How U Doin'?

German Phrase of the Day: Er sieht sehr gut aus! = He is very good-looking! I often use this phrase to describe my husband. :-)

So, How YOU doin'? Now, say that again using the same inflection as Joey from Friends. Now do you get it? I love imitating that phrase of Joey's to my husband...I just think it's funny. The other thing that is funny is my Dusseldorfer Flirt-Deckel. When hubby and I went out on the town and collected all those coaster's for Julie's gift, one of the coasters we picked up was called a Flirt-Deckel. What is a flirt-deckel you ask? It's a way to give your "deets" to someone you are interested in! I thought this was brilliant marketing on the part of some brewery ad guy! There are 4 lines to fill in with headings like "Ich hoere auf den Namen:" which means I am known by the name: and "Meine Freunde moegen an mir, dass..." which means "my friends like of me that..." etc.

Since this card showcases Beachabella flirting with Surfafella I just couldn't resist telling you about my fun find. Now of course I will never use this coaster in anything besides a scrapbook page detailing our fun night out (well...not fully detailing...wouldn't want Julia to get the wrong idea about her folks some day, right?! ;-)

Ok, on to the card. I again used this week's sketch challenge (sorry ladies!) but I did at least switch from my PTI sets to Bellas - just for Linda! I used more of my Pallet o' Prints paper (anyone else counting down the days to July 1 and the new catty?!?) and watercolor wonder crayons for the coloring. Nice quick and easy card since I had to actually clean this morning and couldn't spend all my time stamping! Oh well...guess it's gotta get done.

Supplies: (all supplies are SU! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps: Beachabella, Surfafella from Stampingbella, rough edge alpha from SU!
Confetti White, Old Olive, Lovely Lilac, Pallet o' prints DP
Jet Black Stazon, Old Olive, Lovely Lilac
Acc: Sponge, aquapainter, WWC, cutter tool kit, Word window punch
