I just love being able to use files from ScrappyDew. This week I have used the file called Honeymooners. Only I did some creative editing. I use the wonderful cutting program Make The Cut. I was able to mirror the girl on the blanket and make her bigger (i left out the male figure, sometimes a husband just gets in the way). When I pieced together the file I also had to do a little trimming to remove the un-needed areas. The base of the card in a box is made by Core'dinations and called Gemstones. Aren't the embellisments wonderful? I found these on a trip to the local St. Vinnies thrift store. 25 cents for a package of EK Sucess is pretty darn cheap. I created the words in MTC also and used the clear pop bottle strips to support them. Here is the finished card from all angles.

Oh, oh, oh I have to tell you I had a blast for my birthday mothers day celebration. All 3 of my girls took me to a wonderful little bistro called Word of Mouth for breakfast (holy cow it was the best I have ever had). Next was a trip to Craft Warehouse for some supplies. Then headed on over to the casino for bingo and buffet (crab feed anyone?) Sunday we visited some nurseries (one with a petting zoo, and NO i did not bring home the baby goat) and a beautiful iris and peony garden. (pics to come with layout later) It was the best time in ages.
So take care my friend, bright blessings for the coming week! Jana
