Thinking of You as Still the 1

Happy weekend everyone!  I have two cards to share today -  first up is a card I made using this weeks' Cas(e) this Sketch
I used some pretty ribbon flowers from and I die cut my sentiment from Waltzingmouse with a Sentiment Strip from MFT.
My next card was made for the Cas-ual Friday's challenge - to use a number or numbers on your creation.
I used a cute little dart board from Stampcow - framed by an embossed Nestability Circle as my focal point.  The dart board is surrounded by numbers. 
 I used a die cut arrow from MFT for my sentiment 'You're Still the One' from Verve.
With yet another vacation day in the 90's with high humidity - Kent and I went to the mall for a late lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings and then went to the movies and saw Red 2.   We had just watched Red on Pay Per View and we  loved both movies - have you seen them?  They are really funny amongst all of the gun shooting and car crashes!

Get Your Ducks in a Row

In the beginning of June,  I got an e-mail from a K K Yuen in Hong Kong who has two fairly new Etsy shops - Stampcow where he sells hand made rubber stamps and Craftpon where he sells craft supplies.   He said he had seen my blog and he asked me if I would be interested in receiving some items of my choice from his Etsy Shops at no cost if I was willing to post creations that I made with those items on my blog.  After looking through the shops and finding some fun things- I said 'Yes' - I'd be happy to! 

So with that full disclosure - here is my first post using a sweet little duck stamp I received from Stampcow.

The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions - from a stamp set that I just won when I guessed Taylor was having a second girl!  How lucky am I?!

I used this weeks Cas(e) this Sketch for my card design today.
And just for good measure -  I made a second card in blues for the boy babies!
These will go into the box of cards I keep under my desk at work - I have several co-workers who buy my cards - and it's usually for birthday, baby or sympathy!
Today is Kent's and my 16th wedding anniversary and tonight we're going out to dinner and a play with my college roommate and her husband.  We made the plan to get together coincidentally but it will be a nice way to celebrate!

The play is called "These Shining Lives" - here is a brief description of this true story - " In the 1920s, The Radium Dial Corporation employed some 4,000 girls and produced watches with brightly lit dials. These were jobs for girls that had never worked before. They didn't just make money; they made friends. But the radioactive paint they were using made them terribly ill. These Shining Lives tells the story of four women who rejoiced in their new-found camaraderie and found the courage for each other to stand up to the employers that endangered their lives."     Sounds interesting doesn't it?
