HB Melanie, Goodies & WSC42 - Thank You


Happy Birthday, Melanie! I am proud I was able to surprise her with a covert birthday card shower this week! Thanks to all the ladies who participated. Well, when I brought my card/gift to her, she surprised ME with some goodies - I love them all! She knows how much I love DCWV matstacks, so she got me the Spring one - it has 5 of each pattern (because they're not glitter or adhesive - so I begged her to take 2 of each of them to play with. Then these tubes of glitter (they are the cutest itty bitty flowers & hearts) and the colored safety pins are so cool. Thank you, Melanie...you're such a sweetie.

So since Beate posted her weekend challenge (WSC42), I used all my new goodies! I had to make a shaker card to showcase the itty bitty flowers (they really are adorable!) The patterned paper is from the stack (coordinating with Apricot Appeal, Soft Sky & Close to Cocoa). The set I stamped with is Simply Said - the sentiment a current level 1 hostess set by SU! The trio of circular white ribbon is from Trudee's Treats I won a few weeks ago - MORE awesome goodies (I got the copic marker, spica pens & making memories trims) I will post the card she sent me soon, it is just scrumptious! I messed up with the spacing on the top left white brads but it was too late to fix it (they were put there as an afterthought because I felt it needed more balance & I was eyeballing the 1/16" hole punches). Oh well...I think the shaker makes up for that!
