Thanks a Latte

I hope everyone had a great weekend. We certainly did. I was off from both jobs on Friday and Kip was off on Saturday and only had to work a couple of hours on Sunday. It was so nice. Our schedules haven't been lining up too well over the past couple of months so this weekend was a very welcome surprise. On Saturday we slept in, very late (until the phone rang!!) and then met my in-laws for an early lunch. I wish everyone that I know had in-laws as great as mine are. My mother-in-law was on a trip recently and brought me back a pretty bracelet that she gave me at lunch. After lunch, we went to Hobby Lobby and looked around for a bit and then rejoined the in-laws and our niece and nephew for a movie. Against my will, we went and saw Race to Witch Mountain, which was a remake of a movie that I remember seeing and enjoying as a child. I was really shocked that I enjoyed this movie as much as I did, it was pretty good. The only reason I didn't want to see it was that it was a remake. But since I think it was the only PG movie, I agreed to give it a try. The theatre is in front of Jo-Anns, and I got Kip to agree that I could go shopping if the movie was bad! We got to spend a lot of much needed time together so I ignored the computer most of the weekend. I did manage to get in some crafting time, but the computer stayed off for the most part. 

My card tonight used the MFT set Hot Stuff. I picked this background paper from DCWV and decided to use the colors of the dots for my accent colors rather than trying to match the pink. I think I like the way it turned out. The image was stamped with the black Memento ink and then the sentiment and the coffee beans were stamped with the Memento brown ink. I colored the woman with Copics and Prisma markers. My ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

Mom update: She is home for the hospital and there is someone coming to the house to help with her physical therapy. She is still in a lot of pain but when I talked with her today she said the thought she was going to live. I asked if Dad was taking good care of her and she said he was waiting on her and then she said that she thought it make take a very long time to recover! Thanks for your well wishes.
