Top of the Muffin to ya!

There may be only one other person on earth that will think this is as funny as me! Amanda, this one is for you! BTW, Amanda has a great quilt shop in Maine. Check out her blog here and her shop here! I am teaching a quilt class at her shop in May. I used to quilt all the time.... then I had a child. Needed more room, turned quilt room into baby room, Yadda Yadda Yadda! (see Seinfeld again).

Ok, here is the card. (Card good, photo bad) I used Papertrey Ink, It's A Celebration set for this one. The muffin tops are all stacked up in different brown inks and shadowed with a copic marker. Somehow some of them ended up looking a bit pink when paired up with the PTI pink polka dot paper.

I am in love with this other paper (the plaid one)from We R Memory Keepers. The colors of this pattern are actually perfect with the two PTI pinks and with the Spring Moss color as well. I bought every piece of this color at my LSS this weekend. Hoard much? Why yes, I do!
I actually made a wicked cute sketch book with this paper over the weekend.

I printed the sentiment on my computer and used the tag from It's a Celebration to frame it. The ribbon was the last of my brown American Crafts (insert sad face here). I literally had just enough to get this bow tied. I stole a tip from Nichole's blog and used the back of the satin ribbon for a little different look. Nothing drastic but just a little different. The tag is hung with a piece of hemp cording that I colored with a copic marker.

I think that is about it. Sorry the photo of the card is a little off. I had to take it this evening so that I could get this post up. I'm going to be busy the next couple of days and wanted to make sure I got this post up here. This post has taken me an hour to get done. Watching the Red Sox and blogging at the same time... not so easy. I have the TV turned around towards the computer so I don't have to move from my seat, just turn around and the big 32" screen is right in front of me. And the Sox are winning! So far!

A quick picture of Tyler. He rode his tricycle all around then he went "fishing" with a stick in the tiny trickle of a stream behind his swing set. Sat right down on the bank by the stream and fished for 10 minutes or so .

Your card is great.....I had to look first to see what was stacked on top of each other....and of course, it was the very best part of the muffin. Joan

Yes I'm proud to be Amanda, the other muffin-top and Seinfeld lover. (Not that there's anything wrong with that...) :)
