Monday Monday....

This is a card that I created to give to my boss tomorrow, which is her last day. I bought her a bunch of chocolate, coffee {she is a choco-coffee-holic} and a plain white mug....I love what I've been seeing people doing with their rub-ons...that's why I bought the mug. I thought that one of the various new Target $ spot tins that I recently picked up would house everything but no luck chuck. I'll have to pick up something different. I bought a pair of fiskars 'cloud' scissors, that's what I used on the chocolate chip strip...hmmm....I like the slit punch look better BUT the scissors are so much easier to use :)
-------------------------------
stamps: stampin'up tiny talk paper: stampin' up wild wasabi & chocolate chip, basic grey mellow ink: versafine vintage sepia accessories: word window punch, prima flowers, bling, M $ ribbon, fiskars cloud scissors and the janome.

I mentioned yesterday that I have a 'black thumb'....it doesn't mean that I don't love flowers, I do. I just take better care of cut flowers vs plants {lol}. Check out my Camillia bush...it finally bloomed! I moved into my place during the spring of 2006 and it had not bloomed since, well, last week? I happened to notice it yesterday when I looked out the window...We have had some wild weather...Saturday was absolutely gorgeous but it went 'back to normal' yesterday :)

  6. This is so pretty! We have a teeny tiny little camellia that was planted two years ago...and like yours, it just recently bloomed (I think it's the same color too!)
