The Weekend Ends...

Wow, what a weekend!

I am exhausted.  And tired.  And worn OUT.

...and I do not want to go to work tomorrow morning.

We closed the new play, FRESH MEET, last night.  After the show, I went out for what was supposed to be one drink, with my best friend, Jason.  We were roommates back 'when we were kids.'  We've known each other a long, long time.  He moves around lots, now, with his job as a very successful TV news producer.  So any time he's in town is an occasion to have a great time!  And as I was saying, 'one drink' after the show turned into a barhopping wild time.  Just like the old days.  I ended up staying up to four in the morning.  No, not out drinking until four- but when we did get back to my place, I got distracted by what I guess was an all night marathon of one of my favorite TV shows-  LOCK UP.  I love it when they show the women's prisons- the two ladies who run the loan shark business FROM THEIR CELLS crack me up...

Anyways, I did finally climb out from under my hangover long enough to make a card.  Yes!  It was time to try out my Mister Huey's Color Mist!  BUT FIRST, I needed some background music!  I went over to my record player and put on one of the new records I found at the thrift store on Friday.  This is the super cool record player that I found in someone's trash, last year.  Can you believe someone would throw this away?  It looks so cool and it WORKS!  The record is a collection of music from the '20s.  So fun.

With the music putting me into a great mood, I stared lovingly at my collection of Mister Huey's Color Mists.  And this was when I got the 'joke' of the name- MISTER Huey's!  Get it?  MISTER?  Clever! 

I've since peeled off the bright pink price stickers.  Hmmm.  Which to use, first?  Yeahp.  Calico White.  The first one I ever saw.  The shade that began a great love affair.

When I use any kind of mist or spray,  I use a big plastic bag.  I put whatever I'm gonna spray in the bottom of the bag and spray away.  

I sometimes see those cardboard 'Color Catchers' at the store, and often think about buying one- but I luckily come to my senses and realize that this works perfectly.  And it's free!

The mist worked perfectly.  A perfectly non-uniform, random mist.  I LOVE these!  I haven't been this excited about a purchase in a long time.  Now, to find the 'Clay' color!  

So- here's my card!

I used:
A Fiskars Triangle punch.  (Found at Big Lots for 3.00)
The 'chain' is a border\edger punch from EK Success
Spellbinders, Labels 1
Distress Inks: Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain and Festive Berries
"Friend" stamp from Magnetic Poetry Word Stamps
The Kraft card stock is Michael's store brand
Colorful paper is from Kaisercraft's 'Surf's Up' collection

and of course, Mister Huey's Calico White!

Happy Sunday evening, everyone.  Have a great week!  Gotta run- THE WALKING DEAD is on!



  1. Great card! I know my friend loves the mister huey's but I've never tried them? Loving the white!

  2. Hi; nice card. I don't have any Mister Huey's...and do you think the word "Huey" is from word hue? 'mist hues'...genius.

    The record player is awesome. We got rid of our turntable and now I'm sorry as I'd like to listen to some of the old lp's we have...the tone is different than cd's.

    1. HUE!! LoL, I hadn't gotten as far as deciphering that, yet! I am seriously laughing. I am slow to the game this weekend. That is clever, and now that you've pointed it out to me, it seems so obvious. But then again, I didn't 'get' MISTER til just earlier tonite.


  3. Oh Kory, you found my all time favorite addiction too huh? Mister Huey's are beyond awesomeness!!! Calico White is simply my favorite I use it a lot on my layouts and cards too!!! Your card turned out amazing friend, Love the chain and the "friend" cute!!! Awesome! Hope you get some rest!

    Hugs! Frank xoxo

  4. Fun Card! I am not into sprays but I really like the look of white on kraft. Might have to get me some :-) BTW I mentioned you on my blog.

  5. I must admit it took me a good long while to get the Mister Huey joke too! LOL Happy junk find!
