My Secret Friend...

Well, I had a few, over on the Secret Friendship Appreciation Thread on Splitcoast. Heather (stampinmomof2cuties) was the host for the first 4 rounds, bless her heart!! Anyway - I nominated 4 people this time around. My friends Laura (okiechic), Barb (Bbarton), Samantha (Sammystamper) and Cindy (Mothermark)...do you all know Mothermark??

Well - I'm going to tell you a bit about her. I've never met her face to face...in fact, I hardly know her, except for all the times we harass her on the friendship threads. She is FUN-NY, let me tell you. I've had tears in my eyes and coffee on my computer screen a few times reading her posts. I have a feeling that if I were to meet her face to face, we could get into a lot of trouble together...

I decided to nominate Cindy this round, not only so we could torture her *wink*, but to thank her for always being such a good sport about all of the ribbing, and making me LAUGH, nearly every day.

So rumor had it, she likes polka dots, so I decided to make her an etched coffee mug. Have you all ever tried this before??? You really should, it's a LOT of fun, and gives awesome, classy results. Lauren Meader just posted a tutorial on her blog just a few days ago on how to etch with stamps. Also, for always giving her a hard time, Cindy has affectionately called us PSF's that make her crazy..."Stinkers" so I had to make her a stinker card, no??

So here it is...
NOT an easy thing to photograph, that's for sure!!! The mug was completed using images from PTI (Trajan Monogram, and a flower center from Women of Life), and the card was made with an image from Stampin' Up!s "Stinkin' Cute" and PTI's Simple Alphabet.

Cindy's blog is in my left hand 'blogs I read' bar, check her out if you don't know her...she's a BLAST!

Thanks again Cindy - you're a terrific gal!!

I LOVE the blue mug!!! I etched on clear glass the other day for a project (1st time etching). It is a lot of fun! I never would have thought to use a colored glass though! That's next on my list to try!

Oh, and I LOVE reading the threads where everyone is teasing Cindy! Makes me LOL too!
