I have been on a roll for a couple of days, making lots of cards, though I see my craft table is becoming increasingly messy, and my workspace shrinking rapidly !

Today's post goes to Just Us Girls, where we need to actually decorate and line an envelope. Very unusual requirement, as most of us don't ever bother with an envelope.

I made the card for my BFF, Rufina, as a thank you for all her help while we were gone on vacation last week. It accompanied a box of English Toffee, which I actually made myself (I know, I always say I am a total klutz in the kitchen...). We went over to her home last night to watch the BCS game, in our jammies, on their "little" tv, 65", and yes, they do have another one even bigger. Sadly our Duckies fell to Auburn, but only by 3 points in the last 2 seconds, so we will live. It was fun while it lasted !!

Ah, and I do have a new Spencer story for my Spencer fans ... He has taken to calling his mother "Tootles" - I have never heard of a 3 year old naming their mom something different, but that is our goofy little guy.

He was playing a variation of the usual baby/toddler game, Chase/Catch/Imprison/Escape ... when he called out to his mother

"Help me, Tootles, help me ! Use your tap dancing powers !!!"

His mom has never tap danced a step in her whole life - we were all left saying "huh??" But "Tootles" did her best ... darn those tap dancing powers anyway.
