TCPTUES99--A Sketch From Leigh
Well, it's Tuesday. Another week just flying by. Yes, I'm already saying it even thought it's only Tuesday. When I think about everything I have going on this week, I'm already getting behind during the minutes I contemplate it! (Remember, I'm a slow stamper?) Not to mention the fact that today is the day I go to work an hour in Audrie's kindergarten class (pray for me), Eric's been home the last two days with laryngitis, and I have an itchy, scratchy throat myself. I did take a swig of some apple cider vinegar yesterday on the advice of a friend that swears by it and it's supposed to kill all that ails you as it goes down. I think it did that and then some. I don't want to talk about it.
Needless to say, I did not get a card done for today's TCP Tuesday Challenge for The Cat's Pajamas, but I wanted ya'll to be sure and get the 411 from me just in case ya'll came here looking for it (because I know ya'll love me!). Leigh is our fabby Hostess with the Mostess and she's got a great sketch for us to play with. We'd love for you to play along, and be sure to add your creation to the Slideshow on Alma's Blog to be entered to win $25 in Cat Cash (she'll have it posted a little later)!
HOWEVER, I do have a card (several really, but I'll give you this one for now as I need to go take a shower) to show you that I did using TCP's latest release set, A Beary Good Year. I think it's one of my all-time favorite cards I've done. I know I'm a little late for Valentine's Day, but I.don't.care. I never got the chance to show ya'll it for V-Day because I was so busy being romantic and in love the whole month of February that in all my blissfulness, it slipped my mind. Believe me? I hope not.
SUSIE Q-TIP: I just watched a news segment on the Today Show (Matt Lauer is hot) about stores selling used underwear that people have returned. You'd think they would focus on a big store like Wal-Mart for this, but we're talking Victoria's Secret, Frederick's, Macy's, Bloomingdale's, The Gap--all those! Every single store happily returned the merchandise (with no tags on them), and put them directly back in stock on the shelves without even inspecting them for wear (and/or stains)! Well, maybe 2 of the stores didn't restock them, but without 100% assurance if they do this 100% of the time, that's just gross! ALWAYS wash your newly purchased underwear when you get it home before wearing it! You never know where its been or if its got cooties (a biochemist on the show assured us they did). More than a SUSIE Q-TIP, this has been a public service announcement. Just doing my duty to keep ya'll informed and cootie-free.
