The Egg-gather.........

WOW!! Did you have fun yesterday at World Card Making Day??!

This is me, excitingly jumping around, clapping hands and turning circles!!!:

"Do you KNOW what day it is!!?"

Hubby: "ya, it's combining beans day......."

Me as I slunk away: "That's what I was thinking ......."

You probably recognize that format from Paperlicious who has the funniest and sometimes sweetest posts with her and her hubby...Mine is still in training-to-understand a cardmaking frenzy!

Now for my post.

Our weekend egg gatherer of 4 years gave her notice a couple of weeks ago and left us, going on to higher circles, riding off into the sunset.........I know she will miss those hens and they will miss her and holy cow ------We will REALLY miss her!!

So now hubby is back to gathering eggs on the weekends and reminiscing about years ago, when his brothers took off to their girlfriends' every weekend and left him home EVERY weekend to gather eggs by himself. *sniff sniff*

When I remind him that I was there, as his girlfriend, helping him out, every weekend, he smiles and says "oh yeah, can you do it today?" Funny.

This is the card I am sending Amy for a thank you. I like the way this turned out even though there is no stamping involved.

I used a page from Crafty Secrets Birds and Botanicals Images and Journal Notes and then proceeded to distress it up by adding twine and roughing it up a bit.

I added a bit of stitching around the sides and sponged in a few spots.

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Mixed Messages and is stamped onto the Cuttlebug Tiny Tag die! I love that tag die!!

Well, tomorrow is my annual physical and let's just say I will be happy when it is over!!
