Matching Card and My Saturday

O..M..G.. you guys. What a SUPER FUN Saturday I had. I am a member of a group named The Fisk-a-teers. Just a group of around 6 thousand girls and boys that love Fiskars products. The Fiskars leaders decided to come to 5 cities around the USA and good ole' Nashville was one of the chosen ones!!! Me and a few friends signed up immediately and I am sooooo glad I did. We had crop day like no other that I have ever experienced. We had a few hints along the way leading up to the big day and I thought some of our activitieses sounded well, lame. I just don't get into the country thing (even though I am a born Nashvillian) I love my Rock-N-Roll. Part of our adventures for the day included producing our own first ever Fisk-A-Teers record. We went the the Parlor on 16th Ave S and Music Row. Man, it was actually TONS of fun. We got to ride the F.A.D.D.'s Party Bus to the studio and back which was a treat all by itself. Once we came back and cropped a little more we walked over to the Infamous Nashville Palace and learned a line dance to "our" song. We had a private party room just for us. I have NEVER line danced before and thought fo-sho it would be silly but.....again, it was a TON of fun. Let me just mention ALL THE FREE PRIZES AND GIFTS GALORE. HOLY COW....I have NEVER seen anything like it before. Those Fiskar people know how to Par-tay!! We got scissors, rub ons, paper, tape runners, epoxy stickers, chipboard, cardstock, finger xacto knife, desk organizers, stamps, inks, bags, ribbon, embellishing flowers, chipboard albums, on and on. I happened to win the "Frankie" stamp thing AND all 12 ink pads that go with it plus 2 more stamp sets. My bestest scrappin' friend Tina won the GRAND prize which was the Brand New Fiskars Rock,Paper Trimmer!!!
the kewl new trimmer that is also an Ipod docking station, but wait....AND the flippin Ipod Nano to go with it!!! and a $15.00 card to Itunes!!!!!!! What a lucky bunch of girls we were!!! Oh and the food and snacks a plenty all of this for only a $20.00 fee! Are you kidding me??? If you are not a Fisk-a-teer you should be, it is a super fun community and it is Free to sign up!! Whew..are you still here with me??
Then on to the card. I wanted my card to match the cute little burpies and onsie that I made in the last post. I cut out a label one shape with fabric from the cuttlebug!! How fun is that felt and fabric cute out from the cuttlebug.... oh, the can of worms that have been opened. The card stock and ribbon are from my stash do I don't know the company name except for that bright pink which is Bubblegum from CTMH. The cute flower stamp is Women of Life from PTI and the sentiment is PTI Bitty Baby Blessings. I got the layout from a card in Card Trends Magazine. I love that mag, tons if fabulous artwork. Well, I must go this has been a long post and I think my family misses me! Teehee
Cheers!
