Friends on World Card Making Day!

Hi there! Happy World Card Making Day

In spite of phones and texting and Face Plant and Twiddle and so many people thinking they don't have time to bother with sending cards in the mail any more, cards are a maxibazillion dollar industry. For those of us who make our own cards, we have Our Own Day!! 

Here is my card celebrating friends:
The embossing folder is "Linear" by Lifestyle Crafts. The owl and female fox are ... wait. Hold up. 

Honestly, people, I thought that female critter was a fox. Hammy looked through all my critters (and there are a lot of them) and told me it was a female fox. But now that I am typing this, I'm not so sure. Is that a cat? Seriously, is it? Because, darn it, I was going to enter a challenge that calls for "Forest Friends." Sigh. But, wait, there are feral cats, right? Okay, you convinced me. 

So as I was saying the owl and the (muffled) and the toadstools are from Paper Smooches and the male fox is from Papertrey Ink. The friends sediment from My Sentiments Exactly is copper-embossed. The branch is from Memory Box. The googlie eyes are from my googlie-eye stash. The critters are watercolored using my watercolor pencils. 

Here is a close-up of the coppery shine and winking:

Look Who's Here!
Could I be any happier embracing my bloggie friends in front of the Playhouse?!

A lot of you have already seen two of these talented bloggie friends gracing the pages of my blog before. They are Harriet on my right and Kim on my left. And on Kim's other side I'm squeezing none other than the fabulous Greta! On Thursday we were all delighted to meet each other live and in person!

Greta is from Oregon and she is just as charming and fun-loving as I imagined she would be from her wonderful blog, GG Creations. If you don't know these three ladies, you are missing out on a lot of mega-talent and inspiration!

Greta's sister Laurie lives nearby and she also joined us. She kindly took the photos for us. Thank you, Laurie! It was a pleasure to meet her, as well!

~~~

I think everyone also knows how much I love cinnamon rolls, right? Well, sweet Kim made and brought us all cinnamon rolls to have with our coffee AND she made another pan just for the Mister and me! What a friend to have, right?! Thank the Lord for elastic waistbands and PALEEESE do NOT tell the Mister about this pan of rolls! He'll never know and anyways, I've only got his best interest at heart because he's pretty much confined to the bed, so this much decadence would not be good for him. Cough.

My sisters are going to be so drooling when they see this! And, yes, they are that good!
One last share for you:
Greta brought us gorgeous handmade frames which she made by foiling and die-cutting fun foam and I wanted to show you mine. Isn't it pretty? You'll see other examples of this awesome idea in several recent posts on her blog!

New Friends Corner

This post is running long, so I will be back to introductions in my next post.

~~~

Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!*

As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower! Please let me know you came by, so I can be sure and return the flavor when the Mister is up and running again. I'm happy to say we've been drama-free the rest of this week and his leg is slowly improving!

LesleyG said...

Happy cardmakingday! Fab card and even more fab pics, what great friends xxx

Sue said...

Loving the card. Think it is a female cat, but she could still be friends with the owl and fox.

Always lovely to have friends visit, especially if they bring such lovely treats. The frame is lovely and those Cinnamon Rolls look good enough to eat:)

Hope you have a lovely day. Sue

KandA said...

Love your super critters card Darnell. Fabulous photos of you all and those cinammon rolls look so delicious that I've started drooling. Best not to tell the Mister... I mean you wouldn't want him falling over at night in the dark while sneaking off to eat one in secret xx

Aileen (mum) said...

Mmmm the wild (cant remember how to spell that other word) cat certainly fits the bill. All boxes ticked. Great card, love that copper embossing. How wonderful having a get together with a great bunch of friends. And cinnamon scrolls, ohhhhhh Ihate you. No not really, glad you all had a great time. And Ipromise I wont send the Mister an email informing him of your secret.

scrAPpamondo said...

