Let me tell ya about the Birds and the Bees
And the Flowers and the Trees
And the Moon Up Above
And a Name I Just Love!
As you can see, Cindy has used some artist license to change the last line of the song so that we can do one of our favorite challenges each month: the CNFS (Catchy Name Featured Stamper) where we select someone who has a catchy user name over on Splitcoaststampers (SCS). This month, Cindy chose fellow SCSer Grandma Overboard also known as Donna.
The requirements for our card is that it has to have a Grandma Overboard on it. She could have fallen out of a boat, off the stage, out of the tree, off of a flower, into the pool, off our card, into an oval, off of a building, off of a horse, out of a sleigh, out of an airplane, well, you get the picture, I'm sure with Cindy's ever over-active imagination. Hee-hee! She just has to be overboard!!
Meet Grandma Mertz Overboard. Her real name is Marilyn, but her good friends call her by her nickname, Mertz. Mertz loves da frosting and she loves da purple! She got a little carried away (also known as going overboard) with the frosting. She didn't just stick her little pinky in to sample the frosting, she dipped BOTH hands into it!!
And because I'm sure Cindy will accuse me of not using a grandmotherly image on my card, here's a close up of Grandma Mertz's hair (she never said the image had to be human):
The darling purple gingham dp, gingham ribbon, purple crystals, and purple heart button were gifted to me by my sweet friend, Dawn (Flowergal36), who was our CNFS when I hosted the challenge. Dawn knows I love purple and sent me an awesome goodie package shortly thereafter. Thanks, again, Dawn!
I hope you can play along with us this week. You can check out the details on our CCEE blog and you can also see the cards my friends made!
