Happy Mail Anthony & Burt

Hey Friends!! Happy Sunday to you all!! When I first saw this Anthony & Burt image I thought that Burt looks a bit like he's on crack or something or maybe wired on coffee. . .all bug eyed and such! LOL!! Relax Burt. . .your mail is coming!! Too funny.

Okay, you're suppose to laugh! I don't know. . .I sometimes look at an image and see things that are a bit peculiar to me and think up crazy things about them. . .gotta have a bit of humor in one's life or life will be dull, don't you think?

Anyway, I love Anthony & Burt, bug-eyed and all! Those two are adorable together. . .Anthony is the bug. . .what is he anyway? He's not a bee. . .well I don't think he is. What do you think he is? Or maybe he is a bee.. . .now that I look at him, I think he is a bumble bee. . .I have to ask Jen about this one. I think Anthony is the bug. . .I had asked Jen this question before but I can't remember what she told me. Jen, if you read this . . .Anthony is the bug right? Correct me if I'm wrong!

You can find Anthony & Burt at Little C's Stamps n' Things and whole lotta brands of stamps and products. Fo' Real!! Little C's has a butt load of awesome products for you to blow your money on!! So be sure to stop by her store and be prepared to go broke!! LOL!! Sorry. . I'm in a weird mood today!

Oh! Little C's still has a Valentines sale going on so be sure to stop by and take advantage of her sale. It ends February 16 or until supplies last!!

Anyway. . .just a little bit of info on my card. I colored the image with my Copic markers and added SU Crystal Effects on Burt's eyes to give it a glassy look . ..that's about it.

Card Details:

Stamps: Anthony & Burt, Pink Cat Studio (sentiment)

Paper: DCWV designer paper, SU Certainly Celery, Cool Caribbean

Ink: Copic Markers

Accessories: Metal frame tag (?), Basic Basic Ribbon, SU Crystal Effects

Before I go. . .we went to the movies this afternoon and saw the move "Coraline". I loved it!! I do recommend it for teens and adults but not for children. It's a bit scary for children . . .remember "Nightmare Before Christmas". . okay, same director! So you can pretty much visualize what Coraline would be like. The animation is totally awesome . . .actually, I loved everything about the movie. . .just a fun and scary movie all at the same time.

Another two movies that I saw recently that I highly recommend are "Curious Case of Benjamin Button". . .not just because Brad Pitt is in the movie. I love movies that have a "fantasy" component to it and one that tells a story like a book (well, in this case it is from a book). LOL! Great cinematography too!! Just a beautiful movie overall!!

The other movie is "Slumdog Millionaire". I LOVE Indie films. . .big time!! Slumdog is the first "independent" film that I have seen in a long time that don't end with a shockingly depressing ending. LOL! I always anticipate something bad or horrible is going to happen in the end especially with Indie films. . . .have you seen the Departed, Babel, Little Children, House of Sand and Fog, Mystic River, etc. . .if you did, well you'll understand what I mean by depressing!! LOL! Anyway. . .Slumdog is a must see movie. You don't have to love Indie films to like this movie. It's a real true feel good movie!

Hope you all have a fabulous week!

I love these guys!! They are kinda cute waiting for the mail. It reminds me of me waiting for the mail except I don't quite look like that!!! I just love happy mail!!
Is the bug a fly?? This is the first time I'm seeing these stamps so I'm not sure but I thought maybe he was a fly.

Hugs, Cathy
