Friday & Feeling a Little Blue

I know a lot of you will have read the title and be saying “Katherine, really, a Friday before a long weekend and you are a little blue? What the heck?”  My besties will tell you that it started last evening.  We went to Mama Mia as part of the local radio station’s Chick Flicks.  I LOVE that movie, but when Meryl Streep started singing Slipping Through My Fingers, I lost it.  I find it very difficult to not be saddened and the overcast skies and rainy mugginess is not helping.  Of course, a four day weekend and the fact that our daughter’s schedule is so busy that they have not a minute to spare, only worsens my heartache.  I don’t know how those of you that have grandchildren in other states do it!!  Only getting to see them twice a month in a large group setting just kills me.  If it was less than that, I would be in big trouble, more than just sulking and crying.

If you have no idea when I am talking about, get your klenix in hand:

Ok, thanks for putting up with my babbling or blubbering, whichever you would like to call it.  I have two cards for you today.  The first is a 6 X 6 card with my daughter in mind.  It is for my post at Scrapbook Stamp Society.  Each member of the Design Team posts twice a month.  It is using the fabulous Bestie Best Friends  by Sherri Baldy at Scrapbook Stamp Society.  If I didn’t color my hair, I would look like the lady on the right!  My daughter is on the left, in purple of course.  We both have matching eyes because my daughter has the same fabulous blue eyes that I have with a hint of green and depending on the angle, who knows.  I used paper from Doodlebug Design called Lovebirds.  Those fabulous flowers are Botanical Flower Layered Accents from K & Company.  The Besties image is colored with Copics and some chalk was used for the background.  Hope you like my results:

Best Friends Card for May 24 SSS post 














The second card is to enter the Birthday challenge at The Besties Blog.  I have used the image I Love You PINKles, again, by Sherri Baldy.  For those of you who hate it when I just say that I colored the images with my Copics, here’s my list:  Dress & Roses are with Y04, Y06,Y11, YG41, RV23, RV29.  The eyes are Y17.  The tongue is R56.  The balloon is R29 & R32.  PINKles is YG03, YG11, and YG23.  Hope that is helpful.  Of course, Glossy Accents were used on the eyes for the images in both cards.  I think she will be a fun Birthday card for one of my nieces:


I Love You Pinkles Card for Birthday Challenge



















Well, thanks for spending a little time with me.  This was just the distraction I needed.  Now I am off to take my mother to the cemetaries and put the wreaths.

Here’s another look at the two of them, just together this time:Best Friends & I Love You Pinkles Cards


I will be entering these cards in some challenges:

  1. What great colourful and fun cards. I especially love the frog one with the glossy balloon and eyes. All the gorgeous colours really make this a card that would put a smile on anyones face.

  2. I’m so sorry you’re feeling blue! I completely understand! My oldest will be a senior next year, and I’ve been beside myself sad at the end of this school year and realizing how quickly time passes!
    On a happier note…..What fantastic cards! Beautifully done! Thanks for joining us at Sister Act Card Challenge this week! Please visit us again soon!

    • Thank you Trisha. Yes, it is amazing how quickly the time passes. We do try to choose activites we can do as a family and let things like cleaning and cutting the lawn go if we can. Priority of living in the moment. So glad I found the challenge over at Sister Act Card; I will try to join in again. You are very sweet to take the time to read what is written in addition to looking at the projects. I find that if I am able to write it or talk about it, then I am able to let it go and feel better. :)

  3. What a a great card.
    Thanks so much for joining us here at Besties challenge blog. Please come back and join us again real soon!!
    Hugs, Marianne
