My first card features Ms. Priscilla enjoying her beach time hanging out in the bird bath. I think our sneaky kitty might be trying to nab herself a late afternoon snack...she looks so innocent, doesn't she?! LOL! Priscilla and her bath have been colored with Copics and her collar, although not so noticeable in the photo, has been dotted with pink rhinestones. The circle image on the green paper is also a stamp from OBP. Accessories are from SU!
Next in line we have shady Al peddling his ice cream cupcakes on the beach. When I went to the beach in NY, there were always these muscle bound men walking around the beach carrying huge coolers and yelling, "fudgie wudgie bars, get your fugie, wudgie bars here..." I think Al might be one of those guys...only this time he's found himself a sweet ride with an umbrella. No more lugging the cooler around the hot beach! ;-) Al's umbrella and cart have been paper pieced with some of the Ocean collection paper, he has been colored with Copics, and his way cool shades have been embossed to give them a bit of shine. The rest of the bike (and Al) have been colored with Copics and I stamped and cut out all of those teeny, tiny cupcakes and layered them in the basket. And because Al is from NY, I had to add just a touch of bling to each corner of the card.
And lastly, we have a dainty goldfish hanging out in her bowl looking for a little love...She seems to have a lot to offer; a lovely home filled with embossed water, some green vegetation, and she even blows rhinestone bubbles! This girl's got it all goin' on!
I hope you enjoyed our journey through today's OBP and Flair cards! I know I enjoyed making them and sharing them with you!!
Have a wonderful Monday!!

This past weekend I went to NY for the weekend to attend a reunion hosted by the company I worked for from 1986 to 1998....I started when I was 19 and left when I was 31! (No doing the math to figure out how old I am now! hee hee) The folks I worked with at my old company were an amazing group of people. The company was very family oriented, even for a large, global company, and was big on promoting within. I was blessed to land a job as a receptionist just a few months after moving to NY and left as an events/marketing manager, which is still the field I'm in today at...gulp...41. :-) It was amazing to re-connect with people I hadn't seen in over 15 years. It was a really fun evening! So...without further delay...here I am at 22:
This version is just a wee bit better...at least I stayed with basic black and it doesn't look like I'll have to chisel off my make-up with a jack hammer! I've known my friend Michele for over 20 years...Wow - how does that much time go by?? We used to spend every weekend together before we both got married.I used to travel extensively...probably about 14 times a year, which meant I was never home! This handsome fellow was our VP of sales and was one of the group that I was on the road with. He's retired now but it was a blast to see him again as we always had such a great time at shows.This was the big surprise of the night for me...My friend Lisa, who I used to share an office with was at the event. I had no idea she would be there! I was pleased to hear that she and her husband had a third child, who is now an adorable three-year old! We used to laugh so much at work that I'm not sure we ever got much accomplished when we were together!And lastly, this is just a small portion of our tight-knit group that used to work and travel together. We were sad that a bunch of folks were unable to attend and have already started plotting our own mini reunion!
Thanks for letting me share my weekend photos...It was quite an event! The biggest news is that I was all alone for three days..no kiddies or hubby...boy was it quiet and I can't remember the last time I was able to drink a cup of coffee while remaining sitting! LOL! I also got to visit with my 92-year old Grandmother, who still lives alone and drives! She's amazing and it was a treat to visit with her!
Well speaking of kiddies...I've got one trying to crawl on my lap so I guess that's my signal to get off of the computer!
