the conversation on Christmas Eve...

I'll give you the shortened version...

Picture this...me in the kitchen making the trimmings for Christmas dinner...

Rick in the studio...

Rick...hey blondie...is it OK to use any red cardstock I find in here?

me...sure

Rick...I know you paid a lot for this paper trimmer & it's old...but it still works great.

me...yep...I love it...(my genesis)

Rick...I stamped on bumpy red cardstock & it doesn't look good. I bet I should have used flat cardstock...right?

me...yes dear...

Rick...OK...I'll trash this one...

Rick...One of my favorite tools in here is this paper creaser thing.

me...Yep...LOVE my Scor-it...

Rick...hey wen...I need white ink to stamp on black. Why doesn't Ranger make white ink?

me...they do...look in the ink drawer. It's called snow cap...

Rick...DUH...I was looking for a lid that says "plain white ink".

me...I'll ask Justin & Alain @ CHA if they'll change the label just for you...NOT!

Rick...can I use one of these sparkly green flowers or are they "just to look at?"

me...you can use one...or 3...odd numbers are good.

Rick... these red envelopes don't match the red card. Is it ok to use a white envelope instead?

me...sure...

Rick...do you care if the envelope isn't 100% perfect?? It's JUST the envelope...

me...it's fine...whatever..................

Rick...(laughing hysterically)...wait 'til tim see's this masterpiece. You might be demoted on the cruise...He might want me doing classes & he might tell you to go park it on a deck chair...

me...REALLY??

Rick...hey blondie...we'll find out if Maya Road reads your blog...

me...what???

Rick...if they see this card, they'll be asking me to make CHA samples for them...but I'll have to tell them I only do cards...not those books you make them...they take too long...

that's the short version...

So...I'm sure you're dieing to see "THE MASTERPIECE"...

Your wait is over...

Here's his card...



Not bad... although I do not see any studio 490 stamps...only tim's...Oh well...it's the thought that counts.


This guy is always worth a laugh...or 10...


I hope you laugh today and...
MAKE ART!

I think it's great that Rick gets in there and creates. My DH made some note cards with some of his photography a couple of weeks ago and I loved it that he was using my supplies.

Great card, Rick! I see you impressed us all including T!m. Just remember, if you start teaching in Wendy's place she'll go shopping & buy even MORE shoes!
