I can't believe that it is Friday already. What the heck happened to the rest of the week? It seems like just yesterday that we celebrated my sister's anniversary. And it's already a week later? Oh, please, somebody slow time down for me. It is going much, much, much too fast!
And next Wednesday will be our anniversary. Forty-two years. Of wedded bliss. And never a cross word between us. (Do you honestly believe that? HAHAHAHAHA!) You know, though, Gary's mom once told me that she and his dad never had an argument. Come to think of it, I don't think I actually ever heard them argue. Weird. And not normal. Well, at least in our marriage it wouldn't be normal. ;^)
So I guess I'd best get back on the stick (or my broom) and make a card for my best friend. No gifts need to be exchanged. He gave me a beautiful gold plumeria ring in Maui. And my gift to him? A Polynesian fish hook tattoo. Unbelievable, I know. Everyone at work keeps asking him when he is going to buy his motorcycle. (Over my dead body. And I mean that.) But the tattoo is cool, and he loves it, so....
And Mother's Day is coming up. That means I should make a card for my DD. Hopefully, I can get both cards done in the next week. Someone needs to help me stay on point. I get distracted too easily right now. I keep thinking about our time in Maui two weeks ago. And the vacation we plan to take in Cancun next year--to stay in the timeshare we bought two weeks ago. Oh, yes, yes, we did! I can't believe that one, either. But I am glad we did it--it will force us to take vacations every year now. And Gary needs that after working so hard all his life, and relaxing so little.
Tonight he and I are going to a graduation celebration at the Deli. One of our favorite servers, ever, Miss Sarah, is graduating from ASU, and she asked us to come help her celebrate. She has worked at the Deli for about 3 years, I think, and is now moving to Texas. She is one of the sweetest people on the planet, and we will miss her so darned much!
I used Magnolia Graduation Tilda for Sarah's card. The papers I chose were from Basic Grey's Little Black Dress collection and from DCWV La Creme matstack, which I combined with Stampin' Up CS. I added Prima flowers and a Stampin' Up rhinestone brad. The dies I used were: MFT Leafy Flourish, Memory Box Floral Circle, and Marianne Designs Forest Branch. I accented the image with a Signo Uniball white gel pen. Tilda was colored with Copics: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13, E50, E53, E57, Y28, C0, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6, C7, C9.
I am going to enter this card into one challenge:
Outlawz Paper ala Mode
Hoping everyone everywhere has a wonderful weekend!
