Thanks for a friend...


I made this card today as a thank you for a friend who had my hubby and I over for dinner. Normally, I would just thank my friend profusely and offer to have them over next and soon. But, the new me is hoping to pay it forward a little more in 2008 by letting those I care about... know it! I had fun with this card. I basically did three layers of flowers (Happy Harvest by Gina K. Designs). I stamped it once on the patterned base, once on white and then once on pink for the centers. It is kind of like my psychedelic card that I did with this set a few weeks ago. I love how soft this color combo looks. The rest is just pretty simple --punch a scalloped oval, layer, add ribbon and some pearls and done!

Funny story. We were sitting down to dinner tonight. I guess I haven't really been good lately about cooking. You know, with the holidays it always seems like a chore because you have so much on your plate. So, we had leftovers or went out for a cheap meal. Well, funny hubby that I have says,"It's pretty surprising that you've cooked at home this whole year. I glare. A minute passses. He says, "That's kind of funny." I look back at him. Another minute passes. "Isn't it??" I mean to tell you, I had to do EVERYTHING in my power not to bust a gut laughing. I later laughed and told him I was just teasing him back. Funny, funny man!!!!

Until tomorrow!
