I made this card when I was at Lue's cabin back in March. It was one of the very first times I used my Copics! Still haven't been accomplishing much here this week in terms of stamping, so that's why you get an "old" card again today. I made a few cards yesterday but haven't had time to take photos yet!
Anyways, last night I started a scrapbooking gift for my sister-in-law. This past winter, I "stole" many of my MIL's (who died in September) handwritte recipes when we were "cleaning out" her kitchen. Before you gasp too hard and choke yourself (at the thought of me stealing something), please know I "stole" them for a good reason. I wanted to make cookbook scrapbooks for both my SIL and my husband as gifts. I wanted them to have a special place for their mom's recipes (she was a fabulous cook). I wanted to scrap the original recipes, not re-type them, because I feel the handwritten nature of the recipes is what reveals her true personality and humanness. So, that's what I worked on last night instead of cards. I hope I will finish it today and can take pictures of it to show you!
Today is another hang-out-at-home day. I have some freelance work to do as well as I want to stamp a little bit too. No big plans on the agenda for the weekend either! Yippee! I love that. The bad news is it's supposed to be COLD and might even snow. Good lord. No snow, please. It is gloomy and overcast today, but slightly warm (47). Me thinks it's another good day to stay locked up in my stamp room!!!!
