So yesterday, Ella and I visited my folks after Ellas Dr. appt. It was Mom’s bday on Sunday, so we decided to try the new Mexican restaurant in Sauk City, called Jose’s. Great little restaurant and it was delicious. Since my Dad is always so quick to grab the check, I told the waitress I wanted the check since it was Mom’s bday and I was treating…and apparently inadvertently I opened Pandoras box. I didn’t think too much of it when one of the waiters slung a guitar over his shoulder..I may have been short on caffeine at that point?…but once I saw the waitstaff gathering around and clapping I thought…oh boy..this could be FUN! Yup, Mom was serenaded and treated to Fried Ice Cream. I think she was as red as the chili peppers in the place and I’m sure she’s very thankful that I’m her daughter!
Sometimes we get an adorable stamp set that just makes you laugh! That’s what I feel about the Taco Fiesta set, it’s stinkin’ cute and just so happy I certainly hope it’s carried over into the new catalog because it’s just plain ol’ fun! My Taco card sold out in Card Buffet this month so I needed to come up with a new taco card, because everyone needs tacos, right? So the T-shirts of the waitstaff were Black, Poppy Parade and Parakeet Party with fun and punny sayings on the back. I used those colors in my card, along with the Alphabet Ala Mode dies to create this card.
I added a little sombrero to my card Ala Mom and spiced up my Sombrero with Wink Of Stella.
The cool part with that Alphabet Die set is that you can spell Hola however your like. With the exclamation points – you know, like ¡Hola! It would be easy to do and I think I’ll add it as an option for Card Buffet. It would make my Spanish teacher happy because it would be more of a complete sentence, right? I’m pulling on memories from 40 years ago..so I’m not really sure of the rules for Spanish grammar. You can watch the video below if you would like to see the step by step. Thanks again and happy stamping!
