Just For You!

Here's another CAS card that I made for my friend.  I did make one other, but I didn't like it as well.  I tried to throw in an adult male card and time just got away from me.  I wasn't very a happy with it.  THIS card however makes me tickled pink.  You know how much I love flowers and making my own.  I used some paper by Jillibean Soup ( I smile every time I say that) called, Pasta Fagioli.  My tissue paper flowers are made using the Large Scalloped Circle Nesties.  I spray them with some water and Perfect Pearls for a bit of shimmer.  The leaves are made of twill and I colored my white ric rac to match using my Copics.  I decided to stop hoarding my rub ons and use them up.  I really love rub on sentiments.

I ended up making one more of this card than I needed so I could give it to my son's teacher.  He took it into school and had all the kids sign it secretly.  It was such a "mission" for him.  He told me how he was glad he had his pants with the big, leg pockets on it so he could slide it in there without her seeing as they headed to ART.  I found out he can be sneaky.  Going to have to keep my eye on him as he gets older, I think.

One more cute story about him:

My kids love Grips.  You know, Grips are those prepackaged, smaller version of your favorites like: Oreos, Cheez Its, etc, that cost about twice as much as if you had bought the larger version.  I don't buy them very often unless they are on sale.  Which is what I did a few weeks ago.  Well, I got the variety pack and it had a new kind in it.  They were Cinnamon Graham Cracker bits.  Neither one of my kids liked them.  I hate to waste stuff so I decided to use them for dog treats.

 After walking the dog one day, I empty my pocket of these treats onto the table.  My son said, " Wow Mom, those treats of her's smell good.  I was kind of wishing that I could eat those treats."  

Are you kidding me?!  You would want to eat them as a DOG TREAT, but not when they come in the expensively, packaged version of KID treats?!?!  Seriously, I give up!

We ran out of dog treats this week and until I could get to the store I have been using up all my kid's snacks.  My dog LOVES Cheez Its I found out.  However, now I'm out of Kid snacks.  I went and bought dog treats yesterday.  Do you think my kids would enjoy Cheese and Liver flavored Charlee Bears?  Kidding!
