Weeding, Reading and Baseball but little stamping

Hello and happy Tuesday!  I sure love spring and being outside, but sadly all that weeding and reading and the baseball games have kept me from much stamping.  But, I'm back today with a little birthday card I made for my father last week.  I enjoyed using the sketch challenge from Stampin' 411 as well as the color challenge on Splitcoast last week.  Boy, I'm sure behind posting it though! 

Surprise, I even photo'd the inside to show you.  It is quite clean & simple and didn't take long to make either.  I love the newsprint for a background- not something I've done much but will do again for sure! 
This is the birthday RAK I received from Lisette aka scrapinnut620.  Isn't it beautiful?!  I love how she used my favorite background stamp, Medallion!   And those dimensional butterflies are still sitting here on my desk making me smile (the whole card is I mean, I didn't rip them off)! 

Finally, I promised a few before and after pictures of my big bathroom project from a few weeks ago...  if I can get them to upload this time I'll be sharing them...  And if you guessed purple for my new color you are exactly right!  If I were to name a Stampin' Up! color I suppose I would call it Lovely Lilac.  Hope you like it.

BEFORE                              AFTER

Anyway, you get the idea.  Thanks for stopping by!  I'm going to try to have a Diva card for you tomorrow... but it is looking awfully sunny outside right now.  ;)
