Happy Stump Day, Hampers! Hope your week is flyin' by!
Today's Easter card project was created using a cute l'il digital Bunny image ... and not much else.
You do 'get' that it's an Easter card ... what with the "holiday wishes" sentiment, yes? My DH caused me to way over think using this sentiment as it's traditionally a winter-holiday greeting. But I'm wild and crazy ... and stubborn ... so I've used it anyway:
The cute l'il digital image, from Bee Crafty, was lightly touched with color using Copic markers and Spica pens.
My card base is Kraft card stock and the white dotted background was created in an A2 embossing folder. The sentiment was stamped in "Basic Black" dye ink and both images were mounted on "Melon Mambo" card stock. So easy, even I could do it!
For all of the the fun-tastic product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.
Soooooooooo, Sheila's DH, Ken, is a Travel Team soccer coach here in West Palm ... and a good one. This season, he's having his best year ever: his team is undefeated and they've been invited to play in a ton of Invitational meets across the state.
So yesterday, while I was hangin' out at Sheila's, she took a phone call for Ken.
"Ken, phone! It's 'Sports Illustrated!'" Sheila called out.
Ken, figgering that his 15 Minutes had arrived, rushed down the stairs in his stocking feet to answer the phone. But because the stairs were slippery from a recent waxing, Ken fell halfway down.
"Omigosh," Sheila and I breathed, "are you okay?!?"
"Sure, sure, I'm fine. Where's the phone?"
"Well, still in the kitchen, Ken, I haven't had it moved." Sheila retorted.
"Good; outta my way please Deb. And you too Miss Smart-Mouth."
"Careful, the dishwasher is ........" Sheila started to say.
And crash! Sheila had left the dishwasher door open ... to air-dry the dishes ... and Ken fell over the open dishwasher, crashing to the floor.
"I'm alright, I'm okay." Ken panted, pulling himself up off the floor.
As he made his final approach to the phone, poor Ken took a huge flyin' leap off an area rug, launched himself into air, and landed flat on his butt.
Normally, after watching someone fall down the stairs AND crash over the open dishwasher door, Sheila and I would have been doubled over in hysterics. But it was KEN for goshsakes and that final flight in mid-air from the area rug launchpad wasn't exactly funny. Alright, a little funny ...
"Omigosh, Ken, are you okay?" Sheila cried, "Should I call an ambulance? Do you need a hot pad, or bandaging, or something?"
"No. I'm fine. Please just let me get to the phone in one piece to talk to the Sports Illustrated people." Ken pleaded.
As he reached for the phone, Ken mouthed, "This is gonna be huge! I'm puttin' it on speaker phone, okay ladies?"
Okay?!? Well, sure! Of course we wanted to hear his conversation with SPORTS ILLUSTRATED!!!
Ken puts the phone on speaker, and answers in his most professional, good sportsman like-voice, "Hello, this is Ken L. speaking."
And so we hear:
"Hello, Mr. L. This is Sports Illustrated calling to offer you a full YEAR of Sports Illustrated for the low, low price of just $1.00 per issue!"
And as he went to hang up, his sock got caught on a l'il nail head in the floor under the counter and he fell down ... again. But this time, on top of the cat ... who screamed like a banshee before clawing the be-jesus outta him. He's fine, really, a little sore and a lot embarrassed. But dang, where's a video camera when you need one?
Thanks so much for swingin' by ... hope your today is w-a-y less dangerous than Ken's yesterday was!