Your card is beautiful and the critters are so cute. I think this in the top is a female kitten, but pheraps she could be a "fox of city"... :D Lol Anywhere, they are three good friends, and that's all. :)
Beautiful crafting friend reunion, you are very sweet toghether!

Marilyn said...

Adorable card!! Happy cardmaking day!!

Claire said...

I'd say it's a cat for sure Darnell...especially with those beautiful big, green eyes. Not sure if she's feral...she looks like she's wearing a pearl collar! Such a fun card - lucky you meeting up with all your bloggy friends again - so jealous of those cinnamon rolls!

Jenny L said...

Hi Darnell,
Happy card making day.
Love your super card.
As always beautifully crafted.
Great photos of your blog friends looks like you were having such a good time too.
Now you have made my mouth water with those cinnamon rolls.
Love and big hugs from my house to yours.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Pat said...

I love your cute critters Darnell with lots of sparkle and a pretty embossed background too. How great to have a meet up with three of your blogging friends and love the frame that Greta gave you, a really lovely gift, and some yummy cinnamon rolls! x

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Jeanne said...

So thrilled for you, Darnell, to have been able to enjoy the company of your bloggy friends AND that you were gifted with some dee-lish-ous looking cinnamon rolls. Your card is so fun! Feral cats...yep that is a thing and I'm sure they live in the forest. :) I adore your spirit, Ms. Darnell! Thanks for sharing!

Lynette said...

Cute card with the two foxes:) How fun to meet with friends. I love cinnamon rolls, too, and I promise not to let the Mister know that there is an extra pan laying around your house!

Maura R said...

Great forest friend card, Darnell - and for today, I think the image in question is clearly a fox! What a sweet treat to have a visit from some card-making friends and a pan of cinnamon rolls, to boot. Life is sweet.

What fun! A great card, great friends and great cinnamon rolls. What could be better! (My Mister has been bed bound after ankle surgery 3 weeks ago too) Anyway, thanks for playing along at The Card Concept!!

Helen F. said...

Hey Darnell, LOVE this fab friends card. My vote is, female cat who is friendly with the owl and fox ;-)
Such a lovely way to spend World Card Making day OR any ol' time~~3 friends visit! The frame is pretty and those Cinnamon Rolls look too darn good :-p Is Kim sharing the recipe?
Hope your husband is doing well. {{{HUGS}}}

Gorgeous card Darnell and fabulous pics of you all!!! and those rolls look delicious!!!! huggles Sue xx

Karen Petitt said...

Love those super cute critters Darnell - the cat is gorgeous and the next lot of stamps I purchase has to have cats and dogs as I don't have many stamps of them. As for the cinnamon buns oh yummy!!! Love cinnamon swirls and buns and the photo made my mouth water lol! Lucky, lucky ladies to get together and to get to see your playhouse: very jealous I am! Hope you and the Mister have a good weekend Karen xx

Kath said...

A lovely card - I make and send so many birthday, Christmas and 'just because' cards and love enjoy receiving them too! Great photos - sounds like you all had a good time.
Kath x

Anita in France said...

Your shimmery critters are so cute, Darnell ... I'm thinking the middle one definitely has foxy tendancies ... even if she does look rather feline like! Fabulous photo of you lovely ladies ... and of Kim's cinnamon rolls. You're such a sweet thing dealing with the extra ones so they're not around to tempt Kevin ... selfless is what it is!! Hugs & bisous, bisous, mon amie, Anita :)

Greta said...

Hi Darnell--Haven't stopped thinking about our wonderful time together! Such a treat to meet you & Kim & Harriett in person--just like we'd known each other for years! Now my mouth is drooling again remembering the delicious cinnamon rolls my sis & I loved! Totally adorable card--love the embossed background & the colored winked animals are beautiful! Friends sure do make life worth smiling & I'm grateful you're one of mine! Hoping The Mister is seeing improvement! Big hugs, Greta

Dora B. said...

