Well I know you won't believe this because I can't even believe it BUT...I was asked to be the guest designer for August at Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply challenge, which is a Friday event that I love to join in on!! Guess poor Sharon finally gave in and said " this old lady is not going away." Can you hear the silent scream???EEEEH!!! So here I am and my smile is glued on from ear to ear all teeth showing even though it may be a bit scary for some of you to see. My cup is running over right now...to heck with the half full stuff, I'm going for full and then some!
Today's challenge is That's What Friends are For (ssnotime99), so make a card for a friend. I love that song "Keep smiling, keep shining la la la la..."quit singing and look at my entry.My card is done with a phrase from Stampendous that I love because friends are a special gift from God. I used two of my Nesties to set off my phrase and my Flourishes stamp from the Sweet Peas set. If you're wondering how I got such a beautiful bow...well first of all I used some wonderful May Arts ribbon (won it in Shipshewana) and the great little gadget called Bow Easy. These can be bought from Sharon on her site by clicking here, I won mine as I already said. I colored my flowers with colored pencils and added a couple matching small pearls. Done! It was a simple card once I got started.

Weekend time once again and it's my church picnic so I'll be on the prowl for a cute old man who needs to share his table & perhaps a beer with some sweet old lady like myself. Happy weekend to all and thanks for stopping by!
