I hope you all had a nice and relaxing weekend. Mine was not productive, but I really enjoyed it. I even had one thing that turned from being a bad thing to a really good thing. Let me explain...
I am the oldest of 5 children. Three of my siblings are boys and I love them lots, but they drive me a little nuts. I know this is pretty typical, but my brothers are an acquired taste to say the least. So imagine my complete surprise when for Christmas three years ago they got me the best present ever! They usually get me nothing or something kind of ridiculous. However, that Christmas they totally surprised me with Tassimo coffee machine. They pooled their money (and they did not have much) and got me a gift that I did not ask for, but really really wanted. The thought that they put into this gift was something that was completely foreign to me. I use my Tassimo everyday... seriously, everyday!
Anyway, on Sunday it breathed it's last breath and that was it. My favorite Christmas gift ever gone. I was so sad, but then knew that it was going to happen eventually. I called them and thanked them again for this wonderful gift which really meant a lot to me. Then set off to Macy's to replace it. In doing this I actually discovered another machine that would suit me even better than the original. Joy has a Keurig and just loves it, so knowing this I took a leep of faith and bought it. HOLY CANOLI, I love my new coffee maker! It is FABULOUS. It even makes one of my favorite drinks which is half lemonade and half iced tea. So basically, I almost literally turned lemons into lemonade ;-)
Today's card is made using the Florals Embellished cartridge and papers that I printed out using Lori's Garden and my Imagine.
