Misty Monday!

It is so damp here this morning; we woke up to fog and drizzle - I feel like I'm back home in Scotland! LOL! And in the spirit of wet weather, here's a "shower" card :) This one is made with stamps from My Favorite Things (the set is called "Shower Time"); patterned paper is by Fancy Pants. I pierced holes around the scalloped punched shape and stitched around the edge, threading beads on as I went. A bit time consuming (I decided after I'd done 3 beads!), but the effect is worth it for a special occasion card :)


Iain was up early to get to the airport to fly to Bogota, Colombia for 3 days. The kids and I got a few more hours of sleep before we had to get up, and then of course we had the required "discussion" about whether it was cold enough for them to have to wear jackets or not! Hello - it was 40 degrees at the time....

Tasha and I had our long walk, both dried off, and now it's time to put the kettle on and have my first cup of tea - the best one of the day! I may even sit and watch "The View" and decide what I think of Whoopi on the show. I've read mixed reviews so it should be interesting.

"Curb Your Enthusiasm" season 6 started on HBO last night; it's one of our favorite shows! Iain and Larry David have a lot in common... I also TiVo'd the new HBO show "Tell Me You Love Me" which got some good reviews, so we'll give that a try.

Wow! 40 degrees???? Yeah I think you need a jacket. It was hot and humid here. ugh.
I just love your wonderful "shower" card. The beads are so awesome. I could see it being very time consuming.
And I can't believe that I forgot that new HBO show was on last night. I really wanted to see it. Oh well.. I'll have to try to catch it during the week.

Fun card!!! I got to play at a friends house and play with that set for the first time today! Just gotta put a finishing touch on it!

So pretty! The beads look great! Three in sounds like not the best time to discover how time consuming though! :-0

What a cute card! We had terrible weather in the last few days, no sun just cloudy all day long. It lasted for a few days, but today we got a bit of sunshine.

Lucky you got to at least enjoy a cup of tea!! I had to go out in this dripping weather!! My daughter went off with a mini-skirt and fleece jacket and it was 50 down here!! Love the card - how appropriate! Bring it with on Wednesday so I can see it for real!! TFS
