A LITTLE HOKEY POKEY

Happy Monday all!!  WHEW! Another weekend that just FLEW by!!! I had a fun one though. Saturday I had a workshop and it went really well.  I had never met any of them before, but they loved to stamp and several told me that they had been looking for a new hobby - I think I can find them one *wink*  Sunday, me and my daughter went shopping for the ever popular skinny jeans and I am happy to report that we not only found one pair but we found THREE pair that she liked - and believe me, with Miss Picky, this is no small feat, LOL!!!  She is such a moody little 13-year old that it was nice to see her smiling and laughing and she gave me a feel good feeling on the way home when she told me that she had "a totally great day mom".  Score one for the mom!!!  After that, I considered the weekend a great success!!!  Now, on to the card and the reason you came by, LOL!!! This is one of the cards we did in my workshop and I have to say, it was my favorite, I just love that little owl and the sentiment cracks me up everytime!!  It was a hit at the workshop too, which was great!  I kept the card simple, but still added some fun elements such as the Scalloped Trim Border Punch and the yummy Dusty Durango Polka Dot Ribbon.  The stamp sets are Fox & Friends which can be found in the Occasions Mini, and Smarty Pants, which is available in the main catty. Both of the links for each catalog can be found on my sidebar or just click up top to go to my online site and order!  So, now I am off to work on my class for tomorrow and do some laundry.  Off to stamp - I just love my job!!! Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!! MWAH!

Wow Alex....your blog became all springy! It's wonderful. I love your card too - I need to remember to use a border punch on DP instead of always using plain coloured paper.
