Tina Fey

I'll explain the title later but for now I wanted to share my fantastic gift I recieved today. I have this wonderful blogging friend that I am just getting to know, well sort of. She is one of my SBS2 sistahs, but her identity is a secret. She is my secret sister. I have no idea who she is, but apparently she knows a little bit about me. I got a package from her today and it had this lovely card in it.

Notice the ribbon! It has chickens on it! How did she know that I love roosters and chickens? Maybe it's just a coincidence or maybe not, but I sure do love it. Look what else was in the package! Boy do I feel spoiled!!!!
There's a mini album, sticky ribbon ( I'm gonna have fun with that, this is the first time I've seen sticky ribbon), some 4x6 papers, hand made tags, flower tags, and ribbon and this yummy turquoise cording. I was so excited, I sat down at my desk and started playing with the cording. This is what I came up with.
I used Soft Sky and White cause I loved the crisp look that it gave. The Flower(Ronna Farrer) was embossed and then colored in using Pearl Ex mixed with glue (I didn't have any lumiere). The strip across the bottom was embossed with my Cuttlebug and my new Circle EF's. I used my bone folder to make the score lines across the top and bottom and then cut along the edges with my scallop scissors. The jewels are Marcella K from Target. They came it this cool set that had glitter, brads and rhinestones. I followed Lauren's instructions to make the glittered Prima. I like the way this turned out and it only took 10 minutes to throw together. Thank you secret sister, whoever you are, for giving me the inspiration. I'm gonna have tons of fun playing with all the other wonderful things you sent.
Now, to explain the title. I was editing the picture of this card today and asked my 18 year old daughter what name I should give the file. She's got a quirky sense of humor, like her mom, and just blurted out "Tina Fey"! I said "are you kidding?" She said "no." I asked her why and she just said that she likes Tina Fey and she likes the card, and that I should just name it Tina Fey. So there you have it. The file name for this card is now Tina Fey. Isn't she funny?

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
