Don't forget to enter my candy give-aways here (Retirement Part-Oozak GC) and here (Just Because-maggie mini set) :)
So my day started with getting ready for a dentist appointment, which my husband had forgotten about and he loaned my car (little red "solstice" sports car) to our son to go golfing. I was a bit disappointed, cuz I had to drive the BIG truck (HUGE 250 ford 4x4, king ranch/king cab, long bed) and it's sooooo BIG! After my appointment I was headed to the LSS to pick up some flat pearls for my project. Here is the driver's side of the Lincoln Continental Town Car-the side I didn't hit! Never trust a person to motion you to turn left over three lanes of traffic when you can't see the furthest lane, and don't mess with the BIG truck (thank goodness I was driving it!). Thankfully no one was seriously injured (minor whiplash), just Lincoln parts strewn all over the road - and my first car accident, ever... The other driver was cited for causing the accident and his car was towed. I hope to never have another one again in my life... terrifying experience!
But the night ended on a happy note with my first cascading "Basket" (inspired by Wendy Fraser) card, all the while singing the song with Ella Fitzgerald "A Tisket a Tasket...", for Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog April/May Monthly Challenge! This month's theme is spring and flowers and I chose this darling digi image by Elisabeth Bell "I love You This Much". All colored up with copics.
I cut a ton of flowers with my Spellbinder's and CC Designs, along with Marianne Butterflies, Sweet & Sassy Stamps hearts, Sizzix circles for the handles and Memory Box Meadow Leaf dies - all cut and embossed with the Cuttlebug. The patterned papers are from the Echo Park "Victoria Garden" collection... and... flat pearls (yes, after they changed my front tire and pulled my bumper straight with the wench, I went to the LSS :) Added a few rhinestones to the butterflies and used my vintage seam binding ribbon for the bows (love this stuff!).
Be sure to pop over to Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog and join in the fun!
Wishing you a WONDERFUL "Tisket a Tasket" accident-free Day!
