Love Bites




Good Monday morning! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was pretty great and I had lots of time at my craft table and that always makes me pretty happy. We also celebrated my BIL's birthday and Kip and I were able to catch a movie. We saw  The Cabin in the Woods, guess who's turn it was to pick the movie? I have a card to show you today using a Simply Betty image. Isn't this so fun? I LOVED watching reruns of The Addams Family when I was a kid so I was very happy when I won this image. We didn't have cable and I could only see it if I happened to be at my Grandmother's house in the afternoons, which didn't happen much during the school year, so I mainly saw episodes in the summer. I always though John Astin was such a good looking man! Anyway, my card uses the image from Simply Betty and it was colored with Copics. The paper is from a Recollections pack (I think), swirly things framing the image were cut using a Nestability die, the flowers are from Prima and the sentiment is from the dollar section at Target from a while back.

Another thing that I was able to spend quite a bit of time doing this weekend was reading. I read a lot and usually have a couple of books going at the same time and right now I am reading The Secret Life of Bees. I am going to check out a book club that meets at my local library next month and they are reading Light on Snow. Both of these are really good reads so far. I am almost finished with the first one and have enjoyed it very much. I randomly caught the movie on TV a couple of weeks ago and really liked it so I wanted to read the book. Normally I always read a book first and then see the movie.

Thanks for visiting me today!
