The first is a series of dots glued onto a background paper and then the whole piece is run through the embosser. This card uses the Stampin' Up! lattice folder. It gives the card such neat texture. This card sketch may make another appearance at Christmas time.
The second card also aims to use up scraps, and while I like it well enough, I think it needs a big round thing on the left hand side. The three cards hiding under the top one don't actually have a greeting stamped on them. How many autumnal birthday cards does a person need? I am thinking thank you notes since someone has a birthday coming. ;)
Maggie MondayMy aunt sent an email about a conversation my 92 year old grandmother, Maggie, had with her doctor. In order to understand the whole dialog that follows, you have to know that Maggie was recently prescribed a cream--for what I will not say because it will make you not want to get old--that cost $90. The next day Maggie asked my aunt if they should shop around at other pharmacies so they could get it cheaper. And away we go:
Maggie to doctor: Do you have a black pill for me?
Doctor: A magic pill?
Maggie: Something that will put me out of my misery.
Doctor: You have many good years left.
(Aunt relays story to me)
Me: It's a moot point anyway. The pharmacy would charge her too much for it.
Ba-dum dum. We'll be here all week, ladies and gentlemen, making fun of old ladies. (If you are new to my blog, please click on the Maggie Monday label. It should explain some things.)
