Pin It


Loads of Love

Okay, I wasn't going to share this card because of the bad coloring job on the wheels, but I'm seriously running out of material...I mean I had to! lol! I do NOT recommend trying to watercolor with Basic Black! I should have used the Basic Gray that I used for the center of the tire. You know I'm not much of an *artiste* when it comes to the watercoloring, but I had to for this set because I needed a card for my stepdad's birthday last month. I don't have too many masculine sets, so I pulled out the old Loads of Love. He's a real pickup guy, so it was perfect!

Speaking of wheels, here's one of my finer moments at the Albertson's grocery store last night. I rounded the corner of an aisle too wide and with too much speed and plowed right into a wire display rack featuring Little Mermaid Ariel toys. A dozen toys went flying into the air, which was bad enough, except they hit an unsuspecting lady deciding which kind of laundry detergent to buy. She jumped a mile high. I felt so bad, and I was laughing so hard. She didn't think it was as funny as I did. I tried talking to her during the *clean-up*, but she got out her cell phone and made a call (probably making sure her insurance was up to date).

So I stroll on trying to seem carefree when I wiped into the side of the aisle. No display sticking out this time, mind you, just the regular aisle. Somehow the plastic white hangers go flying everywhere. I didn't even look behind me to see what the lady was thinking.

The really fun part came when I'm checking out and see 4 white hangers, plus a metal hook with 3 Ariel toys on it. I have to tell the cashier that "I've changed my mind on these." I have decided, however, no more listening to my iPod while I'm grocery shopping...

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Oh dear Angie....I think this card is very cute. The wheels look great. Everything looks great.

As for you in the store -- LOL!!!!

Your work is awesome. I wish my classrooms looked like that when I was younger (I probably would have been more into school & learning with your classroom environment).
Hope all is well!

You aren't the only one..Kyler likes to skateboard on the grocery carts and last week he started to go before I was ready and we knocked over stacks & stacks of those huge cans of chili!! It was lovely!! :)
