Happy Birthday Joy - Our Craft Lounge Sneak Peek!

Today is Joy Kennedy's birthday! Joy is one of the co-owners over at Our Craft Lounge. Kona - this cutie patootie sea turtle is one of Joy's favourites! This great set is an eP exclusive set available for a limited time, releasing tomorrow May 29, 2009.I made this little ditty to help celebrate Joy's birthday and to celebrate the release of this set. The base of the card is Whisper White by Stampin' Up! The next layer is glitter paper from Die Cuts With A View. The next layer is Whisper white again, but I used the scalloped circle Sissix die for that layer. Kona is stamped in Memento Ink and coloured with the Copics. A little bit of white gel pen was used for some highlights here and there. My oval punches were used to punch out the Kona and to layer with the designer paper. I used the Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write marker to make the squiggly lines around the edges of the scalloped circles. The bubbles are little stickers I have had for quite some many of my embellishments and bling!!!!! The words are rub-ons made by Stampin' Up!I hope Joy enjoys my interpretation of Kona!

Another very exciting thing happened last night. George Strait was named artist of the decade by the Academy of Country Music. Only four other acts have been honored as artist of the decade. They were Marty Robbins in 1969, Loretta Lynn in 1979, Alabama in 1988 and Garth Brooks in 1998. George Strait is by far one of my favourite country music stars. His voice is pure and his calm and controlled stage presence is one that will never be duplicated. He looked great sitting, watching the show with his beautiful family. I often wonder what it must be like for the artist that made the song famous (George in this case) to hear another person/group sing his song. Not only that, what must it be like for the person/group to stand up there and sing a George Strait song right in front of George Strait. What an honor. Going to a George Strait concert is definitely on my bucket list!
**this added after the show... George even said...I don't know if I could have done what y'all did, singing your songs with you sitting right there looking at me!! So George and I are on the same wave length***
Chow for now,

cute card sis!
oh and I have seen George in concert, and I must say, he is a great performer, he just stands there and sings, no dancing and gyrating, but then in those tight wranglers with the crease down the center, it might be was a great concert....hope you can go see him sometime........I missed the TV show though...dang it!
