Playing Catch Up!
Hello! Sorry I have been missing in action. I started flaring up over the weekend and decided to come home on Sunday night. I got in about 10:30pm. I have been resting, unpacking, and trying to get things caught up around here, which still hasn't happened! The cats are thrilled that I am home and they keep following me around. Especially Molly, she wants all the lov'in that she can get!
On Tuesday, I had lunch with Jeannette, Fran, and my mom. We ate outside during the rain in Jeannette's screen porch. This is the second time we ate out there this summer and I really like it. Maybe some day, I will have a screen porch. That would be fun. You all can come visit me and we will sit, drink, yack, and eat chocolate all day long...lol I made a quick stop to Practical Cents after we finished lunch. I did not want them to think I had died..hee hee. Sarah told me on the phone last night that my friends and family didn't think I was going to come back. That I was just going to stay there. The thought did cross my mind. At Practical Cents, I found a few fabric napkins. I have decided to switch to them. I plan on making a bunch of them but until I get that done, I have a few to get me started.
Wednesday, I worked a lot on the library scrapbook. That is going to be my focus this month. I want to get as much as I can done before the meeting at the end of the month.
But, I have been itching to make a card since I have been home. I missed Zach's birthday while I was gone so I just finished wrapping his present and made him this birthday card with the new level 2 hostess set Long Fellows. I just love it. It is so stink'in cute! And the saying on this stamp was so appropriate as the card is late, and they have a pet turtle that Sarah has had for years. His name is Mr. Mean Green. I think Sarah has had him for about 8 years now. Cute little thing. I also used the stamp set Itty Bitty Bits to make the faux buttons for this card. I stamped the image, punched it out with the matching punch, then punched out 5 more circles out of card stock and glued them all together for each button. It really adds some dimension to the card. A fun masculine card. I hope you like it! Elaine
