Clean & Simple Teapot Tuesday

The CAS challenge this week on SCS140 is a theme - Cupcakes!  It just so happens that the Teapot Tuesday challenge MMTPT168 this week is also - Cupcakes! so I waited to combine them both to send to  Elsie in Aurora, Colorado.  Elsie's birthday is Oct. 31.  She's the mom of the co-pilot of the helicopter that was shot down with all the Navy Seals aboard a few weeks ago.   We're hoping to try to bring her some birthday cheer so no Halloween or sad cards...just cupcakes...lots and lots of cupcakes!

I'm running on 2 hours of sleep so keeping this short and simple because very soon I will cease to make any sense at all.  Here's the inspiration teapot Cindy chose.  I decided to go with the pattern and pretty colors.

Look what I caught...after I took the photo!

That pearl is definitely not supposed to be there...guess it's tired too.

Clean & Simple Monday

Today is my DH's birthday.  We have grown old together and I have to say, the second half is so much better than the first was.  We celebrated yesterday, just the two of us and it was good.  I never, however, give him his card until his actual birthday so here is what he got this morning when he got up to make the coffee...yes, he does that!

I wanted something simple but not fishing or BBQ like I usually do and then I spied a old deck of cards that we got at Churchill Downs years ago.   They give the cards they use for gambling away (no we didn't do that!) but first they put a hole clear through the entire pack of and all.  I have no idea why.  Now you know where the idea for the banner die across the front came from.  He had a hole clean through his middle!

He left me a sweet note saying he loves this card the mostest of any...maybe 'cause I wrote mushy stuff inside, you think?
