Hi, are you having a great Monday so far?? I am. I am on vacation today and tomorrow—at home, but it’s nice to be home doing whatever I’d like and have the rest of the fam busy about their days at school and work *Ü* This past weekend I took my girls to our annual “Girls Night Out” where we stay at a fancy hotel out of town with a pool, and we dine out at a fancy restaurant that we only go to once a year, see a movie (we saw the Mighty Macs this time) … and let’s see, oh what they would say is the best part… (but the employees worst nightmare I’m sure) we go to a shoe store and try on the funkiest high heels and wedges and strut down the shoe aisles like we’re in a fashion show. Yep, we had a blast! *Ü*
Anywhoo… I am a bit late in posting my card for this week’s Stampin’ Sisters in Christ challenge, which is *TIME*… to use something that resembles time/seasons etc. This may not look like it fits, but I did use the word “TIME” in my sentiment. It’s that time of year when we show appreciation to our clergy/pastors. So this will go to our pastor this Sunday, along with some delicious home-made “canned” pears (my MIL gave us a dozen jars that she canned this year--Yumm!) You can read my sentiment closer up in my 2nd photo.
I’m also entering this into this week’s Geometric challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs, which is to use 3 shapes; I used a square, a rectangle, and an oval.
Here is the inside of easel card. I will write on the vanilla c.s.
If this sentiment looks familiar, it’s because I used it for another P.A. card I made in 2008. Funny how I totally forgot about that card until just last week when one of my blog readers left me a comment saying she found my card from 2008 and loved the sentiment and copied it for a card for HER pastor this year. It’s all good… we are actually attending a different church so we have a different pastor. And even if I did give a different card with the same sentiment to the same man 3 yrs. later, chances are he won’t even remember. Funny story, my mom gave my dad the same Father’s Day card to him for about 3 yrs. in a row to see if he would notice. Of course… he didn’t!! LOL.
