Smiling Suit Card
Playdate Cafe's current challenge colors are slate blue, barn red and grey. I had a Diecuts With A View Shimmer Stack that had the perfect colors for this so I decided to play along. I used the sketch at Card Patterns for the base of my design. It also fits the challenge at CASual Fridays of "Getting Edgy." The rubber stamps are by Unity Stamp Company.
I promised to tell you about my "surprise trip" weekend. :) My oldest daughter certainly outdid herself with this one. She had booked reservations at a beautiful bed and breakfast in Jackson, Mississippi (which is about 3 1/2 hours drive away) for a "girl's" weekend. We stayed at the Fairview Inn. We had a beautiful room, a wonderful dinner and breakfast. For an added surprise, she had booked massages at the spa (at the inn) for both of us. After a delicious dinner, we went back to the room and had a girl's pampering night complete with facials, manicures, etc. She had also brought "Fried Green Tomatoes" for us to watch (our room had a 54 inch TV)! Before we came home on Sunday, we did some shopping and went to a movie (saw "Super 8"). What a special and fun weekend. This was my first time at a bed and breakfast and I loved it! :) I didn't want to come home....but afraid that would have upset my hubby and youngest daughter. Wink, wink. :)