Aren't young foxes called 'kits'? She' s just a cute baby! Love that owl with the googly eyes too.

Colleen said...

Hi Darnell! Oh how lucky to gather with those friends and to meet Greta face to face!! Oh... and to have not one but two pans of those awesome buns! You are indeed selfless, only thinking of The Mister... he should really thank you and appreciate all that you are sacrificing for him!! *wink

Fabulous cards, my friend enjoy the World Card Making day with those lovelies!!
Heart Hugs, Colleen

Happy World Card Making Day, Darnell! Cute card and wonderful photos! You are so lucky to be able to meet this talented group! Looks like so much FUN!

sandie said...

Happy Card Making Day. I have actually had time this year to play all afternoon and made a few cards. I think your card is adorable and so perfect for today. Who cares if the lady fox is a cat, she looks like she could persuade us to believe she is anything!
Great to see this photo and that frame is just perfect.
Oh and thanks for joining The Card Concept x

Janis said...

My inner crow loves all things sparkly and shiny!! What lovely shimmer your card has!!! Love that embossing, too.

How fun to see the photos of you meeting your bloggy friends! Hope you will get to meet my bloggy friend, Karen, soon!!!

I love all your darling forest friends, Darnell, and your real life friends, too. I'm so glad you got a chance to get together and craft. Maybe Hammy needs glasses, but I think a feral cat works, although she's way too cute for that.

Maria A. said...

Aww!! this little critters are adorable, love their googly eyes!!! Super sweet card Darnell, but I bet those cinnamon rolls are even sweeter, YUMMY, YUMMY IN MY TUMMY!!!!!
I can see the shimmer on your forest friends, looks fabulous.
Looks like you and your friends had a wonderful time crafting, that is awesome.
Thank you for sharing.
Hugs,
Maria.

Verna Angerhofer said...

Awesome little scene card. I love that and was about to try my luck at a scene card too as well to celebrate World Card Making Day! It will have to be a quick one as I am not finding much time for my card making lately.

Redanne said...

I LOVE your friends card, the little animals are so, so cute and I love the gorgeous embossed background. What a lovely photo of your and your blog pals too and the frame is just stunning. I do so envy the ladies spending time with you, I wish you were not quite so far away (sad face)... Hope Mister does not have to stay bedridden for too much longer, he must be very frustrated. Go on, let him have one cinnamon bun.... Hugs, Annie xxx

ionabunny said...

That's definitely a wild thing! The pearl necklace is a dead giveaway!! Every well dressed foxy girl needs a pearl necklace. Very sweet card. Hope mister is mending. Hugz

rachel said...

hiya darnell - oh yum those cinnamon rolls look amazing - and your makes are very delicious too! Love that you have blog buddies with you too! Brilliant! Hugs rachel x

Ruth said...

Loving your card! Think that embossed background just gives it a little something else. So glad you've had some friends to play with and who bring you yummy food - they're the best of friends!!! Xx

Kathleen said...

Fabulous images, I'm going with the cat and gorgeous sparkle, brilliant card.

Kath x

Pat Jandacek said...

I haven't commented for a while but follow your every post. So glad you're maintaining your sense of humor and making time to spend some in the Playhouse. If there's any question about your lovely animal, I'll swear that it's definitely wild and just happened to be trying out it's Halloween costume. I do hope your Mister is also keeping a sense of humor through his ordeal. All you girls are so photogenic and I'm so envious - of that and your get-together, and the cinnamon rolls.

Vicki Dutcher said...

Adorable card! Those eyes made me smile. How fun having fellow stampers over! What a fabulous photo of all of you!!

Geri said...

You lucky girls! Crafty pals AND cinnamon buns! Ah, life is great!

Love your card! Yep - I'm thinking it is definitely a fox! Nice shimmer and shine to glam up the forest critters! Love that ef too!

So now I am heading to our local bakery to buy some cinnamon buns....for our holiday of course! Not sure if the package will make it home though...

