My Favorite Day: Thursday!!

Today is my favorite day, and has always been for as long as I can remember:  THURSDAY!!  Why, because it is the day before Friday.  It has been the day before the last day of school, party night, last day of work, and now that I am a "senior," the last day before good TV night.  For a lot of people, Friday is their favorite day.  But for me, I like to start on Thursday so that I have 4 days in a row that are great (the day to anticipate, the day before weekend, and the weekend).  It's like Ronda said last night at our meeting, people don't "get" or "give" joy in their life, they "choose" to have or give joy.  So I guess this is my way of choosing to have one extra day to enjoy, instead of moping around on Thursday wishing it was Friday.

So in honor of my favorite day, I'm posting 3 pictures.  Probably not something that you would like (yah, I'm selfish like that), but three of my favorites.

This is another Trivet that I made for the WOW table last night.  I used a 6" x 6" Tile and sponged the entire top with Creamy Carmal Classic Ink, then stamped on the French Filigree using Chocolate Chip Classic Ink.  I then took my Parisian Damask Decor Stencil and used just the flower section and sponged in Cameo Coral, Rubby Red, and Bravo Burgandy Classic Inks.  Heated in oven, cooled, sprayed with Champaing Mist Shimmer Paint, applied Arylic Sealer, and used Sticky Tape to adhere 1/4" Bravo Burgandy ribbon around edges.  This took 20 minutes to complete (including the 10 minutes in the oven).  I love this so much because I colored it to match my dishes on my Pie Cabinet.


Here is a picture of it on the WOW table.

I made this card for my niece's bridal shower, using one of my very favorite stamp sets that is discontinued.  I used a piece of the Flower Fantasy Printed Window Sheet for the top layer adhered with brads and punched flower to cover up boo-bo hole.  Image was stamped in Whisper White Craft Ink, then White Embossing Power with a hint of Dazzling Diamonds.  Used the Eyelet Border Punch on right of my Rich Razzleberry Cardstock layer and again on a small piece of Whisper White.  Bravo Burgandy Cardstock was used for the base of the card.

And finally, I can't resist showing you a picture of the newest member of my family -- that would be "Wally" on the left.  He is the son of "Harley" on the right.  And of course that is the old man (aka, my dear husband) holding them.  I did not want another dog, but my dear husband (hmmph) said he would take him to work to train him.  Yep, you guessed it -- it hasn't happened all week, or ever!!  So right now he is over chewing up my last tennis shoe.  Oops, sorry he is picking it up to take into his bed pen to save it for later.  I'm allergic to dog hair, never have been a great pet lover -- but do try to spoil my husband every once in a while.  Well, I guess I like my dogs because they are cute (LOL, can you tell that I am prejudice!).

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find Thursday just as joyful as I do!!
