*Copied Myself (and Tracy) Again*

What a great weekend we've had so far. It's been a little busy, but not nearly as bad as last weekend with all of the birthday celebrations.

Friday night the four of us went to see "Wild Hogs". It isn't the best movie I have ever seen, but you sure do laugh a lot. I'm not the kind of person who laughs out loud very often, but I did quite a bit during this movie. William H. Macy is hilarious in this role. Not sure that it's totally a family movie, but I think my kids have probably seen and heard worse (no nudity, some swearing and questionnable dialogue, but they survived).

Saturday was a most beautifully warm day.... +18C (64*F) which is totally uncharacteristic for March in Calgary. We were out running errands most of the day unfortunately... but that's OK. I was in shirt sleeves and sandals so I was happy! Last night Bruce and I went out with our good friends Jeff and Denise to our favourite hole in the wall for wings! I love going out for wings. YUMMMMM If you live in Calgary, you gotta check out the wings at Juliet's Castle... 16th Ave near Peter's Drive In. The place is a dive, but the wings are awesome... cheap on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays!

So, on to my copied card. I absolutely loved the card that Tracy did. So I made one very similar to it. And I loved it so much that I had to make another... similar but different.

I changed the pink from Pink Passion to Pixie Pink and of course changed a few other items... otherwise the card is so much the same LOL!

I bought the flower brad in the left corner at Scrapbookers Paradise on Wednesday in a package of brads (all flowers, some are pink, some are blue, some are patterned, some are plain) and my girlfriend Kelly told me I had to be sure to use them... not put them aside and not use them because they are too pretty. So I pulled them out and made a card to go with the brads. Maybe the rest will sit in the package unused LOL!

items used:
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Pixie Pink, Certainly Celery, Basic Black
Ink: Stampin' Up! Whisper White Craft Ink, Basic Black Classic Ink
Images: Stampin Up!
Ribbon: Dots, Dashes and Checks from Michaels
Embellishments: flower shaped brad by Deja Views, Sakura Stardust Gel Pen
Tools: various sized circle punches and a pop dot
