The Fruits of my Labor! (and some GH news)
Good Morning Everyone!
Well, here I am with a whole bunch of things to share with you. I have been so busy prepping things for my Open House on Sunday, which has grown from 12 people to 15 possibly 16! I handed out a bunch of invitations, thinking that the normal rule of 1/2 won't come and what do you know...almost everyone I know is coming. I'm so excited and can't wait to show off all my stuff. So what do we have here? First, I must apologize for the skewed nature of the post with the pictures. I've been trying to fix that for about 45 minutes and just don't have time to mess with it anymore. Anyhow, the first picture is of a criss cross box and a double pocket bag. I will fill these both up with the samples that I've made this week and give them as Door Prizes. Another picture is actually the card I did this week for Mojo Monday, which I actually did complete on Monday; but didn't get around to posting until today. The colors I used were Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Black and Teal. For some reason the Teal looks blue; but it's not. I used Simply Said stamp set and embossed the flowers in the heart with versamark and black powder. The last two pictures are examples of the make and take projects we will be doing on Sunday. I will be using different colors for the projects on Sunday and I will post an example of those on Monday. The first make and take we're going to do will be the Cheers to You card. This is a new set for me and I hope everyone enjoys playing with it as much as I did. The second card will be the Thinking of You card and uses the Flower for All Seasons. Both cards use watercoloring, which will be the technique we will focus on.
I've not completed any of my normal weekly challenges this week because of the prep work. However I will be back on a normal track next week, so be sure to stop by Monday for Mojo Monday.
Now onto just a bit of GH news before I leave for the weekend. Today should be good episode as all of PC turns out for the big wedding nuptials of Sonny and Kate. However, something bad happens, someone is shot. I know who; but I won't ruin the climatic moment. If you can't wait until this afternoon, check out WUBS and read for yourself. Apparently Liason's trip to Italy is postponed (go figure!)because Liz is somehow injured and no, she's not the one shot at the wedding. I'm also hearing that Olivia comes with more secrets from the old neighborhood and they're not about Kate, they're about Sonny! Anthony Geary should be back on screen in a couple of weeks and not a moment too soon, if you ask me. It's also going to become apparent that Lulu is not as crazy as she thought when it comes to her mother's "recovery" This point should have been obvious from the moment Ms. Francis returned to the screen. Did GH really think they could get away with not giving the extraordinary Mr. Geary and Ms Francis screen time together? That's like having a hot dog without mustard on it!
Finally, Ric and Claudia...hmmm, can't quite make up my mind if this going to be a new couple thing or a "we had crazy sex one time and now oh my God, I'm pregnant." Should be interesting. Then again, there's never a dull moment in Port Charles.
Have a great weekend everyone!
