Special Kay…

Hey there.  Kay has decided that my blog needs a little more fun and is going to treat us with a few more days of her goodness.  It seems todays post involves "barf" talk – ha – sorry about that. :)   You can tell how much fun she is – we have a good time together. We could spend hours crafting and laughing.  Our best crafting time was when she went with me to my favorite stamping retreat and spent every moment making cards – I think it was 46 in total.  Here she is…

Aloha! It’s Kay again, and in the words of King Julian (Madagascar 2): ?You gotta love a non-hostile takeover." That’s right! I’m taking over the blog for a week! Why? The response to the last post was incredible. If I had a cookie for every nice comment someone wrote, I would be one happy teenager.   Thank you!

When I was little, only seven or eight years old, I was really into card making. I took a lot of classes – I even went to CKU. And yesterday I was digging through my old cards, when I found a beautimous card that Awesome Audrey made once when I was sick. (Awesome Audrey is my wonderful sister.) The card contained one of the best Audreyisms* ever. Here it is:

I love this. Let me explain it, just a little bit. The silver bird stamps are supposed to represent our family, with the tall long-legged bird Dad (though in a fair representation it would’ve been me – I’m 5’7”), the beautiful peacock is Mum, and the three birds in a row are me, Audrey and Colin. But what we love about the card is what she wrote in the postscript…

"P.S. Please don’t barf on me."

This may be the best get well card ever, because it is just so totally Audrey. What a way to make you’re incredible older sister feel better when she's sick, right?

Oh, and my Mum asked me to let you know that the winner of the AC goodies is Jennifer R.  Lucky girl!

Until later, may you be as happy as my sister with a cookie.
Kay

(*Awesome Audrey Fact* Audrey will occasionally come out with a hilarious comment, an “Audreyism” if you will. They’re usually random and completely off the wall.)

  6. Kay you just make me laugh. It’s funny how there is always one in the house with ism’s, in our house it’s my daughter Kayley she says some of the funniest things ever with out trying too and we tend to call them her Kayley moments however I like the term you used and may have to start calling them Kayleyism’s. Thanks for the laugh today!

    Aloha, Kay! That Audrey-ism should definitely be made into a rubber stamp! Have fun with the takeover. Your mum deserves a break now and then!

  16. Margaret C

    Is this your mum’s holiday then ???!!! Well done you. I am so jealous that you got to go to CKU so young – i don’t think I’ll ever get there (ok, I live in Scotland so the chances are REALLY slim !!!) Love the card – well done Audrey !!

  17. Helen

    Ha! I almost spat my breakfast cereal all over the laptop when I read this – so funny. I’ll definitely join the campaign for Audrey’s comment to be made into a stamp! Loving your takeover. Hope your mum can have a bit of a rest whilst you’re in charge. Hx

  23. M. Fosco

    How funny is that! Perfect sentiment, even if we don’t want to admit it … just ask any Mom who’s being up all night with a sick kid … yeah, don’t barf on me is so right! Can’t wait ’till your next post. Marta

  24. Victoria S.

  27. Jenink

    LOL! What a sweetie. And let’s face it, we’re all THINKING it “please don’t barf on me…” At least she has the honesty to come right out and say it! I think that deserves a cookie ;)