JoAnn said...

Such a cute card with those adorable images.
So glad you got to meet up with your bloggie friends. I am familiar with Greta's blog. That is a beautiful frame she made. Great photos too. TFS

Cat Craig said...

Adorable card Darnell, and what fun to meet Greta in person. She is such a sweetheart. I bet you gals all had a ball. Still keeping good thoughts for the mister!

frommycraftroom said...

A cute sparkly card.
What a fun day you must have had in the playhouse :)

Craftychris said...

Love your cute critter card! I think the female fox could be that or a feral cat! The joy of craft is that anything can be anything you like! It's scary what thinks are in my head sometimes! Tee hee! Looks like you had a lovely time with your friends - yummy food too! Hugs to you and the Mister. Take care both of you. Luv Chris xxx

KT Fit Kitty said...

I just love critters and especially kitties! Your card is precious! I love it! Happy World Card Making Day!

Carol L said...

It's all in those critter eyes I tell ya - and whatever that critter is with the big eyes, let's call it a CAX!! Yes, it's a new species from the woods behind your home :) Cute card as always, and I love the pic of you and your bloggy buds - great smiles :)

Bonnie said...

LOL (or is it HA?)! Fox or cat, this is adorable and fun! And how fun to get together with so many talented friends! Hammy must have been beside himself!

Teresa Kline said...

hello Darnell! oh my what a super fun card, adorable images and fabulous coloring! your photos with friends is AWESOME, nothing better than meeting crafty friends, oh, I guess meeting crafty friends with cinnamon rolls....*grin* so glad you played along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

sparkle & shine *~*

MackieMade Paper Creations said...

What a fun, adorable card!!!! It looks like a fox to me!!! Thanks for sharing it with us here at The Card Concept!
And love seeing the photos! I bet y'all had a great time!!!

JD/ Jill said...

Cute card! Glad you were able to meet with your friends...great pic of all of you!

dottielottie said...

Happy card making day to you too Darnell, love your cute critter card, I think that is a kitty cat though you could say she is a very foxy lady cat lol. That is a lovely photo of you and your crafty friends you all look so happy, is this before or after the cinnamon rolls ? :). Hope the Mister is improving a little more each day and things soon return to normal for you both. Sending hugs love Lottie x

Lisa said...

I think a cat could live in the forest. Was Wonderland a forest? The Cheshire Cat lived there right..sounds good to me! Cute card with all those happy little critters. Sure wish I could have been there with all you pretty ladies. If hubby had known there were cinnamon rolls involved, he might just have driven me cross country!!

Celeste Goff said...

Such an adorable card! I love the little googly eyes you added to your darling little critters!

Jane Willis said...

I can't believe I missed World Cardmaking Day! Spent a glorious day in London learning how to make Peking Duck, sank exhausted into my seat on the train home, opened Bloglovin on my phone and there were all these yummy posts about a party I'd lost my invitation to. However I got to eat freshly made Peking Duck and you didn't, so I win!
I love, love, love your card, especially the FOXY CAT. There, I've got her into both CAT-egories.
Jane

Karen Mead said...

Your card is adorable Darnell and I love all the critters:) So wonderful to see you meeting some fabulous crafty ladies....I wished we lived closer! I hope things with you are well - sending hugs xx

Ros Crawford said...

Oh how lovely to meet your friends ... Greta and I are blog friends too so I envy you meeting up!! Fabulous card there too Darnell ... And I'm making buns at the moment too!

Marybeth said...

Wonderful picture of you girls so glad you were able to get together for a bit. The rolls look delicious!
Your sweet critter card is adorable and to think I did t make one card yesterday :( ! Fox and friends...haha!
Hope we all get some rain here in CA. Hugs

Karen B said...

Oh Dippy, I'm in love with that gorgeous owl.........such a great fun card but you can't label that cutie pussycat as "feral", but you do have two woodland friends so I'm sure that will be enough for the challenge. Great photo of you with your blogging pals - how lovely to be able to meet up to share those gorgeous looking cinnamon rolls and crafty chatter.

