Thankful For.....

Coffee of the Day - Almond Roca

Now I need to warn you about this card......... There are probably going to be several interpretations of it. MINE was simple.... VERY simple. A bit of background - a few days ago, Thanksgiving Day to be exact, we were trying to kill a bit of time before the movie started (our annual tradition). We had just missed one showing and needed to spend about 45 minutes before the next one. Didn't want to sit in the theatre since we weren't going to be noshing on popcorn (now me and Ryan, we can eat popcorn anytime...... Mick doesn't eat any kind except kettle corn.... David won't eat movie theatre popcorn except on the rare occassion... Tyler will sometimes) since we had just finished our big meal and were going to be going home after the movie for apple/cranberry pie. Old Navy happened to be open, so we went in and browsed. I found a great pair of wild boxers for Mick (he is gonna have kittens to find that I posted this on my blog, so PLEASE do not tell him EVER!!!) for his stocking. Tyler and Ryan harrassed me to no end about buying underwear for a stocking stuffer. now mind you they have all gotten wild undies for the past few years and never complained ONCE, but anywho........

Fast forward to yesterday. I am doing my morning blurffing when I discover that I am the blessed winner of a new release stamp set at Whimsie Doodles!!!!! how cool is that? well, you have got to see what one of the stamp sets is........ really, click on this link RIGHT NOW and go look at it. PLEASE!!!!! then you will know why I HAD to have it!!! the other new releases are adorable. stinkin' adorable!!! but this one was mine - all mine. no ifs ands or butts. pun intended all the way. Tyler and Ryan were rollin' when I told them about it. only in my life would providence happen like this.

Then yesterday happened to be the last day of a challenge that Whimsie Doodles was running over at PCP - make a card about being thankful. Well, friends, my twisted mind went a bit crazy. I was quite thankful for my new stamps. And I am thankful for some strange stuff. You know that God has the 'eye roll' down quite well when He hears me start praying....... the things that must go through His mind when He listens to me are probably pretty hysterical when you think about it 'cause I am thankful for quite a lot. And so I made this card. And the panties had to be pink. would mine be any other color? do they shine? you bet your bippy they do! lots of pink shimmerz on these babies! :D

Now my guys happened to come home yesterday afternoon. I was happily surprised! Of course the music was blaring as they pulled into the driveway and the dogs truly danced for about 30 minutes after they arrived. But as the guys unpacked, I quietly finished making my card. Then I showed it to Dave. He was offended. I couldn't figure out why. Then he looked at me. and kept looking at me. Then he said, 'are you trying to tell me something?' I couldn't figure out what in the name of Sam Hill he was talking about. Then I looked back at the card. It dawned on me. My eyes got big. OH!!!!! No, that is NOT what I mean!!!!!! I had to apologize a LOT!!! so if you interpret this card THAT way, no, it is not what I intended. I really am thankful for underwear.

Have a great day!
