Frisbee - noun

 Frisbee - pronunciation
"The story involves 1950s college students playing catch with cake tins and pie pans – sometimes from the Frisbie Pie Company of New England.
There was already a plastic flying disk on the market called the Pluto Platter, and the students nicknamed it Frisbie. When Wham-O bought the rights to that plastic disk in 1957, they respelled the nickname and made it official.
Because Frisbee remains a trademark, the more earthbound generic term is flying disk."
Yay, I am so glad to be home! So glad to be crafting again, I'm not sure that my decision to not craft at all the entire week I was gone was a good one or not ;/

Quick check at the Art MoB finds that I need to make 6 female birthday cards, so expect a few, just a warning! My first one up is for Paper Smooches - Trend Watch challenge

Considering I only have 2 sets of Kim Hughes stamps, this was a happy start back into card making for me today.
Here is my card using her Surf and Turf stamps:

I colored in the little fish using distress stain first and then gelatos, finishing off with some doodling and cut him out and adhered him to the face of the card.

Also entering this in:
Creative Inspirations Paint - Anything Goes
House of Cards - Cute and Fun challenge with a color palette
Ranger - Distress Stain
Tattered Angels - ink spray
Faber Castell - PITT pen, metallic gelatos
CARDZTV - birthday stamp

So fun! Love the sentiment, as it is so funny and I have a few girlfriends who would appreciate that sentiment. They are always "29". I used to travel with a few things to color or something, but now I just take a break and find I am more excited to get into my stamp room when I return. Enjoy the day!

This is so cute! I love the fishie, and how she is kind of nice and mean at the same time!

I recently went away for a week and didn't craft. It was not fun. I've learned that my crafty things need to come with me wherever I go!
