You Make My Heart Flutter. Do I Need a Doctor?

Pin It

Happy Tuesday, stampers! I was enjoying my weekend so much, I decided to let it last a little longer.

Today's card was created for SCS's Limited Supplies challenge, LSC222, "Plenty of Patterns." This weeks challenge limited players to:

  • ½ sheet of plain card stock for the card base—no other plain papers;
  • Plenty of patterned paper;
  • NO coloring supplies ... no Copics, pencils, markers, crayons, nada; and,
  • Keep the embellishments simple.
For all the challenging deets, clicky HERE. To go straight to the LSC222 card photo gallery, clicky HERE. To see the ginormous view of my card, clicky right there on the photo.

I stamped my butterfly ... a birthday gift from my dear friend, Annapurna, on patterned paper from MME, cut it out, and popped it up on dimensionals. I stamped my sentiment, from the same stamp set, on another paper from MME's "Bloom" collection, tied on a twill ribbon, added some Kaiser Craft pearls, and finis! Easy-peasy and ready to serve in, say ... 25 minutes!

Soooooooo, this past weekend, Sheila and I took Reid-the-Wild-Child out for ice cream. As we were sitting at the ice-cream bar, we watched a sweet older man shuffle in. He v-e-r-y slowly, and obviously painfully, pulled himself up onto a stool.

After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split.

The waitress asked kindly, "Crushed nuts?"

"No," he replied, "Arthritis."

The Wild Child is still asking what was so funny!

Gorgeous card Deb! Love that butterfly. You did a great job on this challenge. Speaking of stories, I heard one similar. . . A little boy dressed as a cowboy walks into an ice cream shop and orders a sundae. The woman behind the counter asked the tiny cowboy if he wanted whipped cream and he said "yes ma'm". She asked him if he wanted a cherry on top and he said "yes ma'm". She then asked "Do you want your nuts chopped?" and he pulled out his toy guns and said "you want your breasts shot off?" LOL Makes me laugh every time. Hope you are well. Best, Curt
