The Metallic Years

I hope you didn't think that I fell into a black hole. My last week was consumed with Girl Scout Day Camp and I am still working on remnants of the week: making thank you cards for all the resource people who came to help. We had about 215 girls at camp this year; down from our almost 300 from last year. But those who came were happy campers. The weather wasn't too bad. A little rain on Friday but we made it through.

I do have a card for you tonight. It didn't photograph well because of the metallic piece in the background. That really is the inner seal to a can of peanuts and I sent it through my Cuttlebug with the argyle embossing folder.

I can't remember where I got the vintage image of the woman golfer but the sentiment, both inside and out is from Marlene at Disguised as a Grown-up. The inside reads: Silver in your hair, gold in your mouth, lead in your ass. I love Marlene's sense of humor. This card is my sister's birthday card. She golfs several times a week and is older than I am, hence the vintage look. I thought the embossed peanut seal looked like a golf ball.

Thanks for hanging in with me. I'm hoping to have more time to create here in the new future.  I do have jury duty during July and I have 2 conferences for work that I don't think I'll be able to get Internet at. Five days in Atlanta without Internet. Oh my. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
