Bunting Flags

I always love things with paint chips. It is so much fun to stand at Lowes and be overwhelmed with the colors --- then to choose a few treasures to take home. Unfortunately it is kind of like collecting seashells, once they get home I have NO clue what to do with them.

Today's inspiration challenge over at Splitcoast is from Santa Barbara Chic.  She included this row of Bunting Flags which I decided to copy .... I love them strewn across the inside of this card!

My baby was on Nova tonight!

I am SO proud!  The computer's name is Watson and my baby helped him learn to think -- and to answer jeopardy questions. So far I don't know who won the games that will be on Mon, Tues and Wed of next week, but I do know that Watson had a great showing in the previews and was featured on Nova last night.

Here is a cute photo of him ...

The bluejay on my card is because that was the name of the project several years ago when David first started working on it.

Happy Birthday Susan!

I made this card for a dear friend on her birthday --- the patterned paper flowers are embossed in one of the extra large cuttlebug folders. The text is heat embossed then sponged and buffed.  I am really liking how it turned out.

My scanner here is bonkers. The card looks pretty much like the tan one on the left, but my first scan came out blue like the one on the right. I have no idea why!

Zen heart roses

Roses seem awfully appropriate for Valentine's day and I found this great zen pattern of roses made with hearts.  Now to make a card with it!  I am toying with Juliet's idea of black and lacy for Valentines Day with my shoe drawing ... hmmm.... gotta do some serious thinking here.  I plan to use my shoe digi ... it is here and yours if you like.   Sorry about the poor scan, my scanner here is on its last legs.

This is actually a New Balance Shoe, not a Nike like I thought. ( Thanks Juliet! She sure knows her shoes!)

Card is already made in my head ... when I get it made in the real world, I will post it.

I did the drawing, but Juliet came up with a ton of phrases to use with it ...

"Excuse me while I slip into something comfortable"
"Let's go tie one on"       

"You're my solemate"       
"We've been together a long time"       
"I thought you'd get a kick outta this"
"I hope you aren't feeling run down."
"I shoe miss you"
"I'm baring my sole to you"
"Here is something lacy for Valentine's Day"
"Just do it!"
"Catch me if you can!"
"What can I do to jog your interest?"
