Timeless Tuesday for Flourishes

Well today is Timeless Tuesday and the adorable Maki from the DT is challenging us to use a phrase as our focal point. I took a short cut ( mainly because I was in that kind of mood today) had my hair cut and although I think I look like Peppermint Patty, DD and SIL like it. My little Granddaughter 's comment was ...why the poofy look? Crapola, I guess I just can't win in the cutting department. Anyway I did a short cut with this card as it was so easy. Grab a nice phrase from Flourishes, stamp it down and do a bit of a punch out ( maybe I'll punch out anyone who makes fun of my haircut), do a oval scallop to glue it to, add some sweet lavender blingers, a strip of purple along with some white and then my SU edge punch to make a scalloped piece in the green and voila... I'm done. The BG is from Paper Studio and my buddy Mike had it on sale at a cheap price so I grabbed it up.

My house is in slow progress but I'm walking down tonight and grab some photos to share. Have a fun week fellow stampers.

Cool card! Makes me think Native American blanket, which is kinda out west-ish, isn't it? I'm sure your hair cut is lovely. As particular as Julie is about her person, do you honestly think she'd let you out in public if you weren't presentable?

Great card Pat, I just love all the colorful stripes with that simple focus on the sentiment!
I'm sure your haircut looks great, but your family needs time to get used to the new look:)

Your house looks good so far! I bet you cannot wait to bring furniture in!
