CPS #123 & "dear friend"

CPS has another sketch up! this time i made two cards, the first one doesn't follow the sketch as much, but the 2nd one does... i used almost exactly the same materials for both.

i love the little cake image--it's from Stamps by Judith, and it's perfect for coloring, even on colored cardstock. i did a little shading and then added some glitter from DeNami Design. the alphas are from Making Memories, as are the orange brads. i think the "official listing" stamp is from Little Yellow Bicycle, but i'm not positive... i threw the packaging away :(

i'm loving ORANGE lately... you'll probably see more of it--brace yourselves :D hehe.

anyway, i'm also including another card i made the other night. it's very similar to THIS ONE, but it's got a really sweet chipboard "deer" image from Colorbok. i <3>

speaking of jokes, i'm in need of some funny, clean, kid jokes to include in a skit i'm in at church (Vacation Bible Adventure [VBA] starts next week!) i am going to be performing in front of middle schoolers, so it has to be comprehensible to them (but probably a step up from "knock, knock" jokes). i'd love to hear your suggestions, if any!

(it's much appreciated.)

anyway, think that's it, i'm off to bake some banana bread (my sister featured a new recipe on her BLOG, and we've got a TON of bananas waiting for the same delicious fate, so off i go!) thanks so much for stopping by! i'd love to hear what you think about the cards, and any of your jokes :D

All three cards are special and attractive, but I have to say I find the one with the deer particularly charming. I like your orange trend, too! The brads and button placement in that first card are spot on. You're doing great work!

They are lovely!! I really like that big central stamp...Sorry I can't think of any jokes (I just shouted through to my kids to ask them - 9yr old said 'What sort of star is dangerous? A shooting star' Sorry...)
Got to go and get banana bread out the day for it.

Ooops - part of my message above got missed out - was just saying I had to get my banana bread out the oven - must be the day for it!

These are darling Ginny! I esp. love that adorable deer with the layered scallops!

Sorry, I don't have any jokes. My oldest is seven so we are still in knock-knock phase!

Super fun colors on all of the cards. Way to rock the CPS sketch this week.

It's a good life!
