And in Today's Mail ...

... came this beautiful card! Isn't it just the cutest thing? I received it from my upline, Mary Jo. I'm so happy to have it to show you, because I didn't make it to my corner today. Wait. I take that back. I did get it cleaned up this afternoon between getting home from work early and going to the fair this evening.

While I didn't make the card, I think I can list the materials Mary Jo used to make the card. Having it made me all the more anxious for the UPS man to come on Monday. After seeing card after card made with the beautiful Moon Doggie paper and Extreme Happiness stamp set, I gave in and ordered them. LOL.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White cardstock; Moon Doggie paper packet; Cocoa ink; Extreme Happiness stamp set; White Daisy mini brads; Pewter spiral clip.

Oh my goodness, my feet are sore. We packed an awful lot of activity into a few hours at the Pennington County Fair. We ate junky food, checked out all the animals, and then hit the midway where the boys went on some rides. It was a good time. The boys are going back to the fair with their mom tomorrow, and if I can get my weary backside out of bed early enough, I'm going to go back in the morning to watch Miranda show her horses. She had Willy out in the ring tonight when we got there, and while I'm not a horse person by any means, it's obvious he is a magnificent animal. After having lunch with my mother-in-law and sisters-in-law, I'm going to come home and dive into some wedding projects and hopefully, come up with a little something for Simple Saturday.

I hope yours was a great Friday and your weekend is wonderful, too! Thanks for stopping by, friends. Later ...

Hi Kathi, that card looks easy and fun. I am struggling with a birthday card and this appeals to me. Not sure if it will work because it is for a Catholic priest, but still I want to make one. I love the moon doggie paper pack and the hibiscus of Extreme Happiness, but I think you probably knew that. Hope you have a great weekend and get lots of wedding type stuff accomplished. I am so glad my oldest's wedding was so fun and simple. I keep telling my princess not to get married and if she feels she must to elope. grins.

Great card and I'm sure you were thrilled to get it in the mail. How fun that you have some new goodies on their way to you.

What wonderful fair memories you are creating. Good luck with all your plans this weekend. I look forward to hearing about them and seeing what you come up with for Simple Saturday.

What a cute card! I like how you texted the credit right on the card. Great idea. Glad you had fun at the fair. We haven't done that in a while.
