After the show we went out to eat at the Dublin City Pub (which was literally one of 2 places open after 5 pm. On a Friday night. Do they not know that after 5 is when people eat dinner? Come on, people. Get it together!) The food was delicious and despite the fact that we were all IDed before we were allowed in, it was a great atmosphere. The music didn't get too loud until about the end, but we were also sitting right by the juke box so maybe it was our own fault? Our waitress was even nice and helpful despite the fact that none of us ordered drinks so her tip margins went way down. What a sport!
All in all it was a great night! Great people, great entertainment, great food, perfect night. I love my friends. Also, Iowa.
Now, back to business...
Staying with the theme of birthday cards, I made this card for my friend Sarah whose birthday actually proceeded Jared's. (Don't worry, she did get the card on time.) Fun fact: Sarah has a twin brother Matt who was the ward clerk in my freshman ward. Small world.
|The front. I bought the little cage stamp at Stuff Etc. This was the first project that I used it on.|
|Here you can see that the cover paper is made from scrap paper, again from Puragory. I love it. The book is a flip book, so this is the first page. Can you guess what it's going to spell...?|
|Happy birthday! (The complete message read: Happy Birthday Sarah!!!)|
|Then I wrote a little personal note on the back page.|
Tomorrow: envelope and letter all in one.
