God Save the Queen.......PPA92.....



I logged hours of  "seat time" watching that fabulous royal wedding.  It was glorious in every way!  And I laughed when I heard that Prince Harry was serving bacon sandwiches at the survivor breakfast.  My British born mother turns 86 this week.  Her secret to longevity?  A bacon sandwich for breakfast EVERY day - go figure.............

Linda,
I LOVE the colors this week at the PPA and I LOVE this bright cheery card! Wow. I really like that everything is "kady whop" (is that word?) .... Not Straight? I love that look. the scrunchy ribbon is so perfect with that big ole' button tied... looks like the bow is tied from the pulled strings in the ribbon. BEAUTIFUL!
PS: ....... I LOVE Bacon too! Hugs.

And I thought you were going to tell the story of how we were chuckling over poor Prince Phillip having to sing God Save the Queen to his wife for 65 years! LOL What a happy card!

Look at you with all your torn edges again...for a minute I thought I was in the Stampin' Schach! ;-) Love your use of these tricky colors and all the layers are fabulous! Mmmmmm, bacon!

Debbie Henderson said...

Oh wow Linda, what a wonderful job you did with the colors! how exactly is a bacon sandwich constructed? Bread, mayo, bacon....? My hubby would go for that one!

This is just gorgeous, Linda Callahan! I love the scrunched ribbon, the torn paper, the DSP, your stamp choice, the buttons, the butterfly! I love it all! You have such a wonderful eye for design! It's just gorgeous! Sign me up for one of those bacon sandwiches!

Lidna, your card is just fabulous!!! Awesome details and I'm not a fan of scrunchy ribbon, but your card is changing my mind!!! I so enjoyed the royal wedding too. Bacon sandwiches? I could do that everyday and lately I've come pretty close!!! Happy Birthay to your mum too!!! My signature is often CAra... lol I am forever backspacing on my own name!!!

I like what you've done here, Linda. It has the illusion of the flower layer "coming out" of the layers beneath it. It's super cool! I like very much what you've done with these colors, and thank you so much for having me as a PPA Guest! It was fun. :)
