Happy Saturday...and RSVP requested : )

A couple of completely different cards to
share with you today and then some fun news!

First...this is a birthday card that I made for
my husband which I am also entering over at

The Challenge - Male Cards

This is some of my favorite
Webster's Pages paper.
I pieced it together and over-stamped
with this great Kelly Panacci clock
from Sandy Lion.
I inked up a chipboard buckle and added
the double satin ribbon.

Now for a 'bright' change of pace!

I am playing with both


I have to say that the sentiment tag
on my work table IS lime green.
In the photo, not so much.  It
matched the top lime green really well.

I finally bought a Hero Arts Asian set
that had chinese lanterns.  I have wanted
some lanterns since last summer but never
got around to getting them.
I stamped, cut out and accordion folded
each one.  Then just attached them to
wire with some gold cord and added
a few 'sparkles'.
The umbrella stamp is also from that set.

Now for my fun little news....

It will be my 
First Blogaversary!
in less than 9 days!
I can hardly believe it and I am
amazed at how MUCH has 
changed since then.

So I will be having a little 'party'
to celebrate and of course,
I will be sharing some fun projects with you
and there will be a fabulous giveaway
so I am looking for RSVP's!
Leave me a comment here to let me know
that you are planning on stopping by sometime on
June 14th.....

Very excited!
