- "Can you guess which animal is my favorite? Hint: I'm from 'Wiscownsin'...hahahaha!" from her post here.
- "I love red and white ... ." from her post here.
- "... a nice tall glass of lemonade with maybe just a smidge of gin in it! It's my favorite summertime drink." from her post here.
- "I just love happy things. Glitter, flowers, bright colors, balloons...sequins - happy." from her post here.
Armed with these factotatums, I made Bev this one-layer card:
Remember all those sequints I bought and sorted? The sketch has butterflies, but I think the balloons are more apt for a birthday card and, anyswizzle, Bev loves balloons and sequins, so what could be better than balloon sequins??!! I took two silver ones and colored them with a red marker. This is the maiden voyage for my boatload of sequints, so they are today's NBUS. The balloon tails were made with a stamp meant as a butterfly or bee trail.
I also took a picture of Bev's card outside in front of my "laugh" wooden art because Bev makes me laugh and it's my way of giving her a fresh virtual bouquet of flowers because flowers are also on her list of what makes her happy!
While I was outside, I saw this little damselfly. It is in the dragonfly family (Odonata) with the main difference being that when the damselfly is at rest, the wings are held alongside, and parallel to, the body. This little damselfly loves resting on the frog's head. She's a risk-taker!
