Oh, Boy! And Why it is ALWAYS a Good Idea to have Swedish Fish prior to 8am

It's Friday, and that means it is time for Friends With Flair over at Unity! I created a fun little New Baby Card using the Sunny Skies Bella Blvd. set! I love how adorable all of the clouds in this set are!!!

Oh, boy!  Baby Congratulations Card


I stamped the cloud and the sentiment in a pretty light blue ink. I kinda love it. Then I dry embossed the frame on the panel and popped that up from the card base and tied it with happy blue baker's twine! YAY!!!! FOR HaPPY Baker's TWInE!!!

Oh, boy!  (side shot)


I probably shouldn't show you this shot, because, well, there is a PUPPY HAIR IN IT, but hey, that's pretty much the story of my LIFE...AND...it shows you the pretty dimension and I {heart} pretty dimension. Just say'n.

Now...as I told you, I need to share why it is ALWAYS a good idea to eat Swedish Fish prior to 8:00 am. Why do I need to share this? OH! PICK ME PICK ME!!! I know this one!!! Because I need to justify the fact that I am doing that right now. Just say'n.

So...

1. It gives you a good, energetic start to your day (ignore the unhealthy part and the crash that is bound to come later...that part isn't fun, so we won't talk about it).

B. They are yummy, Yummy, YUMMYYYYYY!!!!!

iii. It's Friday, and by golly, if I want to eat Swedish Fish for breakfast after a long week, I am a growed up and I CAN, dagnabbit! {just say'n}

So.....yeeeeaaah......that's pretty much what I've got for you today. OH! I do want to show you these super fun little bits that arrived in my box from Retro Cafe Art this week!

German Rubber dolls


These are German rubber dolls and they are the coolest little dolls ever!!! They have a wire structure so you can kinda pose them. And they still have good 'ole German dirt stuck to them from being excavated from the old factory sites!!! *sigh* Happiness! AND...I got these way cool heads, too...

Doll Heads


I KNOW, RIGHT? For reals. I am totally in love with them. I really am. *sigh* Happy days, my friends, happy days.

  3. I've always been told that people should eat fish everyday, no matter what country they are from (grin). And I am a HUGE fan of white space cards - your card is so simple and perfect! I can't wait to see the dolls you create with these porcelein heads! Have a fabulous weekend, sweetie!

  10. Love the clean look to this card! Can't go wrong with bakers twine or Swedish fish!

  11. Your new card is beautiful! I like the clean look with that light blue ink & striped twine! Really pretty! And I totally love fish (generally don't eat meat so fish is a staple) but I guess I've never HAD Swedish fish so I'm not sure exactly what the difference is. Is it a dried and/or reconstituted fish? I am guessing I'd like it! As for the goodies from Retro Cafe, I got one of those posable dolls, too, AND some of the heads, and - I have to confess - a bunch MORE stuff. I DOOOOO love Retro Cafe! HUGS & have a FABULOUS FRIDAY!
