My husband gives me the best hugs...neither bone crushing or lackadaisical 

(yah, I googled that...I was never in a spelling bee)...

I literally forbid him to hug me if I'm avoiding tears ...I know I can't hold it together under that comforting embrace.

Forgive the mush ball words coming out of my fingers...the girlies and I have found ourselves knee deep in a VERY CLEAN South Korean Soap Opera 

(with subtitles, of course!).

 Good grief, I can't wait until the disks are over so I can move on with my life~HA!

This is EXACTLY why I don't watch soap operas~my OCDness knows no bounds....ugh.

Anyway, mom sent the set (it's big in Hawaii) and I've shelved it for 5 years. 

Spring break seemed like the time to dive in.

Getting to my card so I can get back to my disks (hee!)....

I LOVE ME some gray/grey...however you'd like to spell it...it's been the new black for a few years now.


I've used two shades of gray....one with the leaves and the other with the ink (Memento Gray Flannel).

The soap opera is called Winter Sonata..in case you're wondering, by the way.

Don't say I didn't warn you if you can't get your daily chores done...

OH, and mom says there are more seasons of drama she can send me....

  1. Love the contrast of the greys with the bold pop of pink! Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. gorgeous.. love that fun bright pink...

  3. Korean Soap Opera...your mom is so sweet to want to send you more seasons :) Love your sweet card Marlena!
    Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  4. What a fabulous post! Hearing about your husband's 'quality hugs' makes my heart-melt! My husband's are the same: perfect! Your soap-opera extravaganza, shared with your girls, sounds awesome! We were that way with the first couple seasons of Sherlock, and I have House of Cards on order from the library, so we'll see what that's all about (we are so not TV watchers outside of Food Network - Robert Irvine is the best!). My husband, if he could, would watch nothing but bike racing videos, and yes, I confess, I'd be joining him! Your card: LOVE it! Fun, fresh bright pink, a sweet heart, and yes, your 'two shades of grey" - absolutely top notch delightful! Hugs~c

  5. Aww what a sweet post! Not sure I should get myself into a soap -opera but if I have some time ...good to know.
    Love your shades of gray with the pretty pink!
    Thanks for being the bearer of good news so many times for me… you are so sweet.
