Beate's WSCS #38



Happy Saturday stampers, scrappers & crafters!
It is so nice to be able to post a card today ladies! Rough week for me, now onward to hopefully a much better one ahead! Any improvement would be greatly appreciated! (wink)!
Thank you to Beate for doing these wonderful sketches!
This is my version of Beate's #38 sketch for the weekend! Sunglasses suggested! This card is a bright one, yikes! I hope you like it, and that the yellow doesn't blind your eyes too much! Cute chickie, who could resist for a $?
My DD's took me to a early birthday lunch today, and to shopping at Nordstrom Rack, and treated me! We had a great time and they plum wore me out! Now I am going to bed at 7:00 Pm feeling awful, but it was so worth the precious time spent with my DD's. My youngest daughter, Heidi has her birthday 2 days after mine, so we are meeting up again on Wednesday, in between our birthdays! Such a treat indeed! For me, Tuesday will will be pamper Deb day...hair, nails & pedicure, ahhh... just what I need, it always makes me feel so much better (even it if is just on the outside, it feels good)!
Every Tuesday is always Farmers Market Day for me, I try and go to buy fresh organic produce and fruit grown locally. The gorgeous flowers are also grown at the nearby fields, so the bouquets are full and under $6.00! They last over a week, but I buy them fresh each week. Needless to say, I will be pooped out by dinner time! DH and I hope to be able to go out to a fancy dinner, but I think I will need to rest and we'll go another evening, which is just fine by me. Stretching out birthdays is the best part!, don't you think? (wink)!
Card recipe:
CS-Whisper White-SU!
PP- Scraps from Costco pack
Stamp-$ bin Michael's - Ink-Glorious Green-SU!
Copic marker and a bit of chalk -SU!
Scallop punch-SU!, Flower chipboard, I received in a nice RAK.

Thanks for your wonderful comments, and being so patient with me on my blogging lately. A huge heart felt thanks to those of you whom have sent me beautiful cards! I was in tears at the mailbox the other day, with gratitude and joy, and the fact people out in card making blogland really do care! It blows my mind, how very blessed and special you make me feel!
Have a nice weekend! Happy stampin'! Deb
