Hey y’all happy Thursday!  You know, I was thinking the other night how I often open my blog posts; it seems to be Hey y’all or you guys.  Now having been raised in Kentucky, where they call you by your first and middle name, it was always y’all.  Of course I was called Sherry Lynn or the shortened version, SherLynn, all my life.  I still have relatives that would know me by no other name.  I went to college in the middle east of Indiana.  There I had friends from all across the county with all different types of accents.  For instance, I had one friend from Jersey who couldn’t say purse (it always came out puss) so it was always a pocketbook with her.  I met Mr. Stodgy in college (well actually on Ft. Myers Beach during spring break).  We lived in the same group of dorms.  I brought him home one weekend and we went shopping.  The cashier said, “can I help y’all.”  Mr. Stodgy looks at me and asks “why is she asking us about a truck?”  I laughed so hard that I almost peed my pants.  You see, Mr. Stodgy is from Northwest Indiana, affectionately called the Region by most Hoosiers.  We got married and moved to the Region.  The first time I met Mr. Stodgy’s grandmother, Grace, she was going to town and asked if I wanted to go with.  I was waiting for her to finish . . . go with?  Go with where?  Go with whom?  Another term I picked up while in the Region.  We moved back to Kentucky in 1983.  I’ve picked up my local southern twang once again but every once in awhile little snippets of other phrases slip out.  My point?  I truly don’t have one . . . I was just thinking about all the different accents and phrases I have picked up during my life.  I truly can’t help myself.

Have you had enough of my babbling?  I know I have!  But truly if you have, then skip down to the next paragraph.  BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA read then skip.

Yesterday while browsing through the forums on Splitcoaststampers I decided to look at the Sketch Challenge.  After I did some picking up in the studio and had started another project that needed to dry, I started on the Sketch Challenge.  Needless to say, I didn’t finish last night but this morning instead.  I’m still working off and on with the other project.


This time, I decided to watercolor with crayons.  I’m off on that tangent of painting with different mediums and having fun with it.  I used my new favorite toy, my Koi Water Brushes and Stampin’ UP! Watercolor Wonder Crayons.  My gosh I haven’t used those crayons in ages.  They actually look practically new!  Anyhoo, I needed a card for a friend and I thought this would be perfect to let her know I was thinking about her.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
