Happy For Theresa

Oh man, was last week crazy! Every year at our elementary school, we have a holiday gift shop for the kids, and I worked it all day, every day. What was I thinking? It always sounds like a good idea, but by Thursday, I start to doubt my judgment. Was I on medication when I agreed to this? If not, can I have some now? Oh well. By the weekend, I'm completely fine. And since I'm feeling better now, I'm not going to dwell on it. Especially since there are other things going on. Like, take the fact that Stampin' Up! shipped the complimentary catalogs out to their demos last Monday. And so far, people in Canada, Michigan, Kansas and Southern California (among other places) have gotten theirs. Ok, what kinda crap is that?! I'm in sunny Northern California and we have great weather (no ice storms!) and I don't have mine. So, since I didn't get mine by Friday, and coincidentally, Papertrey had a new release, I made myself feel better by ordering some new sets from them. So there. Of course, I'll probably get my new catalog before my new stamp sets, but that's ok. It's just comforting knowing that I have stuff coming to my house. It's a good feeling. Merry Christmas to me!

Ok, I just have to quickly talk about this card. My sister-in-law graduated from USF on Friday with her Masters(!), and no one in her family could go. Not even her husband. So, when I see him next week, he's getting a good talking to. She said she was ok with this once she got over feeling sorry for herself. Riiiiiigghht. I bet she can guilt a nice diamond out of him for this one. Anyway, since I was so busy last week, I didn't get around to making her card until this weekend. But I didn't want to make a stuffy congratulations card for her, cuz she's not really like that. And she's probably already got a million of them from all the people who couldn't go. So, I made her one that will hopefully make her smile. And can you believe, that with all the stamps I have (it's not that many, really. No, really.), that I don't have a simple congratulations stamp? I was really shocked. Apparently, I don't congratulate a lot of people in my life. How sad. So, I had to piece together a bunch of Papertrey stamps to say Happy For You. And I am happy for her. Congratulations, Theresa!

Stamps: Paper Tray (Papertrey), Ink: Mellow Moss, Blush Blossom sponged (SU!), Paper: Pretty in Pink, Blush Blossom, Certainly Celery (SU!), Brenda Walton DP, Accessories: Marvy punches, Certainly Celery ribbon, Making Memories brads, dimensionals

Pretty funny as I am reading your post I can hear you talking. You make me laugh. If you need good pills I could send them your way. I have the good stuff. ;)
