Cest' la Fete!

I've incorporated two challenges in my card today - Friday's Limited Supply Challenge was to have words in a different language on your card (figures that I had used En Francais just the day before!) So I pulled out one of my old sets that I kept in French (Now working in a French Immersion school so I'll have more uses for them!!)
Saturday's Inspiration Challenge was from Bugaloo Soft Sole Baby shoes. Too cute. I picked this little purple pair and am happy with how the card turned out. I used the Spring Flower Set from the Sizzlets dies for the Big Shot. To get those perfectly spaced dots I used the paper
piercing template with a gel pen.

Now I don't usually share family photos - but I was proud of my drummer
boy on Friday night. The band played at a different lounge - which was nice - and they added 3 new songs to their repertoire. They performed one of them as an encore and Grant came out from behind the drum set to join the vocals. As a bias mother - I have always loved his voice!!! Once the ballad-like lyrics were done, he scooted back behind the drums to pick up the pace of the song. It was great.

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday and celebrating with the men in your life.

Thanks for dropping by!

Fifth Avenue Mambo

Today's "Ways to Use It" Challenge on Splitcoast was to use text on your card. I decided to use En Francais. I've also used Melon Mambo which is one of the new In Colours! I love it and the fantastic In-Colour ribbon this year! I think I must be in a monochromatic mood right now. Oh well, I'm just happy to be creating!

Counting down - 6 more school days!
Counting down - 9 more days until grad!
Counting down - 12 more days until Canada Day!
Counting down - 17 more days until I walk back onto the UofA campus - didn't ever think that was going to happen!

Hope you're counting down to something!

Turquoise Thank You

Today's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers is shown in the thumbnail. I decided to make a monochromatic card for this one - and since I'll be needing some more musical thank you's I added the oval scallop at the bottom. I love the Pink Flamingo designer paper - it's so vibrant - although, I suppose today it's a turquoise flamingo.

I hope you're enjoying your day! I'm gradually getting ready for the end of the school year and for my daughter's graduation! Can't believe it!!!

Thanks for dropping by! JOAN

Four Friendly Monsters

I have been wanting to make these muppet-like cards for quite a while. I couldn't believe that with the big shot and all my punches I was able to put these four cards together in under an hour. Sooooo Simple!!!!!

I'm off to bed - two sleeps to the final concert! Not that many to the end of the school year either!

Hope you're having a wonderful day, and thanks for dropping by!

Busy Birthdays...

Well, here are some of the cards I made yesterday using one of my old Simply Scrappin' Kits. I got 25 cards made using only half the supplies for the kit. If I end up duplicating them, which I think I will - I'll be all set for Birthday cards for Splitcoasts' Birthday RAK's!

I had a good time this afternoon watching the video that two parents took of one of my concerts at school last week. It turned out pretty well....except for the problems we had with the
sound system. I also watched the video that was taken while my daughter was in Europe with the Grade 12 class. They sure saw a lot. What a wonderful experience.

I'm planning to post some more of these quick and easy cards - I have a second concert this week so my mind will be on that - but I'll stay posted - pun intended! :)
Have a wonderful day!
