Happy Birthday Dan and WOYWW 143

Happy Birthday Dan....

A few weeks back I made this card for my son's birthday.  The inspiration for this card, other than Dan's birthday, was this paper.  Dan lives in San Francisco and the lighthouse, the whale, the colors all said....I left my heart....where?  You got it!  I think my favorite card to make is the easel card.  To me the card looks like a gift.  The papers are Webster's Pages the petite papers, the Market collection. 

You know, it's Wednesday and I'm addicted....check out Julia's site and see what everyone's desk is looking like...It's WOYWW - 143.   I'm working on a birthday card for my buddy Brenda.....This desk is a bit of a tease for her, as I know she'll sit trying to guess what is under the Under Construction sign...well's your card!  Now, will she be wondering if the items she sees on the desk supplies I'm using to make her card...Now Brenda....that's to keep you guessing!  I will give her one hint....the photo below might be something I'm using on her card....Note....I said might!

The flower is one of my newest flower dies....It's the scalloped die from Memory Box and the leaves are also Memory Box.  Pretty cool, I'm thinkin!

The other day I was reading posts to Facebook, when my son's buddy Brian posted the below photo.  I've got to tell you, I've seen this look before and the photo really made my day.....
I hope this photo puts a smile on your face.....

Have a great week....enjoy the time you spend with friends, and if those friends are with you crafting...All The Better! 

See everyone next week!

  11. Mary, my daughter copied this pic to me off facebook about a week ago and we both laughed and just love it...we don't have a hound...but we both know about seperation anxiety!!
    Your son's card is really nice, jsut what my DH would like too - he's all about straight edges and non fancy frames etc, perfect!

  12. Yes that photo did make me smile. We have two dogs who hate to be away from us, especially if they can hear us aand can't get to us. Serious whingers, both of them. I love your "Under construction" sign. I might have to create one for myself. Have a good week. xx Maggie #9
