Just a Quickie.....

Get your minds out of the gutter! : ) Yesterday I showed you my 4 hour shaker card, today it is a quick 10 minute card! Yep, you heard me right ladies and gents....10 whopping minutes! I needed a quick card for my niece. She just had tubes put in her ears and the adenoid's taken out. So, I didn't want to putz too much. I pulled out my Scor-Pal and created the diamond background. I also embossed a square in the center so I had a place to stamp. I used my SU! marker to color only the leaves. And of course, HAD to use rhinestones for the cherries! I added a little red ribbon and voila! 10 minutes later I had this! I think I broke records! LOL!

My 15th wedding anniversary is coming up next week, so I will post some cheesy wedding pics of me with my big curly 90's hair! So Saturday, Brian is taking me somewhere, but isn't telling me. My guesses? I think maybe he is taking me to see Jersey Boys. We'll have to see if I am right.

And lastly, I had to share this LO with you created by my good friend Simone. I clicked on her blog this morning and there was my face on her scrapbook page! I was so touched that she created a LO about me. I just met her last year at CHA, and immediately it felt like we knew each other forever! You know how you can just talk easily with some people? That's Simone! And I always love a person who can make me laugh. That girl just cracks me up!

Have a great weekend everyone! And remember, keep your eyes peeled on the 29th for some old wedding pics!

I immediately knew who you were when you left a comment on my blog from all of Simone's posts. I loved the layout she had posted recently of the two of you.

This card is so simple and elegant at the same time. I love the embossed background and the bling on the cherries is wonderful!

I hope your niece feels better soon. They have started to talk about taking out my 2 1/2 year olds adenoids and I don't like the sound of that at all.

Don't knock the big 90's curly hair - mine is stuck there every day - naturally- UGH! *LOL*

BTW - I'm down in Bourbonnais
