Sweet Threads Your Specail

Hello!  Happy Wednesday!  Hope your having a great week!  We are still very much enjoying summer over here!  Today I have a card that I made for the former owner of my LSS.  She sold her business (to a really nice girl I may add) and is retiring.  They are having an open house this upcoming Saturday and I will be having Carter's birthday than so I won't be able to go.  I did want to give her a card though and I am proud that I made one, and actually got it there before!  And I also enjoyed shopping!

Keeping with my personal challenge of using stamps and papers that I have yet or hardly used today my card is using Sweet Threads stamps by Hero Arts and the matching 6 by 6 pad by Basic Grey.  This is my second time using them.

I thought that the your special sentiment was a nice one to use. I embossed with brown zing powder both the flower and the leaves.  I used my favorite papers from the stack for this card! 

Yesterday I went out with two friends to see:

Yes I am a gleek and I love glee!  How can I not?  I love to sing and performed when I was young.  The concert movie was amazing!  It really was like being at a concert but with better seats!  I've actually seen A LOT of movies lately on our anniversary night out Chad and I ended up seeing two movies after dinner!  The kids were gone for the night so we really took advantage!  We saw:

Which we really enjoyed.  A really good love messy story.  And good acting!  We also saw a comedy:

So funny!  Very much my hubby's kind of movie!  I enjoyed the actors in it too and the story and of course all the comedy!  It was nice to see two very different from each other movies in one night.

Well I am off!  It's time to put my kiddies to bed, why is it that they always play the best right when it's time to put them to bed?

Anita, you are doing some very lovely things with your "infrequently used" are inspiring me to try to do the same! I'm sure the LSS owner loved her card! It is so pretty!

Glad you and your hubbie had some time to watch some movies...I'll have to add them to our "to rent" list, they sound funny!
