughts of Britain with Memory Box

 I just have a quick post for you today....
I am gettting ready for all of the 'doings' over at

Hopefully as I write this, it will make sense.
I am listening to an NPR interview with
Ricky Gervais, the British comedian and
creator of the original 'The Office'
series from Great Britain.
I think the guy is not only hysterical,
but really intelligent with so much of 
his humor and in his interviews.
Funny guy.

So, my bestie Sarah, who is also from the UK
has been away for a couple of days with Sue Roddis
doing a fabulous workshop with Dina Wakley.

Although we live an ocean apart, when she is even
further away from her home in Cheshire,
I really, really miss her.
So I made this card for her.

You may recognize the fabulous vine border stamp from
Memory Box.  I stamped the vine in Momento Ink in
'London Fog' (no coincidence with the British-theme here).
Then used VersaMagic in 'Agean Blue' for the flowers.
The sentiment is a $1 wood mount from Hampton Arts.
The rick-rack is from Debbie Mumm
The flower from Prima
The rhinestone is Martha's.

Hope you are having a fab time, my friend...

A really lovely card Julie-lucky Sarah to receive it!
Ricky Gervais is rather funny although I think I preferred Extras to The Office (it's been such a long time since I worked in an office that the humour got lost on me lol).
I'm hoping to do the next Play Date Cafe challenge as lately there haven't been enough hours in the day to do everything but it's settled a bit now.

What a pretty little card, I'm sure that your friend will love it too! I just got this stamp last week (along with some of the new MB papers), so happy to see how lovely it will be used on a background! (I would have thought it was DP had you not mentioned it, it's so perfect!)

I love both of your cards today, but commented on this one, because it had less comments than the other. I love the cornflower blue with the yellow, and your yellow card is so cheery. yellow is an awesome color!

Have a great night!!!
