Criss Cross Card

I have seen variations of this card on all the blogs I stalk and decided to try my hand at it. I was much easier than I had thought it would be and I will most likely be making some more in the coming days. I used chocolate cardstock and covered it with PP from Cosmo Cricket. I matted the ivory insert with burgundy textured cardstock and cut a file folder tab with my QK squeeze; topped the tab with Primas and a brad. The band is made from textured cardstock and the ribbon is Amerian Crafts. It's too bright for this card and I intend to pick up a few brown ribbons this weekend. I can't believe that I am all out.

Here is the insert. I stamped the sentiment with StazOn Timber Brown ink. I really like the looks of this card, very cute. I'll make a few of these for the festival to see how they do. They should go pretty fast!

My hubby just got off the phone with the doctor's office. I hate the place we go, but it is the closest to our house with pretty good doctors. His arthritis meds are not effective any longer and he really needs to see the doctor because the pain is unbearable. In any case, the last few times we've called to make an appointment, you are prompted to leave a message with all your information as they promise to return the call within 24 hours. Not a good thing when you are in pain! In any case, we didn't get a call back last month and today he called another doctor and asked about the procedure to get records changed to their office. Well, once they found out why, they called and miracuoulsly he has an appointment this afternoon and they are sending him to a specialist on Monday for one of his issues. He had a lengthy discussion with the receptionist about this new procedure with the was not good; of course, I am sure his complaint will not change the policy!

Should be a pretty quiet weekend. Cody wants his little friend, Luther, to come over for the day. He's a cutie, but the last time I had him over, it was total chaos. One of the drawbacks of having only one child is that the noise factor seems much more amplified with visitors. That may be the only drawback of having only one child! Anyway, I think we'll have him over on Sunday and I can take them to the park or somewhere to get out some of that energy! Maybe rent a few movies for the evening and chill! The boys will be playing Cody's new games, so maybe they'll be outta my hair for a bit so that I can get some cleaning done.

Love this card. The PP, the ribbon- everything about it! I've got to try one of these! Thanks for stopping by my blog. What a mess! BTW, I am originally from East Tn. (primarily Knoxville.) We moved for DH work in 2003. I miss the mountains greatly!
