PRETTY!! fowers!

I had a very sleepy weekend. I don't even want to talk about how late I slept in on Saturday and Sunday mornings. I didn't get much accomplished Saturday. Got up, went strawberry picking and Kev went to rehearsal. While he was away, I decided to get a mani / pedi.

I have a confession, this was my 3rd pedi ever. Yes, 3rd. You see, I have ridiculously ticklish feet, I can actually tickle my own feet. Don't say it isn't possible, 'cause I can totally do it. Just the thought of someone touching me feet freaks me out. Sometimes when I have an itch on the bottom of my foot, I can't scratch it because it tickles too much. Please don't think I run around with narsty feet, I don't. I also have the freakish ability to touch my nose with my foot. Very handy when giving yourself pedicures. I just do it myself to avoid kicking someone in the head. (Yes, I have kicked Kev in the head when he's grabbed my feet. In my defense, he was given fair warning.)

So, I went to get my toes done and I only squealed once AND she made it through the whole pedicure, arch massage and all!!! GO ME!!! I did give her fair warning before she started, so she knew. When my foot would start to tense, she would yell, "Read your book!". Hey, it worked! I'm very excited to have a pedi that I didn't have to do myself!

I did get a little something crafty done today. I'm going to an SU! swap Tuesday night, it's one where a bunch of demos will be there to swap and to talk about the opportunity to people who might show up. My demo asked me if I wanted to make a card to swap. Well, since I do have a rep to uphold, I said yes. I needed to make 11 card fronts and thankfully she came over tonight to help me get them finished.

Check it out, ALL SU! products. I did have to follow the swap rules! I wasn't planning on doing the shading on every single card I swapped, but she convinced me that it gave a lot of texture to the rose. I stamped the rose in white craft ink on Cameo Coral paper and heat embossed it. We used a blender pen and Cameo Coral ink on the petals. I just love how elegant these colors look together and I am absolutely in LOVE with this stamp set. I think it might have to come home with me.
