May the *Horse* Be With You!!

Just thought I'd share a "funny" with you, at the expense of my 8 year old!! They had an OMSI assembly recently at my daughter's school in which they showed a bunch of science related things. Evidentally they had those Light Sabers like you'd see in Star Wars and her principal jokingly held one up and said, "Let the Force be with you!" Well, my daughter has never seen Star Wars before, and she thought it looked like a sword that a knight riding on a horse would hold. So she came home and laughingly told us all about the funny principal who raised his *sword* and said, "Let the HORSE be with You!!" LOL !!! She actually thought that's what he said. Oh goodness!!! Guess we should go rent the movie? =P
Here's one more card I made with image sent to us from Nicole of Inky Impressions for round 2 of her DT call. I don't know why that pink button looks so bright and orangy, but IRL it actually matches the pink paper really well! LOL...guess my lighting didn't hit it right. Anyway, the top strips of green and blue are actually shiny satin ribbon...betcha couldn't tell that either huh? Feel free to click on the picture if you wanna see closer up. I used a white gel pen to add polka-dots to her shirt, and pink stickles to her bracelet and headband. Thanks for droppin in!! ☺

So when are you going to hear about the DT? Surely she has picked you by now!!!!

Your coloring is super terrific, as always. Love the dots on her shirt... another great idea!

We are HUGE Star Wars fans around here. You definitely should rent the movies... of course the old ones are the best.

Love ya,
