Birthday Card for a Scrappin' Sistah

I am part of a group of great women that meet every Tuesday for scrappin', and talkin' (mostly talkin' I think) and on Tuesday June1 our friend Dana is celebrating a birthday so I made this card for her. She has a great sense of humour and will know that it is all in good fun, after all for my birthday she gave me a magnifying mirror and tweezers so I could remove my chin hairs!!! Revenge is sweet. The outside sentiment reads "Sag you're it" and the inside sentiment is "Heard you used to be a 36C but now you are a 36 long." The stamp is from Art Impressions which has a whole line of humour stamps that I love. OK a confession while I went to the site to copy the URL to link it in my blog , I stopped and did some shopping. It is a sickness, truly a sickness!!! I also stamped the image on my pattern paper and cut out the skirt so I could add it to my coloured image. I love that effect. I flocked the pom poms on her slippers and gave her a little flocking on her blue hair to tone it down a bit. Small copper brads for earrings and she is complete. The flower embellishment is made with a scallop punch from Stampin Up and again thanks to a friend in our Tuesday group for showing me how to make it. I think for me the best part of discovering this hobby is all the wonderful people I have met through teaching classes, attending classes and crops and of course my blog buddies.

Today is simply a glorious hot day so my grandson and some friends are coming to swim. The good news I love to spend time with them, the bad news I have to put on a bathing suit!
