Happy Everything!

I have to blog and run :0) At any minute my sistah is going to be calling me to say she's ready to go to lunch! Here is my submission for the kwerner color challenge. For the bottom of the card I used our white daisy stamp pad for the spot on background stamp and then embossed it with white. I am using those stamps to death! Love them!

The flowers and sentiment are from the With Love set which is the June stamp of the month. I embossed them with white on white cardstock and then sponged in the color with sponge daubers. Add brads for the centers and they were ready to go..."Easy peasy lemon squeezy!" Do you know that quote? The first person to tell me what movie that it's from will receive this card in the mail!

My sistah Stacy is always giving me such a hard time about me saving every scrap of paper. This card just goes to show her that no piece is too small! I pulled them from my scrap drawer. To make it look like stitching I pierced holes and then connected the dots with a white gel pen...every stamper needs one!

Well, I still have to get ready to go so I'm signing off. Don't forget to post guesses for the quote!

You are Close to My Heart,
Yvonne

I like the effect of sponging with the daubers after the embossing. Wonderful Card. TFS, Amy.

Love the card, wish everyone could see it in person!!!! As far as the movie quote goes, 2 come to mind, one which I doubt you have watched, but I have the other I haven't but you probably have. First came to mind Austin Powers (can't remember which one) and then The Greatest Game Ever Played: there could be a lot of others too, I think it kinda went around a few years back.
Thanks for the support today, you forgot to tell me one little thing about "bandaids" ughhh

Loved the card! I've got all the stuff to make it, except the stamp, but I'm friends with someone who has one, so maybe when I come to your...er, HER house, I'll be able to borrow it.

Is the movie quote from "Fried Green Tomatoes"? That comes to mind, for some reason!
