You're so Sweet My Teeth Ache

Pin It

Happy Tuesday, hoarding card-makers ... hope your long holiday weekend was fantabulous!

Today's card project was created for my "You're So Sweet" card stash using stamps from SU's "Trendy Trees" stamp set and lots of different shades of pink:

A l'il bright, huh? And I just realized that looking at this card makes my teeth hurt ... hurry, look away!

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all of the sweeeeeet product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Sooooooooo, yesterday after the parade Sheila and her family and the DH and I went to our community center for the Memorial Day ceremonies. On the way, Sheila explained to Reid-the-Wild-Child that he would meet some local veterans there.

"But what should I say to them?" Reid asked.

"Oh, just start by introducing yourself," Sheila replied, "then ask what branch of the military they served in."

Later at the meet-and-greet, a veteran came up to chat with us and Reid made sure to introduce himself to the gentlemen.

And then the Wild Child asked, "So, what tree are you from?"

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

Good morning Deb! Yessirree, it's bright! But the pink looks good on the tree - it's actually a great card!

Funny story, too!

Spyder said...

oh yes very funny...reminds me of me...My friends baby brother was born, so my mum asked me what was his name...I thought for a bit, because I didn't 'get' the name at all, and said "Spot"
A little later mum found out the baby had been named "Mark".....Lovely card, and no my teeth are fine!! Thank you for joining Quirky Crafty's challenge this time round!
