On my last post, I talked about Halloween cards for the older "children" in my life. This is another example of finding a product that would work for my sons in their 20s! It uses a stamp set and die set from Trinity Stamps. This is my second card with the first card also made for Freshly Made Sketches. Funny story though - both of these cards involve drinking but my two sons think that I'm the drinker in the family. You don't know me - so it's probably not immediately funny - until you realize that a half glass of wine puts me to sleep!! I never actually get drunk because I'm asleep before then!! But one time we were at a local Mexican restaurant and I had a margarita - not even a giant schooner full - a small water glass size. I'd had it dozens of times, but I would swear they double-poured, because I got giggly and I had to seriously focus to walk a straight line. My teenage sons had never witnessed that before, so now I have a reputation that I may never live down. Of course, when my oldest turned 21, we took him for the same margarita - and he also got giggly. So not only do I have a bad reputation, but my son is horrified that I passed along the giggly/sleepy drunk gene!!
If you follow me regularly, you might be surprised by the sheer amount of typing on this post. I am still in my cast, but I found an ergonomic keyboard that allows my hand to be at an angle that works! I just keep figuring out ways to accommodate the wrist and the bankle - I'll be an expert but probably about the time they come off!
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
