The good and the bad

How was everyones 3-day weekend?? I had a fantastic Friday & Saturday. Friday night was a BLAST!! 14 ladies scattered in my living room, family room and dining room. We had a taco bar and everyone brought one ingredient. YUM! Then we had ice cream sundaes for our treats with brownies & cookies on top. DOUBLE YUM!! We stamped, laughed and socialized until 2am!!!! Then I was up early to let the cable guy in, that took all day. I had some gal pals over for lunch and stamping and next thing I knew I had cable!! Sadly, the internet wouldn't connect so I still don't have internet at home. Hopefully they'll get the problem fixed sometime this week....I was ready to throw the computer out the window. LOL

Monday I spent the day baking cookies for my neighbors. I hadn't gone over to say hello yet and we've lived there for nearly 2 months already. So I whipped up a few dozen Chocolate Chip & also my favorite Coconut Oatmeal cookies and went to say hello.

The card is quite cute but didn't photograph well. I used textured white cardstock for the card base and then added a little paper piercing on the Saffron and used my Scor-pal for some dry embossing around the edges of the stamped image layer...

Ok now the fun stuff.....Paper Pretties is having a huge sale!! I mean GINORMOUS!!!! Everything in the Boutique is 45% off!!! And some items were already on sale so they are now almost 80% off!! HOLY COW that's practically FREE!!!! So get your tails over there quickly, it's only while supplies last and at this sale price, my guess is they won't last long!!! Enter coupon code "Labor Day" when you checkout to get the discount.....what are you still doing here?!?! ;)
