B.Y.O.S. ...

Pin It

And B.Y.O.B. while you're at it!

Today's card was made in a flash using this fun "girlfriend" stamp from Unity Stamp Company, sunshiney designer paper, and a strip tease from Cosmo Cricket's "Hello Sunshine" collection.

Using a SAMJ, I stamped my image three times on white card stock, then again on scraps of designer paper. After I paper-pieced the funky girlfriends images, I added my strip tease, a scrap of designer paper, a ribbon, and finis! Easy-peasy and ready to serve in ... oh, say ... 25 minutes.

For all the gory product details, refer to the Supply List, below.

Sooooo, Sheila's DH, Ken, owns a glass company and he's currently running an ad for an experienced glazier.

"Well," I offered, "with so many people out of work, you shouldn't have too hard a time finding someone."

"Let's hope," Ken answered, "a good glass man is hard to find." Well, I let that go ...

But while we were hangin' out, he took a phone call from a man who said he had over 10 years of experience.

"Fantastic!" Ken said to the caller, "Where have you worked as a glazier?"

"Dunkin' Donuts," the man responded.

Yeah, he didn't get the job ...

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me; you rock!

Oh Goodie, I'm first! This paper piecing is so pretty! The yellow "Sun" behind the summery girls - just adorable! I really, really like this design!

Glazed donuts. Yikes!

Oh, what a happy card! Love it! I'll bring my own margarita, if you don't mind. Too funny about the glazier, although I don't know why anyone would want to give up a job at Dunkin' Donuts. Think of the benefits. Yum.
