Thread it...Friday challenge

Well today's challenge at notimetostamp is to thread it...could be threading a ribbon through or a button or sewing, well you get it don't you? I decided to thread some ribbon through my card because at my age threading a needle calls for major coke bottle glasses help. To thread the ribbon through was a dangerous task as I used my exacto knife and look out people Jack the Ripper is in town. Don't look to close or you'll see I didn't do a very even job but at least there is no blood anywhere. I used some neat paper I got from my boyfriend Mike's place and my Nesties for the circles. The stamp is from Autumn Leaves ( I love the cheap bargain basement prices on these stamps.)I tried doing this card with a phrase attached and it didn't do anything for me, no flutter of the heart beat or any excitement so I went plain. I added a little rust chalk around the outer edges of my stamed image to get it to blend with the rust color of the paper. That's it for the card.
Time for fun again and this weekend is the tea party to raise money for the foster kids to go to camp. Hope we get tons of money so we can send many kids to camp. I will bake my wonderful stuffed that makes you wonder doesn't it? Well they are super yummy little pocketed brownies that I fill with a cream and whipped cream filling. They are to die for and if you are very good I will give you the receipe one of these days. Have a great weekend and hug all of your loved ones good and tight. See you next week.

this is very pretty mom! I am hoping for a great weekend -- one filled with lots of funds raised for the kiddos! I didn't talk to you today but I actually met up with one of my former Waiting children. I interviewed him when he was 7. He's 16 now! WOW -- he's grown into a really handsome young man who has been adopted!!! So.. YEAH! Long story short -- go raise some big bucks for those kids!
