Shine At Any Age

Good Morning!

It's Whimsical Wednesday time again and this week young Nick Diedrich has a fabulous sketch drawn up for all of you! You can find the sketch on the WW blog and while you're there, check out what our girl Jacquie has created with it!

I went with a 5.5" x 5.5" square card and used the VERY recently released Mr. and Mrs. Katz stamp set from Hanna Stamps. I colored up Mrs. Katz and made sure she looked like the crazy cat lady she is! Check out the fish headband!! I added some Stickles to it to make sure it shined. :) The paper is from We R Memory Keepers and I always seem to gravitate to it when I do a fuddy duddy card. Maybe because it reminds me of the wallpaper we had in our house when we bought it. It SCREAMS '70s country decor!

Kim Ross (will be posting a little later)

If you want to play along, just upload your creation to your blog and leave a message on the Whimsical Wednesday post with a link back to your creation so we can all check it out! If you upload it to SCS or PCP, remember to use the keyword DDSC9!

Before I go, I had to share with you the contents of an interesting package I received in the mail yesterday! When I opened this package, I was very curious because I wasn't expecting anything from this sweet friend of mine so I couldn't guess what in the world she was sending me.

Check out that label!!! Is that HYSTERICAL or what?! I broke into a HUGE coughing and laiughing fit when I read it!! I couldn't stop coughing because I was gasping for enough air to get it under control and that was making me laugh even more! I took it to work today to show a few of my coworkers - they should get a huge kick out of it too! Hope it made you laugh too. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

What a great card and a great gift. I can just picture you laughing your head off! Huggles

Darla said...

That's a great card Sandra! You did an awesome job coloring your crazy cat woman. And that paper coordinates perfectly with the feel of the card. I also laughed when I saw your 'gift'. Hahaha. Someone was in a creative mood when they came up with that one!

Randi said...

Sandra you are hysterical! Wallpaper? It reminds me of my parent's kitchen carpet from the 70's. My dad was taking practice golf shots in the kitchen once and he took a divet out of the carpet. I think he did it just to change the carpet!! Apparently I inherited my "opps" moments from him. ;o)

Your card is fabulous!! That cat head band is too funny!! And, that paper, regardless of the flashbacks, is beautiful!!!

Christi Flores said...
