365 Cards - Mint
I do love playing at 365 Cards, but haven't had the time or energy lately - so today I told myself I would make a card for today, no matter what the challenge was !
Well, that brings me to this oddity... The challenge was "MINT" and you were supposed to use the first thing that came into your head. Get it yet?
Last night on Wordracer at Yahoo I found the word REMINTED for mega points, and reminted only means one thing to me, $$$$$$$$$$$$$. So, of course the first thing that popped into my head when I thought mint, was where the $$ comes from ! I am totally and completely certain that Pam did not intend this interpretation, but it is what it is. I say that often.
So I did a card that could be used for just about anything I think, of course money holder is always a gift that doesn't come often enough to me !! The rattlesnake paper - in the DCWV Weathered and Worn book - I had never dreamed I would ever have a reason to use it, but a wallet it is ! Spencer already had the other snake page from the book, since he loves to make his "cards" and I knew he would appreciate it.
So, here I am, completely without snake paper now. What a tragedy.
Thanks to all of you for the prayers and thoughts for both my father, and for me. He is almost 94 and was supposed to be on his deathbed, but .... well let us put it this way, I don't think he wanted to miss a meal !!! He ate his whole breakfast and may have a bit longer on this earth. He is a man of faith, and has no fear of death - a comfort to know he will not die afraid.
