Another week has started and it looks like it is at least going to be a pretty day if not a cold one. I really wish it would warm up again, but I am not going to complain too much. Just having the sun out is nice, trust me!!! LOL!!
Well, we had a really nice Sunday yesterday. I got to do some stamping, Jason cleaned out the garage and Izzy harassed Tuxy. All in all a nice day. Poor Tuxy I seriously worry about him sometimes. All Izzy does is torment him, and I know she does it on purpose. She even made him move the other day while he was laying on the floor because she wanted to get by. Nevermind there was six feet on either side of him that she could have used. No she had to walk right through him! LOL! Poor, poor, long suffering Tuxy!
So, I guess I have been lazy lately. I only have one card to share with you today! Boooo! I know. I would have had two, but I lost my little fish buttons and have to pick up some more today at Michaels. I really hate when that happens, but I have a strong suspicion that somebody's little hands accidentally put them in the trash and then they got thrown away. LOL! Anywhoo, the project I have for today is a birthday card for Izzy's friend Lucy who will be turning two this week. She is the sweetest little girl who's favorite colors are purple and pink. So when I saw this image from Pink Gem Designs I knew it would be perfect!!! I used last week's Sketch Saturday Challenge sketch for the layout.
Isn't the image adorable!!!! I love it! Anywhoo, I started this card off by stamping Birthday Milly by Pink Gem Designs on white card stock and colored her in using my copics. Following the sketch, I then layered on two different shades of purple card stock and DP from DCWV and K and Company. I used my nesties to cut out the circles and scallops and added purple brads to the four corners to add some color. I finished the card off by printing the purple 2 on my computer, cutting it out with my nesties along with a piece of card stock, popping it off my image and adding some pearls down the middle. I really wanted it to mimic the polka dot paper. I just love the way this card turned out. I wish though that I had thought to mask off the candle and add a second one. Oh, well. Need to keep that idea in mind for next time! LOL!
So here it is, my Izzy story. It kind of goes along with the story above where she is harassing poor Tuxy. Okay, let me preface this story by saying that Tuxy absolutely hates baths. I mean with a passion!!! He won't even go near a tub if he hears water running. So on Saturday morning, Izzy gets up out of bed and does her usual morning cuddles with Jason and I. But instead of asking Jason for waffles like she does every week, she turns to him and says, "Tuxy bath. Tuxy bath." Jason and I were a little stunned. So I said, "Izzy do you want to give Tuxy a bath?" And the little rascal says, "Please!" and starts scurrying off to the bathroom. Of course being as how Daddy is completely wrapped around her finger, guess who got a bath later that morning? Poor, poor Tuxy. So here is my picture of Izzy showing Daddy how much she enjoyed Tuxy's bath.
Well, everyone, thanks so much for stopping by!!! I always enjoy it! Off on a busy day today. Lots of smiles!
