I must apologize

I really need to apologize to everyone A T & T's DSL modem decided to quit on me this weekend and I was having a horrible time trying to get online.

My first card is a cheater card, I ordered stuff from Ellen Hutson's and she always sends this darling 'Thank you 'card with her stuff. So I cut the image out and mounted it like a picture window. I embellished it with some cute little flowers and that was it so "No Thank You Ellen".

My second card is Cocoa and his cup, I'm lovin this little mouse and little story about the Thanks punch...I was shopping at Michael's the other day. I go shopping for my exercise not my wallet, my hip is healing well and I must walk for at least a half hour twice a day so I do the Michael's store as my for me!!! Anyway I saw this punch from Martha Stewart on the 75% clearance rack, I grabbed it up and when it came time to check out the girl said 'this isn't clearance price' I said there are about 4 more on the clearance rack you need to check it out so she did and realized their mistake. She brought the other 4 to the register obviously to get them off the clearance rack but she exclaimed that since it was on the rack she would sell it to me for the 75% off. Its a border punch that folds up, Woo Hoo I got a steel!Last card is a simple but easy card made with white SU card stock stamped with Snowflakes in silver metallic. I used Whipper Snapper's stamp mounted it on some old Christmas scraps and silver metallic paper. The cross was colored with Copic's B0000, B12, B14, BV04, B05 and Y38. I love this card its so simple but pretty.

I hope everyone is recovering from the long weekend, my daughter had to work on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. I did Black Friday the first year I lived here. I got up at 3 and drove to Chattanooga I arrived at Best Buy at 4:15 AM and the line was over a block long. My first thought was "Are these people nuts? What are they thinking its cold out here and the store doesn't even open for another hour and a half." I ended up sitting in my car people watching knowing that the laptop computer I was there for was not going to be mine anytime soon. Needless to say there is nothing I need at oh dark thirty to get me out of a warm bed anymore!

Well I have chatted my head off and I need to catch up on emails so ladies and gents (if there are any) remember be safe out there.

God Bless

What wonderful cards! I love how you recycled the card from Ellen Hutson into your cute window card! (LOVE your sense of humor too... you made me chuckle through your whole post!)

As always, my dear, your cards are fabulous!! (And you did NOT cheat --- you just used your creative resources!) I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate all the lovely comments you leave on my blog ... I have wanted to respond back but can't find what I did with your e-mail (my old computer crashed so I don't have it any more!). I've missed you and all the girls ... email me any time and maybe we can "chat" ... :)

That is a very clever trick with recycling the image in the top card - I like to recycle cards, too, but it never occurred to me to try windowpanes like that. Very cool.
