O' Christmas Tree, take 2

My DH prefers yesterday's version, but I wanted to make another tree card using ribbon tape in a version that was matted ... so here's a similar card. I love the ivory and dark gray together; don't you?! Tell me, which do YOU like best - today's or yesterday's card? I'll use a random number generator to select a comment that notes a preference a week from today to win a stamp set.

I worked at Discover Kettering today (insert shameless plug for my workplace here), where we hosted about 250 families. Here's a "shout out" to our ECE department, which had 8 of their current 15 instructional labs open for the AB tour! Of 20 labs open for the tour, they had a heckuva representation! If you're interested in Kettering University and would like to visit, I highly recommend these Discover programs. You get to take in tours of many of our labs, residence hall and recreation center, speak with current students, and attend a few information sessions that cover our programs, co-op education, financial aid, etc. Today's program coincided with an auto show sponsored by our Firebird's Car Club. The next Discover is scheduled May 21st - stop by (RSVP)! I'll most likely be at the posted at the start of the Academic Building self-guided tour!)

After work I came home to relax and play with my card stash. We watched The Pelican Brief (I love this movie) while I made today's card, and we just finished a quick Saturday evening meal of pulled pork sandwiches and fruit. DH had control of the remote, so we were switching between Golf Central, a football game, and the movie. My eldest has stayed home from school the last couple days - seems to have the same but less severe version of the bronchitus I've had - but thankfully seems to be doing MUCH better today - YAY! So, all's good in my little corner of the world! Thanx for stopping by!

I do believe I prefer the matted version (sorry PB). Not that they weren't both fab!
