Happy Thursday, everyone! I had an embarrassing experience at the grocery store last week; I brought expired coupons to the register and tried to use them....I honestly had my dates mixed up, but the check-out coach graciously put them through anyway! Amazing! I wanted to give her a little thank you note to tell her how much I appreciated it, since the fault was totally mine. I had these W+9 florals already stamped and diecut in my bin, so I fished them out and went to work. I used the sketch from Less is More:
as well as a cute little block stamp from Suite Sentiments:
I also used a Hero Arts "thank you", stamped it in white craft ink and heat embossed it on a banner of Basic Black:
When I gave it to her, along with a little treat bag of Hershey's kisses, she almost cried! I had to scoot because I was ready to cry too! I imagine she doesn't get anything but complaining from her customers!
Anyway, I don't have a picture of Cassidy today for you, but I did see this little lady (I was told the males have red in their moustaches, and this one doesn't) on my suet feeder right outside my kitchen window a couple days ago! YIKES! These pileated woodpeckers are elusive, so to have one fiercely hammering away at my suet was quite a sight! My Paper Players teammate Jaydee always has them, and I am always jealous, so I was very excited to see her. The photos aren't very good because they were taken through a screen, but they were good enough for me!
Thanks for indulging my bird-nerdiness! Have a blessed day! And by the way, I FOUND my "n" from my Labeler Alphabet!!! Yippee!!
