Fall-To Layout #171

At the office: I am so proud of myself.

I guess the awesomeness of the accomplishment depends on who you are, but for me, it's BIG.

What did I do?

I was actually SOCIAL tonight!

Ha ha. I know. That's kinda lame, but for my usual hermit self, going to an office happy hour was a nice change of pace and whaddiya know, I actually had fun and I had a beer! Us gaggle of girls gossiped for about 1.5 hours before I said good night, went to Potbelly, picked up a roast beef sandwich, and headed home. I also went to a 1-hour spin class this morning (and last night), so I'm feeling like I've done a good job of burning off all the cookies I ate yesterday at the cookie exchange. Along with all the cookies that were available, a partner sent us a huge box of popcorn (caramel, chocolate, peanut butter, etc.).

After the happy hour, I came home and noticed that RJ was not at the door and not on the couch. I went upstairs expecting to see him on my pillow, but instead, found him in my closet, sleeping on top of a sweatshirt. Lovely.

Bummer of the day: I got some mail saying that I got zapped by the speed camera. There goes $40 down the drain. Sigh.

Card: Dad asked me to make a card for Mom for their 30th wedding anniversary, which is Monday. Since Mom's got a green thumb and loves to garden, I thought that a flower would be a great focal point for the card. I folded an origami rose from paper that I got for Christmas last year, die cut some leaves and found the appropriate stamps and letter/number stickers for the sentiment.
Card Specs:
Ink: StazOn in Jet Black
Paper: Die Cuts with a View- Nana's Kitchen
Stamps: Fiskars- Romance (sentiment)
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities Foliage
Stickers: American Crafts Dear Lizzy Christmas Glitter Chipboard Thickers in Sparkling
Other: American Crafts Stamp Marker in Black

Lovely card that you created, I'm sure it will be one that your mother will keep and cherish.

Bummer about getting caught on the traffic control camera. :( Bet they caught a lot of people as everyone is in a hurry this time of year ... too much to do and not enough time to do it all in.

Gorgeous card for mom - bummer about the speed camera.

From one hermit to another congrats on the social night! Glad you had a good time! :)

Great card, love the rose. Only $40 for a speeding fine is good compared mine at $130 for less than 15 klms over the limit. maybe I should move to the states lol.
