you totally ROCK...
Good morning friends.
Can you believe that we are now halfway through this week once again. Omword, it really messes me up when I miss a day and then before you know it the week has just flown bye. So, as is the case lately I am going to make this one a somewhat short post as I still need to head out and enjoy my family for an hour on our walk. Yesterday we ended up cutting it short as I really did not have it in me. I am happy to say however that I am starting to feel myself again and I really don't want to loose any ground with our walking. I think that not only has it helped us all to be in better shape it also gives us each a sense of accomplishment each time we go just a little further down the road.
Remember that I said short, so let me get to the real purpose of my post today. Well here goes. lol... When I was working Saturday we ended up selling a nice lady a new diabetic testing system. Of course our Pharmacist always takes it out of the box and helps the customer to figure out how to operate the devise and understand what it is they are reading and all the info that goes along with test your blood sugars. Most of the time the customer doesn't want the insert to the box, so we end up trying to recycle as much as we can then throw the rest in the trash. Well, I just could not let that beautiful piece of silver foil that is stronger than a thin chip board but thinner go to waste. I brought it home and knew that it had to go on a boys card ASAP. lol.... Once I had my card all done my sweet Madison so nicely pointed out to me that I have used both of these stamps together before, but I think that they just go so well and it really fit into my plan as to want I wanted this card to say. As you can see I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder (spots & dots) to make the foil come alive and tell the story. I wanted to add some brads along with it, but didn't have any in my stash that would work, so I used my old school hand held paper punch to punch out some circles within the circles and I have to admit that I really love how it turned out. I might add that I have to take it to work as they all just can not imagine how it could be used on a card. lol....
Speaking of work, do you remember when I made the sign that had Geisha Anya on it and it was for some beautiful oriental canes that we had for sale? Well, we have sold all the canes but four and when I was heading home the other day I looked over and noticed that someone had RIPPED Anya off of the sign and taken her. It kind of made me sad. If someone had wanted one like her I would have had no problem making on. I just could not believe it. Our pharmacy is privately owned and really not that big at all. We have cameras everywhere with signs and yet people still have no problem taking what they feel they need. It just amazes me! My Grandma (who was 97) used to watch the news and read the paper everyday and then she would shake her head and say "Sometimes I feel like I have lived too long." Well I have to admit that I finally understand what she meant.
Ok guys, I have whined enough. Time to get off my soap box and hit the road. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I will talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs, Lisa G
