Fallin’ Home!

Happy Saturday my friends!  Hope you have a fun, relaxing weekend ahead of you planned.  Amazingly I have NOTHING planned for this weekend, nowhere to go, no big to-do list…even I’m shocked…see my mouth hangin’ open as I write this?!  THAT NEVER HAPPENS…but glad that it is cuz’ I need to get better before I leave for CT on Friday to teach…they NEED me to have my voice and to be standing upright LOL!  Otherwise they will probably take pics of me and put them on the web saying I was drunk or some nonsense ahahahahahaha!  I do need to run out to JoAnn’s and get a few supplies but other than that I’m good to go for the weekend and I plan on NOT doing much either.  I think some reading is in my future along with just sitting on the patio…while I watch hubby mow the lawn Winking smile Payback is sweet sometimes…yes indeedy it is!  If you have NO idea what crazy stuffs I’m talkin’ about just scroll down to read last post and you’ll understand!  And while you are there READ the comments left…OMGosh they made me laugh so hard, thank you to all who posted…I LOLed a few times that’s for sure!  I have a funny below for you that will probably make you spit your drink out and laugh like it did me!  I like to post a Friday Funny on Facebook each week that makes me laugh, snort, smile or all 3 heehee!


I mean let’s put it this way….if I WAS an obedient wife (heaven forbid) life would be sooooooo B-O-R-I-N-G…and I’d not be a nice person hahahaha…there were no words that implied “obey” in my marriage vows, I made sure of that Winking smile

Fallin’ Home!!

Today I’m sharing a card I made for my sister’s birthday next month (shhhhh don’t tell) and I am way ahead on my birthday cards…whoot LOL!  Her and my mom both love primitive style/antiques and love doing puzzles by Charles Wysocki.  So when Paper Trey Ink (PTI) called “Autumn Hills Stamp Set” came out with this set I knew I had to get it.  My sister loves aqua and soft blues so paired up with some choc brown makes a nice fall card.  And I was asked to be a Guest Designer this week for the challenge at “My Sheri’s Crafts Blog” which I was honored to do.  The challenge is “Family”, so you have to make something for family or a family member!

The papers are a mix from a couple of my pads and I distressed them all with my fave Zutter Distress machine, the branch die is from Memory Box called “Leafy Branch” (luv it for fall and for other things like this card here I did). And he tborder was done with a Jumbo MS border punch.  The image was colored with Copics on cream cardstock for a more vintage look, topped with a bow done with my Bow Easy and a button (cardstock, bow & button from PTI).

Have a great fall weekend everyone!  See you on Monday with a fun 
Magnolia-licious Blog Hop called "2 For 1 Holiday!


  1. Beautiful card Suzanne!! I love the colour combo.
    I love your funny!!! I tell my husband all of the time when he says " a good wife would..." that I warned him before we got married if he wanted a good wife he better keep looking (:
    Enjoy your quiet weekend!!

  4. Beautiful card Suzanne! The colors and paper you chose is simply wonderful! Love that stamped image too! Thanks for being GD at My Sheri Crafts this week! :)

  5. I just love this card, the chocolate and aqua together is so yummy. I also, almost 27 years ago, made sure obey was not in my vows, however I wish I'd have made them a part of my :-)

  6. Love the card.
    My daughter got married last Nov. in Spain(while I was at your class in Bloomington,IL)--her vows, read to them by the magistrate did not say obey, but he did say that all household chores were to be shared equally. Love it, maybe we should all go to Spain and renew our vows!!!

  7. What a gorgeous card Suzanne.

    Hugs Riet.xx

  8. Fantastic card just so pretty.


  9. I love that funny! I read it to my husband and even he laughed. This coming from the man that will do a Google search for "how to make a wife be obedient" on my computer when I walk away from it! I tell him all the time that if we wanted an obedient wife he should have married into a different family! Stand strong and thank you for sharing your beautiful card.
