Jellypark Friends 8-23-2013 Release

Hey, did you miss me? I haven't posted for such a lonnnng time! At least 12 hours. Yeah, we've got to stop meeting like this. It's making me dizzy.

So today is another release day at JP. And there is a darling boy in a plane, as well as the set of 3 birds that I chose to use today. So be sure to stop by the blog and check out both of them, as well as the creations by my talented teamies. And while you're at it, the new challenge is up with some wonderful inspiration by my other talented teammates! (The new challenge is Things with Wings. I know you can come up with something fabulous for that.)

Gary and I are going to Distrito, in Scottsdale, tonight with our monthly dinner club. I am so excited! I have only been there once, about a year ago; the food is so yummy and the atmosphere is so much fun. Can't wait. The Margaritas are really delicious, too! Bet you aren't going to enjoy your meals as much as I do. Neener, neener. (OK, I'd let you slap me silly right now if you could reach me.)

I am doing my best to take my mind off this card. Because it's just a ghastly attempt to do justice to the darling birds. Seriously. I had a plan when I started this card. I printed the birdies on MICBC and colored them with my Copics and Twin Touch Brush markers:

C1, C2, RV00, RV32, RV34, TTR2, BG32, BG34, Y04, Y06, Y08, Y19

The plan was foiled by me getting ink in an area that was supposed to be left white--this was, of course, after I had finished coloring the birds. Too late to start over. And, to add insult to injury, I added some Washi tape in the wrong area. When I was removing it, the paper ripped. So I had to keep tape in that spot after all. Don't you love when that happens? So my design is not what I had in mind when I started, and I hope Claire doesn't groan too much over what I did with her darling birdies. Sigh...

I added a bit of Pearl Pen to the birds and, as I said, some Washi tape to the card. My DP is from the MME Lost & Found Blush collection and I distressed it with my Zutter. The CS is from Stampin' Up. I promise to do better on my next assignment at JP.

Well, guess I will go and soak my head. Then I'll cry me a river. And then I'll read some more of the book I am into right now. Then I'll get ready for that fabulous meal that awaits me.

We are headed to the Cardinals preseason game against the San Diego Chargers tomorrow night. Gary is golfing on Sunday, bad wrist and all. (Rolling eyes right now.) And then we have a Fantasy Football draft Sunday evening. Wish me luck; I'm going to need it.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks so much for your fun comments on my activities yesterday. You know your thoughts are so near the truth of what a mammogram is. lol! Have a great weekend Penny.

  4. I have to tell you if you did not say anything we would of not noticed. Your card is so much fun. The birds you colored are adorable and love the colors you used, they are stunning. The washi tape fit in wonderful with the birds. Love the card.

  5. Great coloring of the new Jellypark image, Penny. So cheerful!

  6. Um. You're insane. The birdies are too cute and colored really beautifully. I love the Washi tape where it is. That clip is the perfect accent and I also love how you did the sentiment.

    I hope you didn't drown in that river you cried needlessly.


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate the kind comments more than I can say! :^)
Hugs, Penny
