It's Your Day!...Right?



I really seem to like the "It's Your Day!" sentiment as I use it a fair bit.  It kind of makes me giggle on the quiet for some reason.  Not sure why though, but I bet it is because I really am not sure it means what I think it means (Yes, I am a total Princess Bride devotee).  Is it a sentiment that is apt for birthdays, weddings, Opening Nights, graduations, dunno really?  I am pretty certain I was thinking more of the birthday variety on this occassion, but the use of my often employed sentiment coupled with the "Sweet"  has me thinking...what was I thinking?  Perhaps the "It's Your Day!" sentiment is of the more purposely ambiguous ones meant to bamboozle those easily bamboozled such a myself.  Yep, I am starting to think that might be it.



Present quandary aside, I whipped this card up especially for the CR84FN Color Challenge for this fortnight which showcases Yellow, Pink, and Bright Pink.  I used all Papertrey Ink stamps and the cool doily die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I am fairly certain that DP is from Prima Marketing, but I can't be 100% as it was salvaged from my scrap box.  Other ribbony/pompomy bits are from my stash as well.  This would have been a fairly quick card to make save poking out all the little bits paper from the die cut doily.  Lucky for me though, I find it rather therapeutic sitting quietly watching my freshly cut doily appear as I push the tiny pieces of confetti out of the die cut (but not so much from thinking about the extra vacuuming that will be needed).  Oh Dear.

Thanks for stopping by to have a look.  I appreciate your visits so.

Gorgeous, Jen! I love the pretty doily and fun card shape. The jar is so cute with the pom pom trim and lovely flower!

And I think you're right "it's your day" can be used for loads of occassions!

This is beautiful Jen. That doily is gorgeous and I agree, pounching them out is a bit therapeutic. It is so nice paired with the jar and that Sweet sentiment.

I cannot believe that I can actually make a comment ....... maybe because it is EARLY in the morning and the little rats are not on me :) The card is beautiful and I so love the doily die .... I LOVE making a doily in any shade of PTI that I like!!! And while I am here let me just say the WM rose card you did is so so beautiful and I really love Claire's take on the rose, I might have to invest in that beauty!!!
