Leavin on a jet plane and i do know when I'm comin home again


Last night I needed to make a thank you. And since I liked how it came out -I made another! I know a lot of people do this routinely but I never do. I'm going to have to make a practice of this from now on. (card makins: paper is foofala, oval and oval scallop punches, red seam binding instead of ribbon, StampinUp! sentiment and my sewing machine.)
Tomorrow we are getting up at an ungodly hour to first drop off our daughter at a friends house (and they will make their way to their school to take the SAT) and then head on over to Dulles to catch a plane to Detroit. Why you ask? We are going to a nephew's wedding. A very special nephew ('cos otherwise i wouldn't be flying to Detroit on Saturday morning - I guess I'd be driving the daughter to the SAT ... but i digress.) We'll arrive in Detroit - maybe have time for a short nap - i live on naps - dress and be shuttled off to the church, shuttled back to the reception (thankfully held in the hotel we are staying at), then head back home on Sunday morning. Yeah, I think there's gonna be a whole lotta nappin goin on.

It will be nice to see my husband's family - they are quite a crew and will all be there in force for the big day. This is the 2nd nephew (dh's side) to marry. (Yes, we've reached that stage where everyone has married, had children and now the children are marrying. How the heck did that happen?) There is another wedding coming up in July - a niece getting married. By then there will probably a few more weddings slated..... it's a big family LOL!
Anyway I'm thinkin I may snag a few postcards in the airport or hotel. (you catch how i worked that segue in .......) Here's today's postcard: i like the crispness of the colored leaves on the white background for some reason.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I'll see you Monday!

Elegant card, and gorgeous pc too. I'm surprised you only made 2 of those cards...that sure is a nice one to have on hand!

Ah, no pepperoni at the neighbors...LOL! I had purchased gluten free casein free soy free organic stuff at health food stores last week (cookies, gummy bears, lollipops, dried blueberries). I packaged them in leftover Memories ziploc bags w/ SU! halloween dp and stamps at the top, so they looked as if they were store-bought halloween items. While the girls were at school that morning, I took them around to my neighbors' houses for them to pass out to my children when we showed up to trick or treat. So, no pepperoni. Julia had eaten some for breakfast that morning anyway :)

Hope you have (had) a blast at the wedding! Love that stamp, it's one of my faves (I have a lot of faves, but that's one of them :)

I certainly hope you got your nap before that wedding or you could very well have fallen asleep during the ceremony. I bet you're exhausted. I kept meaning to email you on Friday knowing you were about to leave, but it got away from me.

Forgot to say how much I love that Thank you card. My colors you know. Also, how did you color the leaves on the postcard??? So pretty and rich.
