Well, I am tardy to this party, thanks to my attending the one thrown for ME, in honor of my 50th birthday! I got whisked away to Stratford, Ontario, Canada! TOTAL SURPRISE!
My Charlie was the host of this affair, and we got to have along his sister Sue and her husband Mike (Another surprise!)
We got there on Thursday afternoon (Aug 1), and we dove right into the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. Between Thursday and Sunday, we saw FIVE shows--Three Shakespeare plays, a Noel Coward, and the musical Tommy. WOW is the very best thing I can say about that! Lots of great food, a charming city, and wonderful company. Couldn't ask for better!
THEN- Monday morning, Sue and Mike headed home, and we headed to Toronto! My first visit there, and we had a really nice time. We stayed right in the middle of things, and saw so much of the city! I am happy and exhausted!
I was actually prepared WAY in advance to post this, but I forgot to set a timer on Blogger. The best laid plans...
SO! This is my card that I am showing over at the Oozak Challenge Blog. We're doing Anything Goes with Something Funny this time.
I made this--
I have owned this stamp from Stampin' Up for ages, and I think I have never used it before. I thought it paired up with my sweet giraffe from The Alley Way Stamps very nicely. I loved stamping and cutting these My Mind's Eye papers, especially the aqua dots that I used on the giraffe.
I love these flower buttons from Stampin' Up, and I used my old trick of "threading" them with teensy strips of paper, instead of fibers.
I think the skinny red mats really set things off well, too.
This was a fun one!
