Since I am here sick and Ken stayed home from work, I thought I would post again.
So, thanks for the comments on Facebook. Here is the thing: I don't have a huge desire to find people from my past. That sounds bad, but I am just happier with who I am now then I was in the past. past. So, I would just do it to keep in touch with mostly my sister-in-law's family in Africa. Maybe I will try it. Hmmm. Also, I can share photos with people that I don't want to publically share. Not sure. Hmmm.
OK, since you were all helpful with that… … can I ask another question? What do you do with puzzles for the kids? Colin is addicted, but we lose pieces a lot. Have any tips to keeping the pieces together? Smooch.
I have a couple of cards to share.
First, a Papertrey Ink card I made back in December in a crop. I just adore these stars, alphabet and boat. This was for my husband. I tell him a lot that I appreciate all he does. He does more than a husband should! (Can you say laundry, grocery shopping, bedtime, picking up, dishes and more…) Oh, and to make the waves, I punched several circles on blue paper, then trimmed close along it.
Papertrey stamps – all of them
Colorbox Chalk ink (boat and greeting)
Hero Arts Memories White Ink (stars)
Hero Arts Shadow Ink (blue)
Hero Arts notecards, gemstones
Copic Glitter pen (on the white stars on the blue blocks)
And now some Hero Arts fun. I think I was channeling the incredible Julie on this one. She is so good at the white-card-with-stamped-and-colored-goodness. (HERE is a good example.) I LOVE that look. Here is my not-so-impressive attempt at it. These are new stamps from Hero!
This is a close-up to show the fun a Copic Glitter Pen adds to coloring. See that subtle bit of shimmer? So much better in real life. Yummm…

I have a giveaway tomorrow… see you then.
Oh… and the Bachelor is tonight. Any fun insights? Wouldn't it be fun if we could all get together and be silly and laugh at it?
