Let's Eat Cake and WOYWW89

I really didn't have time. I needed to get a quick card done for a friend (whose nickname is Stars, hence the word on the banner). But after I put the banners on the cloud paper and stamped the sentiment on the flags, it seemed too plain so I added the twine and the bird and the butterfly and the squirrel (love that squirrel) and made it into an easel card with a second sentiment: "Let's Eat Cake".... on a Nesty label. So I took more time than I wanted to but I like it and I know Stars will like it, too. (I just have to give you a good laugh at this point.... the cloud paper said "Copyright 1997" on it! I guess I bought it over 10 years ago when I started this obsessive hobby.... Lol)

(By the way, this cool banner is a My Favorite Things die that comes in a set with the cute alphabet stamps... how cool is that? If you click on the company name above, it will take you right to the product page. And you can find "Let's Eat Cake" here. Heck... I'll give you the Lawn Fawn link for the critters, too.)


The inside needed that cloud paper again...


Now for the WOYWW desk which basically is what it looked while making this card. (Although it does have some stray papers from a project that was pushed aside while I worked on this "quick" card.)


The top left corner of the picture shows a cool label maker I picked up awhile back that has interchangeable font wheels, one of which is a cursive font.... love it. I also just noticed that my little calendar cube has the same date as last week's WOYWW. I guess I don't use it to tell me the date!
Thanks for dropping by and Happy WOYWW...

Love this card, beautiful earthy tones! That is so funny about the paper, I know I have TONS of OLD paper in my stash, I'd hate to know the date it's from! I know it has moved with me twice! LOL!

Up to your usual standard Cindy! Love the card, and I think the reason the date cube never changes is because it's got your age on the top too!!!

The only time I remember to turn a calendar is if it's got an interesting quote on each page. Being on my desk is no guarantee of attention, for sure!! Am loving those MFT(?) stamps oon the right, how cute is that gal with the camera. I have to go investigate now.

What a great card, I love the banner. Your friend has a brilliant name. It always seems to be the simple cards that take the longest!!!
I love your desk and see the obligatory mug of crafters coffee hiding among the pots and pens.
