Double fisted coffee drinker....

Maybe that's what I need to stay awake....a cup of coffee in each hand!!



How cute is this Changito?? I hadn't seen this image before, but I went to my LSS the other day in search of the BG Porcelain pack (they STILL don't have it....grrrr....) & found this cutie staring at me from the shelf. I have a credit with this store due to some items I sold at their rummage this past winter....so I didn't even feel guilty buying it. And I *still* have a credit.....I'm being pretty stingy with it & only buy one or two things each time I go. But I had to have this guy.....what a perfect Father's Day card!! He's colored with Copics.....I clear embossed the coffee cups. .....used my Nesties & 3 different papers from My Mind's Eye. Lots of flowers (*masculine* flowers, of course) & leaves....some SU Chocolate Chip ribbon & some twine on top of that. I shredded the heck out of the twine with my scissors to get the ragged look. Tada.....a "manly" card, lol!




Here's a close up of Mr. Changito .....so very manly with his bunny slippers!!




Here's the inside....kind of boring but I wanted to keep it simple .....like most men....lol....



And for your viewing pleasure......a couple of pictures from my front garden.....






That's it. That's all I've got. Tulips. My hyacinth.....pretty much gone. My crabapple isn't even blooming....it blooms when it feels like it, which seems to be every few years. Funny story....my mom has a crabapple in her front yard. It, too, was sporadic in its blooming. The first year it didn't bloom, my dad took a baseball bat to the trunk. Yep, he beat the heck out of it. The next year it bloomed. Could have been a coincidence....or maybe we discovered the secret to getting them to flower....you beat the blooms out of it, lol!!!
