Merry Monday 29
My friend LeAnne inspired me with the card she made for the Merry Monday Sketch #29 challenge. I had to stop and made a card straight away -- with the new Fancy Tags 3 that my DH brought back for me on his quickie trip to Texas last week.
My card base is Vintage Cream from Papertrey Ink, Stampin' Up Real Red, and patterned paper from an old SU paper pack. Stamps and ribbon are also from Stampin' Up.
Here's the sketch from Merry Monday....

Had a new experience this past week. While DH was in Texas a friend and I went out to eat at a restaurant owned by a French gentlemen. My friend is German and when she saw that "tongue" was on the menu, she was so excited. She has told me in the past what a delicacy tongue is considered to be in Europe and she laughs because most North Americans made an awful face when she mentions it! Well, I have to admit, the thought of eating tongue has never appealed to me very much either, but adventurous soul that I am, she talked me into having a bite. It actually was not bad at all -- no wild or grainy taste -- after the first bite, I even took the second!
So long for now,
