A Friday Full of Fun For Friends wit Flair!

Tee-hee...that was a fun title. Just say'n. BUT, today IS, indeed, a Friday FULL of fun! You see, in this post, I am showing off my card for the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger and Friends With Flair Friday and in the NEXT post (also going up today) you get to see my Skipping Stones Design Feature Friday post! HOLY LOTSA FUN, BATMAN!!! Go ahead...do a little happy dance...I know you want to... Oh. That's just me? Okay, then. I'm perfectly content to do the happy dance all on my own! YAYHAPPYDANCE!!!!

K. So, uuuummm...here's the card:

Thank You


When I saw the trigger below ALL I could think of was those beautiful layers of sweet and yummy caramel. So, after deciding that layering strips of actual caramel on a card probably wouldn't work as well as I would like, I decided to go with some fabulous trims, instead. I found them to be MUCH less sticky and a bit more 'mail friendly', one might say. Just say'n.


Thank You (detail)


The stamp is from the Unity Heartfelt Sentiments set and the trims are from *takes big 'ole breath*...May Arts (sheer, burlap string, silk), The Twinery (twine), Teresa Collins (lace& pleated with tulle), and some unknown company who makes really cute felt flower trim. *Let's breath out.* Yeah..I'm sorry, I don't know who makes that one, but if any of you can source it for me that would rock!

The button, however! (Yes. That is a complete sentence. Because I said it is, that's why.) THE BUTTON, HOWEVER! That is vintage. You see, I rediscovered an absolutely scrumptious vintage jar of vintage buttons on my brown shelf! I had forgotten that I had purchased it and I absolutely LOVE THESE BUTTONS! I had so much fun choosing one for this card. Just say'n.

vintage button jar


Yup. That's my vintage brown button jar. Yup. It makes me happy. Yup. It is making you happy right now, too. Yup. Everyone should have one because then everyone would be pretty much happy. Yup. Just say'n.

K. So that's what I have for you in THIS post, so YAY for a Friday full of fun for friends with flair!!!!

OH! And I'm also linking this up to the Less is More Eye Color challenge since my eyes are totally brown (dirt brown, as my lovely Hubbums likes to call them), and so this card is definitely showing off the browns! YAY for dirt brown eyes!!! Yeah....that's it.

K. Bye now. Happy Friday! Don't forget to come back to check out my SSD Feature Friday post. There will be donuts. Just say'n.

Oh...and by now you probably all think I've been eating candy for breakfast again, but I haven't! I just did Jillian's 30 Day Shred this morning for the first time in ages so I feel WICKED good and WAY too awake. K. That's all now. Later!

Jingle OUT! (No, for reals this time.)

I loooove the layered look! And it's SO not fair cracking me up this morning! I think your blog should come with a warning: THIS BLOGGER CAN CAUSE SERIOUS COUGHING. IF YOU HAVE A COLD OR FLU, TRY TO AVOID UNTIL COMPLETELY WELL! BWAHAHAHA!Really? Avoid YOUR blog just because of a little COUGHING? NEVER! You are just way toooooo fun!P.S. I've been collecting (hoarding) buttons since I was 8 years old. Seriously. I am addicted to them!

I want to pet the trims. Like, seriously :)
Maybe for newbies there should be a warning - I've learned just don't drink anything while reading Jingle :)
