It's Thursday!!

It's Thursday and Joyce is on her way. She's up there in the wild blue yonder..... I'm so excited!! Can you tell?

I've got the house cleaned and now it's just waiting time.... So I thought that I might share something with you all.
I am so in need of making birthday cards. I've got a few birthday's coming up and Danielle has depleted my stash. She used to love to sit with us and make cards. As a matter of fact she could knock them out in a matter of minutes ~ and they were good. They did not look like they were thrown together. But of course she's outgrown that. It's not cool for a teen to sit with Mom and Nana and do things like this. So when she's got a friend who's birthday is coming up she raids my stash.... But that's ok, it makes me feel needed *Ü*
For this card I used my cupcakes from TAC's Sweet Thing set. I stamped it then stamped it again on the SU! Sweet Always DP. I colored it in and cut out the base of the stamped image from the DP and pieced it. The base card is Chocolate Chip layered with Pink Pirouette and Sweet Always DP. I stamped the sentiment in Pixie Pink ink from my TAC Gift With Purchase stamps and punched it out with SU! large oval punch and my Marvy scallop oval punch. I added a ribbon and a brad and I was done.
The next card I made for Betty as a Thank You for the Mother's Day lunch she took us out to. I was wanting to make a card and I thought that something with the Voila set might be cute. Then I remembered the window set and an idea hit!! I'm kinda bored with my stamps right now so you might see some imagination. I'm trying to be good and not spend right now...
The base card is Pacific Point (a must to stock up on because it will be leaving soon). I layered it with Ballet Blue and some DP from the Summer Picnic series. I stamped the window image from Window on the World twice and colored it. I then set up the layers where I wanted them and cut the opening out of the window and straight thru all the layers.
The bottom part of the card is the DP that I "ruffled" and ran thru my sewing machine. My machine is having issues so the holes are not uniform ~ I'm picky like that....
So anyway, after cutting the layers out I had the Voila image that I set in the window to see where I wanted to place him. Once it was in the right spot I taped it down and adhered the 2nd stamped window on the inside, just to cover up the edges. I also paper pieced the chef's pants, hat, color and cuff with the same Summer Picnic paper. So - whadda ya think??
I will try to be back tomorrow for some more posting, but I can't promise it... We've got a year to catch up with Joyce. That's a lot of chattin' at the table.
Here's to wishin' you a great day!
