A little birdie told me


Hope you all had a great weekend!  I spent it with my family as we celebrated my dad's birthday.  We had Japanese food for dinner at his favorite restaurant and for dessert, German chocolate cake with ice-cream.  We were all in serious food coma trying to watch the NCAA men's basketball tournament after all of that good food.  LOL!  I'll share some pictures at the end of this post.

Yesterday I met up with Kathy & Linda and their friend Belia for a little craft session.  We each created a card (Anything Goes) and then made a set for everyone to put together themselves.  I was going to do something really CAS, but Kathy had requested something with clouds so this is what I came up with...

I had to look for an outdoor themed stamp and flipped through my stamps.  This little one popped up and I knew how I wanted to use her.  I created a bright Spring time scene with some fun dies, bright fun colored papers and my Copics.  Let's see I used some MFT, La-La Land Crafts, Fiskars and CC Designs cutter dies for this card.  It took me some time to get the grass the way I wanted it, I really needed a lawn mower!  hahaha!  I finally got it to look as close to how I wanted it without ripping it out entirely. hehe!  I even did something on the inside...

I left it blank for now, well except for the scene at the bottom.  Thinking I could write just about anything on the inside, so for now it's just a scene and yay another card to add to my stash!

My friend Karen from Have a Scrap Happy Day (Hi Karen!) loves to post pictures of ono looking food.  I thought I would do the same...  I realized that although I took pictures of everyone's food, I forgot to take a picture of mine!! hahaha!  So I'll share what everyone else had...  First up is a teriyaki salmon with tempura.

Next up is another teriyaki salmon dish but with sashimi, that's raw fish for those of you that don't know what that is.

Here's more sashimi: salmon, tuna and I think yellowtail.

Last was the chicken teriyaki and tempura boat.  Well I call it a dinghy because the portions shrunk down and there is a lot of food missing, too bad the price sure didn't!  (lol)

And here's my dad, he's so cute when we started to sing, he started singing too.  I guess he likes his voice more better than ours.  LOL!  The cake was his favorite, German chocolate and we paired it with pistachio ice-cream, another favorite of his.

My dad doesn't like any fuss, but we always try to make it nice for him.  I know he appreciates it as much as we love and appreciate him.

Well it's a work night so I better get to bed, the morning will be here way too soon!  Have a terrific Monday everyone and as always thanks for stopping by!
