A bit of this and a bit of that and some CPS goodness

First of all, I get to share my Card Positioning Systems blog card! We did not have a sponsor this week, so while our team just loves our sponsors, we also just love to pull out our own supplies and goodies to go with the sketch. Can you guess here, what one of my newest purchases was!
I just had to have these My Mind's Eye papers when I saw them. I love all of the newer, shaped papers that are around and I am always trying to think of how I can use them on a card since they are usually designed for 12"x12" layouts.
How do you like my little flower accent? The white, lacey flower is by Prima, I stamped on a clear button and topped that with a blue button that is secured with little, tiny, glitter brads.
And, for my greeting, I pulled out a stamp by a previous sponsor, My Sentiments Exactly. This stamp is about 5" long and so I just used a portion of it for my card. Notice that I embossed the Core'dinations cardstock with my Swiss Dot embossing plate and also notice the sanded edges of the card. I used a great WhiteWashed cardstock for the card base and by sanding it, that brought out the blue, reverse side.
Gotta share some goodness from yesterday too! Our youngest grandson was playing in the water and he filled a bucket he had. He dumped out the water in the bucket and quickly put it on his head. BUT, the bucket had had sand in it so when he removed the bucket, guess what was left all over his head!

And, guess what came to our house yesterday?

After a whole lot of names being considered, her name is now officially, TinkerBell!

It will soon be our granddaughter's 12th birthday and this little cutie is one of her birthday presents, just a bit early. Here they are meeting for the first time.
This little kitty just loves to crawl up to our shoulders and just sit there, so here she is on Grandpa and our youngest grandson is getting a close look and an exercise in being GENTLE!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
