Happy Birthday Jason Mraz!

I don't have a card today. Today is the birthday of a favorite singer of mine! Jason Mraz!!! I was able to see him in Nashville, as the opening act for Dave Matthews Band. Love his lyrics and the fun atmosphere at his show. Hopefully one day soon, I'll be able to catch a show again.

In Memory

There are days that you just wish you could make go away. Today is one of those for me. I was going to one of my favorite accounts today. Unfortunately, upon arrival, I learned that my jewelry dept. mgr. had passed away 3 days ago. I stood there stunned for a minute. It was 2 weeks ago that we were sharing the wonderful things going on in our lives. My daughter's wedding plans and her son's college graduation. Pat was a wonderful mgr. and I considered her a friend. I'm posting a card that was sent to her a while back as she recovered from knee surgery. God Bless You Pat! I am blessed to have known you.

Sailor Girl

Happy Monday!!!
Hope you had a good weekend. Mine was spent in Nashville on bridal overload!!! lol
My poor daughter had no idea how much planning goes into these and got just a tad overwhelmed and we are just in the beginning phases of this. She was able to get quite a bit accomplished in 2 days and we made lots of notes. My first assignment is to paint/decorate a birdcage for the cards/$ to go in. Plus she's letting me have complete design of the candy buffet - woo hoo!!!
Anyway - check out my Wynonna Tilda. LOL How bright is that red hair? At first I didn't like it - but since it's not a hair color I practice with Copics; obviously a few more attempts are needed. ;) Not sure if you can see, but stars were stamped in Versamark around Tilda.
Stamps - Tilda*stars*sentiment - Magnolia
Paper - Seaside pp(?) and SU
Ink - Memento and Copics/versamark for stars
Misc. - Kaiser Bling/MS border punch/Nestabilities/stickles
