Follow Your Heart. You Don't Need No Stinkin' GPS ...

Pin It


Happy Tuesday, Hoardin' Card Makers!

Today's card project was created in a New York minute using a punchy border, a die-cut, an adorable l'il birdie image, and a rubber stamp:

Could a card be any easier?!? I think not, Sistah-Sledge! But what will I do with it, you ask? Beats me! But coincidentally, I do have a friend plannin' a prison break ... this just might be the perfect greeting card for that special moment-of-life.

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all of the heart-pounding product info, check out the Card Ingredients, below.

Sooooo, talk about a weird conversation! Yesterday, I stopped by Sheila's for a minute and while I was there, her phone rang.

Sheila, being off doing something, yelled downstairs at me to 'please answer the phone.' She didn't put it quite that way ... it was more like, 'do ya think you could manage to get the freakin' phone,' but I s'pose that fact doesn't matter.

So, I did like I was ordered told and answered the phone. It was Jill ... Sheila's insane crazy sister.

"Oh, hi there, Deb. What's new? Say, aren't we having good carnival weather?"

HuH?

Thanks so much for stopping by ... hope you have a great day!

~Hugs,
