A FRIENDS IS SOMEONE WHO KNOWS YOU


Photobucket


Whew, what a day, sorry for the late post. First off it has been thunderstorming like crazy all day!! Then I pricked my finger with some wire and made it bleed. Then I decided my scissors needed a good clean and cut my thumb and it bled!! So not the best of days!!

Anyway, gorgeous vintage look card with a girl and her lovable cat playing together at the piano. I made the images 3 times and scaled each one down and placed them with pop dots to give them dimension. I used diamond accents to glaze the images (sorry it doesn't show up too well in the pic!!) Added some lace corners, ribbon, fabric brads and flowers.

Have a super weekend and see you on Monday. (hopefully I'll make it through the weekend damage free!!)

CONGRATS GRADUATE - PROFESSOR HOOTY


Photobucket


Photobucket


Photobucket


Great card for graduation time. I used my digital stamp "Professor Hooty" available at Digital Downloads by Louby Loo, colored him in COPICs and then used glaze on his hat and book to give a glossy effect. I heat embossed the stamped sentiment and handmade the scroll for the bottom. I found some really neat paper to put inside which is kind of like journal paper and also printed paper which has words about compositions on it. I also made a little pocket inside, which has woven white ribbon at the top, to hold a gift card.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

It was such a beautiful day here today that I spent most of it outside, so sorry no cards to post today, however I promise I will have something tomorrow!!
I received this message today and thought I would share it with you all, it made me shed a few tears and made me reflect a little bit!!

Something we all should think about!!!!!!!!! Can I Borrow $25?

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door.
SON: 'Daddy, may I ask you a question?'
DAD: 'Yeah sure, what it is?' replied the man. SON: 'Daddy, how much do you make an hour?'
DAD: 'That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?' the man said angrily. SON: 'I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?'
DAD: 'If you must know, I make $50 an hour.'
SON: 'Oh,' the little boy replied, with his head down.
SON: 'Daddy, may I please borrow $25?' The father was furious, 'If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I don't work hard everyday for such childish frivolity's.'
The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy's questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money? After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think: Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $25.00 and he really didn't ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy's room and opened the door. 'Are you asleep, son?' He asked. 'No daddy, I'm awake,' replied the boy. 'I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier' said the man. 'It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the $25 you asked for.' The little boy sat straight up, smiling. 'Oh, thank you daddy!' he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills. The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.
'Why do you want more money if you already have some?' the father grumbled. 'Because I didn't have enough, but now I do,' the little boy replied. 'Daddy, I have $50 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.' The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness.

It's just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember to share that $50 worth of your time with someone you love. If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of hours... But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.

Have a great evening and see you tomorrow
