An Ode to Amy

Well, so much for my outdoorsy plans with hubby today. Last night my brother called with an extra ticket to the Cubs game, so he's off in Chicago right now (as I sit here typing this in my Cardinals t-shirt). BUT, that means I had some unexpected crafty time, and I'm so glad I did, because today's 365 Cards challenge is just plain fun. You are to choose one of the DT cards and CASE it.

Of course, I had to select a card from my blogging bud, Amy! I chose to CASE this card (which, BTW, I happen to now have in my possession. Yeah, I know you're jealous.) I decided to pay tribute to two of Ms. Amy's loves: cupcakes and Sassafras. And the sentiment is something I could imagine her saying. Love ya, Amy!

Stamps: Cupcake Collection (PTI)
Paper: PTI white, Sassafras Lass Vintage Yummy dp
Ink: Taken with Teal
Accessories: cupcake sticker (Martha Stewart)

Well i didn't plan to go out today but my daughter loves outdoor so we went to the park and we have spent over three hours, me watching the sky and birds and sarah splashing in the water.