Hugs.

Paper Creations by Shirley said...

What a fun post again. I recognized the very charming Greta in your photo, the frame she made is beautiful. How wonderful that you met more of your blog friends. Your card is lovely as well, so cute with the Owls. The cinnamon rolls look very tasty. Have fun, Hugs xxx

Glittered Paws said...

Love your blog and in fact have visited it quite often - so now I am a Follower - YEA. Love your narratives with your posts and of course the cards are so amazing too, great fall Friends card. PS any cinnamon rolls left???

Brenda in IN said...

i think that is a kitty. Whatever it is, it is so cute. What a perfect card to show along with the picture of your friends. My mouth dropped open and I screamed "that's Greta"! You have the bestest of friends and how fun to get to meet them in person. Kim's rolls made my mouth water just seeing them!

KayM said...

Well, I have that stamp set, and I'm pretty sure that's a cat! But hey, if it's colored fox colors and sitting with a "male" fox (not sure how you know that) then it's a fox right now right? heheh! Anyway, the whole card is just adorable!! So happy that you had friends over to the playhouse! I'm jealous. I want to come to the playhouse too one day! Have a happy week! ((Hugs))

LauraJane:) said...

Had to stop in and drool over the rolls!! Best way to enjoy the baked goods...just look at'em right? HA!
Super to see you had a playdate with some happy crafty friends! I totally missed WCMD, fall is just so busy around my neck of the woods:/

Inkyfingers said...

What a fun card Darnell and I love the different sized googlie eyes - just perfect!
You certainly look to be having fun with the bloggie friends and those cinnamon rolls look amazing. I'm so impressed that you have protected the Mister from the devastating effects of eating them. True love knows no bounds my friend!
Hugs
Carol x

conil said...

Darn! Darn! Darn!...I am so irritated I missed this confab, coffeklatsch and a chance to meet these remarkable women. Nuts! And those cinnamon rolls...ack. If you're not sharing them with the Mister, does that mean there are more for you? Hmmmmm. I'm sure you all had a lot more fun then I did this weekend. Getting back to your card, which is adorable, by the way. Love how you mix your stamp sets...and the sentiment is terrific. Hope things are progressing better in the healing department for the Mister. Think of you both often and with love.

Barb said...

What a lovely post Darnell. Your shimmery critters are very cute. It's a very pretty card. And what a happy photo of you with your friends. The photo frame made by Greta is a very clever idea. She does some lovely work. The cinnamon buns look delicious. I think Mr. might really enjoy them! Seriously I do hope he's soon up and about again. Barbxx

Kathyk said...

Super yummy .. that would be both today's make AND those cinnamon rolls!

Will you be bringing cinnamon rolls with you in July!?!?!??!?

oldpunca said...

It is always pleasure when you meet people you know from the blogs. :-) I'm happy for you. It seems you girls had a very good time. :-)
Your card with forest animals is so sweet. I like the design and your perfect water colouring with sparkles.
Have a nice week,
Sonja

Sharon Underwood said...

What a cute card! I'd say that one critter you were asking about is actually a cat, but then again I'm biased because I have a cat! It's cute, no matter what it is! Love the pictures from your gathering. I'm so glad you got to meet some blog friends!

Kim Heggins said...

Sweet, fabulous and just beautiful Miss Darnell! Love your sweet trio of critter friends, what ever they are, so cute with the google eyes, love them. Thank you again for inviting me over on Thursday, I had a blast and so happy you and the rest of the sweet ladies loved the cinnamon rolls. As for not sharing with Mister....the way I see it, it's your waist line not his! Thanks again for being a sweet hostess!

Happy Dance said...

