Shhhhhhh.....It's a surprise!

Hi there!  I am so glad you could stop by today!  Hope your weekend is going fantastic!  In my studio this week, I have created a birthday card for a dear friend of my husbands.  He is having a surprise birthday party next Saturday.  His daughter requested that all cards be related to fishing and that each guest dress up in his/hers best fishing regalia.  Haven't came up with what I am going to wear yet but I DID make a really cute card  (thank goodness for ScrappyDew pattern files, saved my bacon once again).  So here is the link to the file that I used  The file is named Gone Fishing 2011.  There isn't any lyrics with this card as every bit of it is scraps.  Great scraps but none the less scraps.  Just cut it out using my Zenith Zing and slapped this card together.  Easy peasy!  So here is what I came up with...

Did you catch the phrase?  Good things come to those who bait!  LOVE IT!  I think that the fisherman getting this will be pleased.  OK, now on to another subject.

It's not offically fall yet and I am already starting to nest.  I do this each year. Get the windows done, change the decor from summer to fall in the house.  Well this year I wanted to cozy up the studio.  (i see all these beautiful studios with cabinets galore, and to tell ya the truth i get very envious)  So a little sprucing up was in order.  Bought a curtain rod at Walmart for $3 and put it up.  Found the curtains at a neighbors garage sale for 50 cents a couple of weeks ago. The signs on the wall were Dollar Store finds many moons ago.  I collect glass orbs (sometimes also called Witch Balls) So here is what I came up with (click on the pics they are easier to see). 

So for under $6 bucks I changed the studio into an area I will be happy to create and nest in this fall/winter.  (have to admit that I change things around all the time)

So that's it for this week.  I am taking off next Saturday for the surprise party but will be back the following Saturday with an anniversary card that is still evolving on my desk.

Take care and bright blessings, Jana
