Late Grad Wishes

July 6th, 2011

Happy Wednesday!  Did you have a good 4th of July weekend?  We sure did!  This is the first chance I’ve had to post even though I did get some good stampng time in.  The card I have today is for a high school graduation for a guy, so I kept it simple in his school colors.

I used TE Dream Big to create a tent topper card.   Patterned paper is from the MME 6×6 Stella and Rose – Hattie pad.  I’ve found that paper collection great for masculine cards as well as other things.  I actually bought it because it was somewhat out of my norm.  I wasn’t sure how much I would use it, but it’s been great to have!  The little stars are from the TE Star Border Die.  I was originally going to use a star border, but it didn’t quite work.  The little stars were the perfect little touch though.  Each one has a tiny red rhinestone on it too.  I used the silver end of a Zig Painty Pen to line the edges of the card and the edges of the red cardstock strip under the numbers.  It gives a really nice finished look.  Now I just need to get this in the mail – it’s already quite late.

Since the Rocket Scientist works a 9/80 and has every other Friday off work, we were very fortunate to have a 4 day weekend.  We started it off by going out to dinner and to see Super 8 Thursday night.  I didn’t know much about the movie before seeing it ( I like it that way) and I really really loved it!  Two thumbs way up!

Friday we did something different and fun.  We drove a half hour to have lunch at a food truck!  It wasn’t just any truck though, it was Nom Nom – the truck that came in 2nd place (should have won) the Food Network Truck Wars last year.  We’ve wanted to track them down ever since the show and we finally did.  OH.MY.HEAVENS. Best sandwich EVER.  The Banh Mi was like nothing I had ever tasted before.  YUM!   We’ll be tracking them down again for sure.    Then Friday afternoon and evening I went through the very painful process of cleaning up my stamp room so I could have a friend over to stamp on Saturday.  UGH!  I got a lot accomplished and it looks and feels so much better in there…for now…you know how that goes!

I got to stamp with my friend Lisa all afternoon Saturday and then Curt and I went to an art show Saturday night.  My brother-in-law had some pieces on display which was really cool.  And we discovered an artist that we were unaware of (but many of our friends already knew about), Shag.  We loved that show so much we almost bought a piece…we just couldn’t figure out anywhere to put it.  Oh and just by coincidence that night we happened on yet another food truck from the Food Network contest – Crepes Bonaparte – so we had a little dessert there.

Sunday was a wonderful day at church and visiting with some friends.  We decided to stay home for 4th of July this year and my wonderful hubby went to the store and got everything to make us a yummy steak dinner.  That was topped off by a trip to Baskin Robbins.  OH MY!  GREAT weekend and time to get back on that Weight Watchers bandwagon for sure!

I have more projects to share – just need to find the time to sit down and blog them!  I’ll try to get back tomorrow.  I hope you’re having a good week!  Thanks for stopping by!
