I actually had a moment this week when I wondered how I had missed Christmas. And here it is, the middle of March! Had I slept through it? Almost, what with one illness after another and plenty of work to do. Both conditions have had my head spinning for months.
Thursdays are usually my “day off.” It’s my day to press the reset button on the house. Since my husband spends the day volunteering at our county historical records center, being home alone is a particular treat, even though I am usually running plenty of errands. In just two hours, I had visited three banks. filled the tank with a small fortune in gas, and shopped three stores. At home, I dealt with (and then happily deleted) about two dozen emails that needed my attention, cleaned my desk almost completely, prepared for a meeting Saturday morning, made a great lunch and a fabulous supper, did some closet purging for garbage day and some fridge cleanout for the compost bin, and on and on.
And because I have a bridal shower Saturday afternoon for the soon-to-be-DIL of my cousin, I pulled this from my never-ever-send-to-anyone stash. And did it without any regrets. I hope she likes it, too! It’s from Super Saturday of two years ago, one of two cards that day that required the threading of Baker’s Twine through small holes. The result was much muttering and gnashing of teeth. In fact, stampers reminded me of the frustration just this week, when I generously provided needle threaders to accomplish a similar task!
The colors are not as intense as the photo suggests (the Wisteria Wonder looks horrid here!), but I had to show the Whisper White craft ink that was applied with the Houndstooth embossing folder. Even though there are some retired products on this card, it would be easy to re-create with current Stampin’ Up! supplies.
