Something sparkly

     Hmmm?  Since today my B-day I wonder if I'll get distracted by something sparkly?  LOL  If I do it will most likely be something like Stickles.  As soon as I can find a  spare minute I'll be sitting down and the computer to order some goodies.  My hubby wouldn't have a clue what to order for me and I'm not sure myself exactly what direction I'll be spending my dollars.  There's SOOO much fun stuff out there!  Just for fun why don't you leave me a comment with a couple of your favorite crafty items that I might need to add to my collection.
     A huge thank you to all of you who have left me birthday wishes.  We're not big party animals, but I'm sure we'll be going out for a nice dinner tonight.  Yum!
     Speaking of yum, if you haven't added you name to Mr. Linky yet for my birthday candy you have until July 4th.  Since I got it posted so late I wanted to give everybody plenty of time to join in the fun.  :-)
     So let's talk about my card.  :-)  Tammy is re-releasing some of her adorable children's dresses this week at A Day For Daisies.  I paper pieced mine and added some sparkle to go with the fun sentiment from Create with TLC.
     Don't forget our texture challenge is still running for another week at the ADFD blog.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Little Miss Muffett--sparkle
The Ribbon Carousel--paper piecing
Make It Monday--anything goes
One Stitch at at Time--summer dresses
Sentimental Sundays--cute and girly
Sweet Stampin--ribbons and bows

     Happy Friday!

  • Paper:  My Mind's Eye Lost and Found--Sunshine, Recollections, Kraft Outlet Light Kraft
  • Stamp:  A Day For Daisies "Child's Dress 1", sentiment from Create with TLC
  • Tools:  Nestabilities Classic Ovals, EK Success Dotted Scallop edge punch, Bow Easy
  • Miscellaneous:  Michael's bling, Diamond Stickles, Offray ribbon

Happy Birthday! I hope you get some super cute stuff when you go shopping. This card is beautiful. I went and checked out the site you got it from and they have some pretty things! I am sure you have a lot of the stuff I could suggest but have you seen those cool new crystal buttons from SU! - they look like something you would use. I could also see you using that birch tree die from Memory Box - not sure if it is new and you probaby already have it (it is at the top of my wish list). Have fun!!!

Happy Happy Birthday Tracy...I hope you enjoy today and your birthday. May only joy and happiness come your way. I live in a small town with no craft stores, I know can you believe it...But today I ventured out farther down the road to a Joann's Crafts and I found the Stamp-a-ma-jig. I know you probably already have one but I never knew about it and a friend sent me a tutorial on it. So I just had to have it. And it was on sale. So because it is your birthday I bought it for myself. Thanks so much for sharing this special day with Love to you and yours, joann sassy raggedy

Sassy Raggedy said...

Oh, Tracy I am so excited about my Stamp-a-ma-jig I forgot to tell you I love your card. joann sassy raggedy

Lisa Minckler said...

I would never have thought to pair that sentiment up with a sparkly dress...that's just too stinkin' adorable for words.
I looooove the humor that you use in your cards.
Hope your birthday was sensational and that you're able to take on the burden of dispersing all your mad money to crafting stores. If it gets to be too much, give me a holler. Hee hee.


Jinny Newlin said...

LOVE how you've used those papers, girl! I picked up my own a while back, and they've just sat for lack of time to play with them. I'm thinking that I must go get them out. Your sparkly dress is a change from your norm, and I just LOVE it to pieces! Happy birthday, young lady! Hugs!
