Coffee of the Day - more Moon Pie 'cause it is THAT good!
I am so excited about today's post! first off, Mick's most fabulous girlfriend, Jocelyn, is here staying with us through the weekend. we love every time she comes for a visit! she's also working out at Camp, but I'd much rather focus on the time she spends here at the house! ;) she has been a part of the family for so long, it's a delight to have her around.
Next, did you know that so many movies are either already out or coming out soon for those of us of the 'geek' persuasion? between Iron Man 3 and Star Trek: Into Darkness, I am almost jumping up and down in my chair..... also want to see The Great Gatsby, but that appeals more the history buff in me..... a few days ago we went to see Oblivion. very good movie, but hubby was shocked that I called almost every moment of it. made me laugh! we watched Django Unchained last week. what a phenomenal movie. Quentin Tarantino is pure genius in my opinion. everyone in that movie deserved awards. we have the soundtrack and I listen to it almost every day.
anyhow, I am so happy to be a permanent guestie with Sandy and her DT over at Scribbles Designs! thank you, Sandy, for the invitation! The new challenge is to create projects for Mom or a special woman with flowers.
I decided to make a set of 3x3 notecards. I make most of my cards 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square, so quite often I have that 3" strip of cs left over. I've started immediately cutting a 3" x 3" notecard from the strip so that after a while I have several ready to be made for a set. they come together fairly quick - well it's all relative for me anyhow. ;) not the usual 3+ hours it takes me to make a card.
I used several of Sandy's fun birdhouses and papers from the Basic Grey Serendipity and Fact collections. chevrons were cut with a MFT die. flowers are Prima; buttons & ribbons are from my stash. I thought it would be fun to send these to my MIL since she likes to give little notes to her friends.
