CR84FN 356 ~ Hello Friend!

Hello friends, I hope everyone had a nice weekend. We celebrated Father's Day with a small cookout. My hubby grilled up some yummy burgers and fresh corn on the cob...mmm....mmm! I know you're probably thinking why was HE cooking on Father's Day!?! Well lets just say it's his thing and he loves to do it! My folks were over along with our son. Our sweet DIL was at home with severe issues from wisdom teeth being removed two months ago. She's been in pain and had swelling ever since with many trips back to the dentist. A trip to the ER Saturday with major pain and swelling revealed bone slivers to be the culprit. Oral surgery this morning to remove them so hopefully that's the end of it for her.  She and my hubs texted a bit and as he read it aloud he was instructed to give grandpa a hug from her ~ my dad stood up to collect a big ol' hug...heee! Love those two...three!!!

Now how about a card. CR84FN has given us the lovely yellow and gray combo to work with, how can you pass that one up.


I was inspired by the scalloped plates in the photo so I die cut a scalloped circle into my gray card base then added this fun floral DP from Authentique behind it. A couple of PTI flower fusion #10 and a little tattered bloom I created are clustered along with gems and a button. I used a portion of a $1.99 clear frame stamp in the corners and stamped a few teeny bumble bees in the focal area. The bottom portion of my card is layered with more Authentique paper to echo the dark stripes in the photo; one strip being die cut with my fav PTI heart border. Vintage cream grosgrain ribbon and button twine complete with a PTI tiny tag holding a wee sentiment finish off my card.

Thanks for visiting My Paper Tales today ~Lisa

I hope your DIL is on the mend now, Lisa--what an ordeal. That poor woman. I think she needs a get well card, LOL! :-) This is a lovely card. I really like yellow and grey together but when I try to do it, I'm not usually crazy about the results. You've inspired me! Great papers and love that bow/tag treatment too!

Ooooh, I feel your DIL's pain! Oh my gosh. :-( I hope she's feeling on the mend, soon! Just reading your description was making me queasy. (Of course, I'm easy to make queasy anyway.)

Your card is so, so pretty. You know how I love yellow (ha!)... You make me wish I loved it more! Seriously, you make it look so easy, and fun. Very nice job. ;-)
