Happy Thursday, peeps! It's winding down to the big day and I probably won't be posting too many things until after the holiday, but I did want to squeeze in a card I made for an upcoming family birthday. I used the theme from SUO Challenges, which is to use circles, ovals or squares on my card, and since the FMS sketch was square, I thought it would work well:
Amy O'Neill used some pretty Project Life cards on her card (you can see it here), and I thought that would be a great idea for mine as well, since I just got this Hello Lovely set, and I just love these colors:
Both panels are from the PL set; the numbers were cut with the Large Numbers die in Crisp Cantaloupe, and the sentiment is from Cheer All Year, stamped in Tip Top Taupe. I embossed the Soft Sky base with the Perfect Polkadots embossing folder, then added a few sequins from the November Paper Pumpkin kit.
Thanks for visiting today!
We were all sitting around the table after dinner a couple nights ago and Cassidy got a little piece of paper and a Sharpie (her favorite writing utensil) and wrote a little note and stuck it in her Advent box. Dana questioned her about it and she told her she was writing the elves a note:
"Dear elfs, I'm getting tired of getting stickers. But I like you still!" Dana and I just cracked up! She gets stickers, an occasional piece of candy and sometimes a little toy. But apparently she is not too happy with the stickers!!! Ralph the elf wrote her a note back and apologized:
and the next day, she got a big ornament full of bubble bath:
Really, I don't think she's ungrateful; the look is because she had no CLUE what it was!!! Now she can't wait to have her bath so she can bubble up! But we did remind her that the Advent gifts are small; she'll get bigger gifts on Christmas! But we might have created a monster! Maybe next year we'll just do one of those little calendars with the tiny little windows that open up!
Have a blessed day!
