Merci!!

That's a big "Merci" to my dad... actually I've always called him "papa" and I'm blessed I can still do that!! He raised 5 (yes, that's 5) kids- 4 girls and one boy (the youngest)!! Happy Fathers' Day and Thanks!! My parents live in Indiana but, we've talked on the phone and my younger sis was busy all day so she took him (and mom) out for ice cream---he's totally addicted, totally perfect to do!!
Today is the WMS blog waltz and I'm finally getting to play!!
Used Victorian Frippery... definitely a "go to" and stamped the square fleurs in SU Taken With Teal and Pumpkin Pie onto some Authentique Gathering dp. Stamped the large circle image onto vanilla and layered. Added some seam binding from the Ribbon Carousel and silver halfback pearls from Pizzazaplenty.

This month is an inspiration pic... guess I love these colors (seeing as I  my WMS sketch this weekend uses the same colors!! Nope, done separately!!)

Here's the inspiration pic...
Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

It's been a busy WE... honestly, I normally hang out in my "craft cave" and love it but, yesterday was spent looking at boats... yep, we're getting a boat!! Nothing fancy, nice, previous owner but, all the kids can tube and learn to ski!!

Love the background stamping on this Vickie - a great way to 'thank' your dad - the orange ribbon really pops on this - how fun to get a boat (don't tell my DH - it's his secret wish!)

What a sweet card. I like that frippery set and adore these colors, too. I also used Authentique paper for my card. Great minds and all that!
