08-08-08

I love numbers. Funny, because Math isn't one of my favorite subjects, although I did fine with it in school (waaaaay back when....lol). I am one of those people who remember everyone's addresses and phone numbers in my head. If I have ever dialed your phone number once, I remember it the next time. I have all the credit card numbers and driver's license numbers of everyone in my family memorized.

I would rather carry an address book and remember more useful and important information - like how to get to the airport and back without making 2 extra turns.......know what I mean? My husband comes back from England this weekend and I will drive the three hours to pick him up. Hopefully I will remember how to get there the SHORT way. haha

I do remember how to get to the Michael's there......hmmmm.....

In any case, I love that today is 08-08-08. Happy Eights Day!!

Back to school on Monday! My posts here will probably be in the evenings now on days that I work, so if you don't see something new, keep checking back! Next week brings new releases and designs for the companies I am designing for this month: Hambo Stamps and Our Daily Bread Designs.... and next week brings BLOG CANDY!

I am also excited to announce that I will be hostessing the Limited Supplies Challenge at SCS in a rotation with five other great hostesses: dawnmercedes; jeanne s; stagccva; stampinsilvia; and wendybell! My first challenge will be August 29. I hope you all will play along! Dawn had a great challenge today: ATC cards (small cards) that could be used as Lunch Notes!

I made this little card: I made this little ATC card with one of my cute Charlie Horse stamps from Clear Dollar Stamps. I hadn't used Magic Mesh in ages, and thought it looked neat with the fence that I pieced from some Cosmo Cricket paper I had on my "pile." My little lasso is made from Linen Thread.My puppy was so helpful this morning, as she bumped my arm as I was drawing my barbed wire doodle around the sentiment! The frame around Charlie is actually a stamp with the set.I like the reminder of this idea to leave little notes in places you least expect!

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps
Paper: Basic Grey Circus Stripe DP, Cosmo Cricket Wanted DP, Mellow Moss, Whisper White, DCWV Textured Brown
Ink: Black Stazon, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Blush Blossom, Copic C-1 (which leaked on my horse!)
Accessories: star eyelet, linen thread, circle punches, Bitty Brads by CTMH, Fiskars decorative scissors, Magic Mesh, sponge dauber

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Charlie is a cutie! I like the mesh on this. And your barbed wire doodle has its own character, right?

Now wait a minute, there are a dozen or more "Airport" signs going to Eppley (I'm assuming he's flying into Omaha) and no advance signs going to Michaels. Hmmmm....

That's okay, I can find the Archivers in Omaha quite easily, but not the Scheels which is right next door. ;)

Adorable card.

This is so cute! I LOVE your doodling!

nancy morgan said...

what an adorable card! I love all those little extras you added...you have such a great eye! As for numbers, like 8-8-08, my youngest was due to be born on 8-8-88, but she came a day early!

Have a great week : )

This is so cute! I love Charlie. I don't have this one (although I have several others). Love the magic mesh too...works well with the rustic/country idea.
