Spent all day yesterday playing with grandkids in Madison. Let me tell you, they are some of the most fun anyone could have. Took them out to lunch to the Hubbard Avenue Diner. They all ate a good lunch and then we had pie...or in 3 year old Drew's case, "a cookie. With frosting. Please". Grant had his own piece of oreo, and Lily and I split a slice of Mississippi Mud pie. Think creamy thick brownie in a graham cracker crust. She ate most of it...thank goodness! It was soooo rich and yummy. Then I took them to Marshall's to look for books for them. Well, the two oldest wanted stuffed animals ("grandma, they're Not toys, they're stuffed animals!") but Drew spotted a book that he had to have. The Adventures of Captain Underpants. Later his dad said it was probably the word underpants that captivated him. Who am I to say no to a child who actually chooses a book over a toy...or a stuffed animal?!
And today. Poor me...had to take Jen out for her birthday lunch, and wouldn't you just know, a run to Archivers. Spent waaaaaaaayyyy too much on supplies, but most were for the Disney book I'm making for those three little ones in Madison as part of their Christmas present. The best part of the day is to spend time with a friend. Just talking. Just being. Just perfect. *Sigh*
I haven't had much time to visit blogs, make cards or do any crafty fun stuff. I started with an idea for a card on Friday after I saw the new cue card at CASology, but didn't have time to do much with it. Tried to craft a bit on Monday after the dentist, but was feeling that leftover tiredness from Sunday's party. Today, I just whipped it up. It's for Marilyn. And I'd like to thank you all out there for the thoughts and prayers as she continues to battle with her cancer. The card has to be flat enough to mail, so there are few embellies on it. Besides, the whole concept over at CASology is Clean and Simple...
For this card, I've used all scraps out of my two giant scrap boxes. (I swear they multiply at night!!) Except the white Bazzill card base. A bit of baker's twine, Memento London Fog ink, Lawn Fawn sentiment, and a random daisy. And since this has been a bit of a long winded post, I'll stop now. Happy Dances.
