Heaven, Birthdays and Bad Movies

Good morning, all! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! We are. I've been busy, but enjoying it. We were at a lovely retirement party yesterday for some of dh's co-workers. It was held at one of their houses, out in the country in the yard of an old farmhouse with a wrap-around porch, grass for miles in all directions, and a little pond. I fell in love, and decided to move in with them. Just kidding! But, if I ever win the lottery or become a best-selling children's author, I'm going to take my realtor to their house and say, "find me something exactly like this!" I wish I'd taken a picture so you could see my idea of Heaven on Earth! Well, since I truly want to live on Lake Michigan, I guess I can't have an old farmhouse with a pond and grass for miles to see TOO, but maybe it will be my second house! :-)

I even got a chance to stamp last night, although I'm not going to show you, because what I made is for my SCS secret sister, and on the tiny chance that she stumbles across my blog, I don't want her to recognize it.

Today is a stamping friend's birthday... Patter (identicaltriplets on SCS)... and yesterday was another stamping friend's birthday... Jane (whoopsie daisy on SCS)... go to their blogs and give them some birthday love (while checking out their beautiful stamping, of course!) Happy birthday ladies!! (Sorry, Jane, your card is STILL sitting on my front seat. I couldn't figure out how much postage to put on it, and then the week totally got away from me before I could get to the post office. I will still mail it, though! :-)

Since you can't see what I stamped last night, how about this? It is one of the cards I stamped for my Unity Design Team submission. I LOVE it. It was stamped with the dandelion from Wish, and just the word blessed from "blessed with your love" from Little Labels 1. I found this amazing patterned paper with embossed circle designs, and then continued the circle motif with my spiral clip, the hang-tag and the bling. It is a 6x6 card, and if I can bear to part with it, it will go to someone very special who I know will treasure it!

What do you have planned for today? We are going to begin a deep clean of the house because we are going to have guests on Wednesday night who have never been here (so they don't already know my clutter-bug habits.) We are resurrecting an old event we used to hold when we lived in Michigan-- BAD MOVIE NIGHT. Anyone have any "good" suggestions? :-)
