Straight to the Point …

Solo 2_Dec 2009

Here’s a wedding card – a prototype, I’ve decided, for the card I’m going to make for our nephew and his bride-to-be, who are getting married this weekend. This one will have to go to someone else.

About the title of my post, it’s based on the message. “Two” stamped on the outside, and “Forever” stamped with the same Cocoa ink on the inside with the two intertwined hearts from the Solo “2” set stamped with Tulip underneath it. Kinda blunt, huh? Sounds like an expectation. Well … LOL.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Cocoa and Tulip cardstock; That’s Amore paper packet; Cocoa and Tulip ink pads; Honey marker; Solo “2” and Solo “F” stamp sets; Cuttlebug w/Heart Blocks embossing folder and Nestabilities Labels Eight set; 3M foam mounting tape.

Card-making wasn’t quite so painful tonight. LOL. It was a good day, too, until I left work, and my card wouldn’t start. It’s seems it was a little low on gas. Am I supposed to keep track of everything? Besides, doesn’t “E” stand for “Enough?” What’s not funny is that Marv thinks the fuel pump may have gone out. I still maintain it was not that empty. Maybe it will start tomorrow. If not … Crap.

How was your day? A good one, I hope. Thanks for the sweet comments you’ve left on my recent posts. Your encouragement is so appreciated! Later…

great card. Sorry to hear about your car trouble. My princess is without a car this week, fortunately I am off this week and can play taxi. She works 3-11 though. I'm beat and am about to roll into bed.
Hope it is nothing serious with the car.

RUT ROH on the car!!! I am so weird about gas in my car I never let it go below a quarter tank....If the gas light actually comes on I about have a heart attack :0) Hope your car is OK Kathi....sending good car thoughts your way.
LOVE you little birds!!!! So darling. And getting married is FOREVER right!
I love your simple stamped sentiment...it is perfect.

This is so cute! I love the love birds, lol.

Jeanne said...

What a great card! And the sentiment is fabulous!

I'm so sorry to hear about your car troubles. Like Sarah, I get nervous when the tank is below 1/4. (My dad's teachings really took hold I guess-lol) Hopefully it was just hiccup-ing because of low fuel and cold temps. And maybe you ought to consider 1/4 tank as "empty!" *Ü*

This is so stinkin' cute Kathi. Love it and those little birds. I'm so sorry to hear about your car. I hope that it was just out of gas.

Cute card! I was thinking that you were having trouble starting the card - until I read a bit further about the "E" being "enough" LOL! Then I finally got it!

Kathi,

I laughed out loud at your straight forward FOREVER advice! You just crack me up! Don't worry - it's their hope as well.

Sorry about the car - I hope it's not the gas pump! Sounds like it might be though if you didn't think it was really empty.

Hugs.
