What a wonderful day!!!

I've hardly slept.  Started watching the BBC coverage of the royal wedding just before 3 AM EST.  Switched over to NBC at 4 AM EST and have only taken a break from coverage long enough to take the boys to school!  What a beautiful event!  I couldn't get over how calm and relaxed they both looked and how what an absolutely gorgeous couple they are!  HER DRESS!!!  Wow is all I can say!  One of my favorite parts was when Kate was walking up the aisle with William's back to her and just before she got up to the alter, Harry turned around to sneak a peak and got the biggest smile and turned back and whispered something to William.  I'm sure it was something to like..."wow, wait til you see her!"  Here's to the beginning of their happily ever after! 

The next thing making me smile and happy today is....

MY E2 IS "OUT FOR DELIVERY"!!!!!! 

Now, the only thing bad about this is that our UPS man doesn't normally get here until mid to late afternoon...and patience is not one of my virtues!  I'm hoping it's a light delivery day and he will be here early!  :)  A girl can dream can't she!?!?

I am working on getting pictures of my projects and the blog write ups done for our Disney/Pixar Blog Hop starting tomorrow.  But in the meantime I have a card to share with you that I made yesterday for my friend Stephanie's daughter, Maggie.

Miss Maggie is having her tonsils out this morning.  Actually....she is probably already in the recovery room as I type this.  I'm sure she was a trooper!  She's a pretty tough girl!  I am going to take this card with a box of popsicles over to her later today as a sweet little recovery treat for her. 



The popsicle is cut from Doodlecharms at 5" from Colorbok Pearlescent paper and Kraft cardstock.  I used my (NEW!!!! So happy to have it now!) Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder on the sticks and some Stickles and ink to give the popsicle some sparkle and dimension.  The background paper is SEI.  The ribbon is crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot, topped off with a button by Spare Parts (which was in a box of goodies I recently won from Deborah's blog Cricut Project of the Day!) and a small piece of Twinery Baker's Twine!

I am entering this card in the polka dot challenge at The Paper Variety.
How do you like my new easel?  I have been searching high and low for one of these flower frog thingies that so many card makers seem to be using to display their work on for pictures.


I had seriously never heard of one of these things!  My friend Kaye from Yesterday's Tomorrow 2011 (whom by the way is participating in our Disney/Pixar Blog Hop this weekend and will NOT tell me what her project is, EVEN THOUGH I had to cut her Mickey heads out in various sizes for her to complete her project!!) is the one who told me what this was called and what it was actually made for.  Learn something new every day!   Anyways....since I am still on my quest to find a flower frog, I ran across the easel in my card picture at Hobby Lobby earlier this week and scooped it up!

Well...since I am forced to stay home and wait for the UPS driver today it looks like I just might get some crafty stuff done.  I SHOULD clean my house, but since the weekend is upon us....it can wait!  :)  Hope you all have a fabulous Friday and don't forget to come back tomorrow for....

Adorable card! I like the easel you found. Hopefully, I can find one of them at Michaels or Joann's in my neck of the woods. That's so exciting that your E2 is arriving today!! Congrats!--Pat N.

Love your card. You've probably already had a bunch of people tell you this but I'm going to repeat it--Antique Shops, that's where you'll find floral frogs. My grandmother used to have several of them. What I wouldn't give to have just one of them now.

I have been looking for one of those flower frog thingies too. I didn't know what they were called, so it is a little hard to find something if you don't really know what it is. :-) Love the cute card and the easel.
