Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend has started off with a bang.  The weather here is absolutely gorgeous . . . sunny and warm.  Have I told you how much I hate cold weather?  I actually had to put jeans on one morning when I went to the doctor . . . so totally unacceptable.  I want short and t-shirt weather all the time and some day I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t have that right here in the Ohio Valley.  Our weather patterns have changed so much over the last 10 years.  If not, it will just make looking for that private island and cabana boys all the more important!

I’m still trying to get myself and the mojo into high gear.  There are some things that are a little troublesome . . . like trying to cut paper and holding a straight line on the sewing machine.  I know, don’t tell me I really don’t need to sew!  But I DO!  I love it, plus it keeps down the use of tape and glue . . . I don’t use nearly as much as I use to.  One little piece of double-stick tape in the middle of the layer and you can sew away and it stays in place.  Now I just need to sew up the hole in the seam of my favorite t-shirt . . . been meaning to do that for months now.

I started today’s card sometime yesterday morning and the colors weren’t working for me so once again, I walked away.  Last night while trying to find something to watch on television and realizing that I was soooooooooo bored, I came back down to the studio and finished the coloring.  The image is one from Hero Arts that I got from my friend, Daisy, when I placed an order at eclectic Paperie over a year ago.  This is the first time it’s seen ink.

For y’all!  Thanks for all the birthday wishes and the warm fuzzy thoughts while I recuperate and heal.  It means more than you can even begin know!


I stamped the image a couple of times because I wanted to pop up the middle of the flowers.  Well let me say more than a couple of times.  The first time I stamped with the wrong ink and had to go back and re-stamp them all.  Alcohol based ink and Copic Markers just don’t mix!

I hope you get out and enjoy the weather today and thanks for stopping by!
