Need some card ideas, but don’t have time to design it, cut the paper, and then make the card?  Stampin’ Up! has a new kit you can purchase!

Get everything you need to make six cards  (except for the adhesive) for only $15.95 (item 132319)! If six isn’t enough, add Note Cards to your order (item 107311)-Extra rhinestones are already included in the Fancy Friends kit.

To assemble the cards:

  1. Stamp the doily image in Daffodil Delight or Old Olive ink three times on the card and once on the envelope, re-inking between uses.
  2. Stamp “Friends” in Daffodil Delight or Old Olive ink on the front of the card.
  3. Adhere the flowers to the card. Adhere Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of the flowers.

It’s that simple!

Now the Sandy update.  I went to the store yesterday to buy supplies for the storm.  With all the moisture in the air, my sinuses have been killing me, so my first stop was the pharmacy.  The assistant asked how she could help me.

Me:  I need some ibuprofen cold and sinus medicine.
Pharmacy Assistant:  We don’t have Ibuprofen Cold and Sinus.  We have Advil and Tylenol, but not Ibuprofen.
Me:  Hmmmm….what’s in the green and white box between the two boxes of Advil cold & sinus?
Pharmacy Assistant:  Well, it has ibuprofen in it, but it’s not Ibuprofen Cold & Sinus.
Me:  Is it cold and sinus medicine?
Pharmacy Assistant:  Well, yes.
Me:  Ok.  I’ll just take that, then.

I guess the next time, I’ll ask for “your store brand of cold and sinus medicine that has ibuprofen in it.”  Of course, they stop listening and start grabbing stuff after 3 words.

I did buy my “storm food.”

My storm food!

The candy bar is gone.  Silly Hershey’s.  They say that’s 3 servings.  Seriously????

I’m ready for some hot chocolate.  Mike & I went to Costco to pick up his meds (their pharmacy is closed on Sundays, so we had to wait until today).  I had my new rain boots (too cute) and Mike’s blue “Morton’s Fisherman” Quality Electric rain coat.  Holy cow!  The wind is starting to pick up and the rain blew up my sleeves, I think.  And that raincoat may keep one dry, but when it gets wet on the outside, it’s really cold on the inside.

New rain boots!

Local schools are closed tomorrow.  We’re not sure about colleges/universities yet, so I may have to head to campus at 9:30 a.m.  (bleh)  But for tonight – we’re all safe and warm.  It’s raining and windy, but not really bad here.  We’re praying for all those in areas that are getting hit much harder.  If you don’t have to go out, don’t!  Stay safe, warm and dry!

Have a wonderful day – and thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy!

    Your rain boots are cute. They look as if they have champagne glimmer paper inserts in the sides!! Hope you fared well in the storm. It is now cold and wet in Central Kentucky, but they had serious snow in the mountains east of us. Take care!

      Thanks, Luralyn!! It does look like glimmer paper in the photo. Actually, it’s a gray “rubber boot” insert with cute little sparkly studs. And the boots work great!! Hope you’re warm and dry this week!
