Coffee to go! :)






Wow, what a week .....  as a mega Starbucks aficionado, I've been there more than I can count this week just to keep up with my own self!    I think my favorite blooper of the week was my car.  My absolutely wonderful husband always fills up the SUV each week :)   I can't remember the last time I pumped gas.   I had driven quite a few extra miles this week and he texted to ask if the car needed to be filled or if I was okay - naturally, I texted him back having only a second to do, quickly saying  "I have gas."

Except I sent the text to the wrong person.  I mean, it's easy to do -- He's in the T's - easy to click the names above or below it .......  except when it's a lady I barely know from church and in my Sunday contact list!   oops. 

Yeah.  It was embarrassing.  At least she was sweet about it and said "Oh.  I'm sorry to hear that!"

Cafe-mocha-vodka-valium latte anyone?!  I thought this stamp was hilarious when I saw it!  I just had to have it and finally inked it up.   And, true to fashion after a really bad week, how about that lovely dsp that I glued UPSIDE DOWN ...... priceless.   This is also my first attempt at using my new tattered angels - what fun stuff!  Except it's messy as all get up and I got "splotches" on my first 5 tries even though I shook and shook and shook that bottle - how do you all avoid those small splooches and drops?  I practiced (a lot!) and they came out fine - went to use it on my immie and splat!  Not to mention my craft room floor has a lovely over spray of Rum Punch *grin!*





Have a blessed weekend!

  4. Kelly, I laughed so hard at your post, my husband came updtairs to see if I was ok! That is absolutely priceless! I can't even imagine what that poor gal thought when she got that text. Your card is also priceless! Fabulous sentiment, I think we all need one of those latte's from time to time. :)

    I adore the bright mix of colors and patterns, too. I think the Tattered Angels sprays are pretty awesome, too...glad I'm not alone with the splotches. I'm curious what the secret is to make them go away. Hope you have a good day today...double check those texts! LOL!

  17. Let me say I am commenting after ROFL, that was hysterical, sorry it went to the wrong person, but can you imagine the woman's look on the other end of that text? Your card is gorgeous, love all the pink so perfect for Florida and the sentiment is perfect for someone on the go like you are. I use Tattered Angels and few tips, turn it upside down and roll it back and forth in your hands so you don't get the air bubbles and when spraying keep a paper towel near by to tap on on the part you sprayed. Have a great weekend.

  27. I am LMBO over your post! That stamp is hilarious and then texting someone at church that you have gas is PRICELESS!! I love the bright colors and dp of the card. You have got to stop with the decorating the inside of the card, too; you are making the rest of us look bad! :o)
