Well, now that I've got your attention...I hope you won't be too disappointed to discover that the 'pillow talk' I'm referring to is most definitely NOT what you're thinking. lol
Last night as my hubby and I were getting into bed, we both noticed a little 'love note' on each of our pillows, which were evidently left there earlier in the evening by our 7-YO daughter (she's known for surprising us like that with all sorts of pictures, cards, and other gifts). It seems that she and her 9-YO brother had been conspiring to trade places with us in an attempt to free themselves of their 'chores' and school work and to gain other apparent privileges they're not yet old enough to earn. What really cracked me up was the 'musosh' (I'm told that meant 'massage' -- I never get those, so how on earth would they come up with that??). Kids -- gotta love 'em! ;) Anyway, the two lists were nearly identical (only the days were reversed), and they were just so cute that I simply HAD to share them with you! I hope you can read it -- we thought it was just hysterical. Here's mine:
P.S. While these were so creative and had us literally laughing out loud, the kids' list of demands were not met. And they're okay with that. lol
Now for a card share. Ironically, the star images came from two different stamp sets: Star Struck by CTMH (large star), and Starstruck by SU! (smaller stars). I just thought it was rather funny. ;D
Anyway...I made this for my oldest son's birthday coming up this week. It's so hard to believe he's going to be 22! Seems like it was just yesterday he was being cradled in my arms, my first child, weighing in at only 5 lbs 9 oz. Of course a LOT has changed since that day -- he's now muscle-bound, towers over me, and is about to graduate from college. So...wanting to keep this card very masculine and somewhat youthful (he's not that old -lol!), I went for the distressed look and had to resist my urge to glam it up a bit by adding some sort of sparkle to the stars with Stickles, clear embossing powder, rhinestones, or something (and it was very difficult for me, I must say).
I used Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge as my jumping-off point (thanks, Beate!), which I'm finding really speeds up my 'production' time. Having a sketch design to work from really frees me up to concentrate on the products and other creative aspects of the card. If you make a card using this sketch, please post a comment here and include a link to your card -- I'd love to see what you come up with!
I hope you enjoy your weekend and find some time to stamp!
Thanks so much for the visit, and I hope to see you again soon! Until then, many blessings!