Smitten with the critters. And IF she's a cat, then she's one FOXY lady!! So that, in my world, qualifies her as a real vixen!! This is so sweet! Love the winking that they're all doing, Stella and googly! Cool ef too. Hmmmmmm....that might mean some more NBUS in my stash soon. And a party at the playhouse...how lovely. One of these days, I'm packing my suitcase and paying you a visit. Hope the Mister is on the upswing, and never finds out about the cinny rolls. Looks like a wonderful day. Lucky lady. Missing you. Bev

Susanne Vargas said...

Love your friends card and the picture of all the stamping friends! So nice that you met sweet Greta! And those cinnamon rolls look mouthwatering! Mmmmm!

Taunya Butler said...

Avery special and Beautiful card that showcases what we all treasure - friends, and even better, CARD making Friends!! You are a delight and someday I want to be in a picture with you!!! Have a BEAUTIFUL week!!! Hugs to you!!!

Shona Chambers said...

Those rolls......OMG, I can't stop thinking about them...must email Kim to see if I can bribe her for the recipe!! What a happy lot you are and it must be so much fun to all meet in person. Oh the giggling that must go on! And the female critter, I always thought it was a cat but the more I look at it, I'm not so sure now. Its a gorgeous card anyway and I'm so in love with that embossing folder you used....tiny triangles are magical!

Kelly Deal said...

Hi Darnell! I love the card that you created. Those critter stamps are adorable. Those cinnamon rolls made my mouth water and the frame that your friend Greta made is beautiful. Have a wonderful week ahead!

OH Babs said...

I love your friends card and your friends photo. Cinnamon rolls? Handmade cinnamon rolls, that girl is talented. Making cinnamon rolls would be dangerous because I would probably eat the whole tray. Elastic waistbands come with old age and I love them. Your secret is safe with me. Have a great week and hope Kevin continues to heal.

Giorgia Rossini said...

lovely card!

Pia S said...

What a sweet woodland themed card you've made. The female one looks like a fox, but she's a very versatile lady of many faces so I'm sure she can work as other animals as well:)

Carol said...

Such a fun card Darnell, loving your critters. Sounds like you've been having fun...those cinnamon rolls look wonderful even if I'm not allowed to eat them any more. Love the frame, so pretty. Carol x

Irish Cherokee said...

I do believe the critter could be either/or a fox or kitty. I think it makes a grandiose lady fox. Love the card. Lucky you getting to meet so many crafters. Tell Kevin I said hi.

Love, Hugs and Blessings to you both.
Jim

Marianne said...

I'm afraid the creature in the middle is a cat rather than a fox. And I should know haha because I'm a fox (my last name is Vos, which translates as fox in English lol) and I'm a cat lover. Of course, even foxes can be wrong sometimes. But hey, your other critters are definitely creatures of the forest and they can have all sorts of friends, right? It must be great to meet up with crafty friends, especially if they are good cooks too. Hope Kevin's leg will continue to heal steadily. my DH is still going strong. He's half way through his 3rd round of chemo and does not suffer from any serious side effects, except being very tired. I'm working hard trying to thaw my frozen shoulder and even managed tomcreate two cards on WCMD using lots of nbUS. Yay!

hazelspaperdesigns said...

That is an extraordinarily cute critter card! Love that coppery shine too. Wish you hadn't shown me those cinnamon rolls. Lucky that drool can be wiped from iPads... So awesome to be able to meet with your bloggy friends and have such a wonderful time sharing together!! Woodland friends and bloggy friends - you got it all, including a pretty frame to capture the day for posterity. Just Precious, Darnell!

Di said...

Squeal!!!!!!!!!1 How did I miss this Darnell?!?! How wonderful that you got to meet Greta, I just spotted the news on her blog as I was closing the Playground down for the night before going to bed. LOVE your card too!

Hugs

OH, Darnell, what a FUN post!
How wonderful that you got to meet Greta--and hang out with friends.
Sure sounds like you'll had a wonderful visit.
Love your card & all the photos you shared.
