Beautiful Card and the Joke of the Week!!

I want to share with you today a beautiful card that I received last week from a former roommate, current friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I am talking about Janet Forton.  I met Jan, many years ago when we were both assigned to the same apartment building when we were going to college in Eau Claire.  We hit it off immediately and became friends.  We had some great times, after college we both went our separate ways.  Jan ended up in her home town of Wisconsin Rapids and I was in Eau Claire for three more years but moved back to Neillsville.  Our paths did not cross for quite a few years until we found each on Facebook.  We also found out that were each Stampin' Up! demonstrators!!  What a small world, right?!!

Here is the beautiful card that she sent me, she belongs to a card swap group and this was one of her swaps.
She used the new In Colors Peekaboo Peach ink and card base.  Added a layer using Playful Palette Designer Series Paper and used the banner die and Scalloped Tag Topper Punch for her back drop to show off the sentiment.  She used the stamp set Thoughts and Prayers and I love how she used the flower sprig from this stamp set to randomly stamp the flowers using Delightful Dijon in on her Very Vanilla piece of cardstock.  I almost thought it was another piece of designer paper when I first looked at it!  Thanks Jan for the card and inspiration!!

I decided to come up with a Joke of the Week, just to keep things light and fun!
(And this was a true conversation between myself and my husband!)
Me:  Look at how green everything is! (As we are admiring our lawn, woods and outdoors)
Jim:  What kind of green are you seeing?
Me:  Oh,  I see Garden Green, Always Artichoke, Old Olive, some Emerald Envy and a little Mint Macaron!
Jim:  Ha! Ha!  Very funny!
Me:  I thought so!  (He knew right away where the colors came from, he's been paying attention!)

Thanks for stopping in, leave me a message!!  I always love to hear from you!
