End of the Weekend

Hello everyone! Here we are at the end of another weekend. They go by so fast, don't they?  DD#2 saw a poster that had the phrase "How come Friday is so far away from Monday, and Monday is so close to Friday?" It really made me giggle since I feel the same way. It's been a very fun and productive weekend for me. Enjoyed our anniversary on Friday, got some chores done, canned some tomatoes and made some salsa, and got my house decorated for fall. Phew, I'm tired!!  :) The only thing I didn't get to do was craft, but that's ok, I'll get in there soon. Well, since our anniversary has passed I can share the card I made for DH.

I bought him a smoker for his anniversary present and thought this card worked perfectly. I've been waiting to make a masculine card so I could try using some embossing on plumber's tape. One of my ladies brought it to the crop we had and gave me some. It works great and the best part, it's already got adhesive on it!! :) Talk about re-purposing!! lol She used it with a snowflake embossing folder and it was adorable! Well, I hope you enjoy what's left of your weekend and I thank you for taking a moment and stopping by. Have a great week!
