I'm just popping in real quick this morning. It will be a busy time until next Wed. for me. I have an appointment today at 10:30 then I go pick up my granddaughter. Her car drowned last week in those storms we had. It was parked in a repair shop to be fixed and the river close to the repair shop ran its banks in all that heavy rain and flooded. Her car was covered up to the luggage rack! So I am picking her up and we will spend the day tomorrow together. Then we go get my youngest granddaughter and they will both be here until Friday night. Then I get my grandson and he will stay for a while. The youngest ones school starts July 5 so this is their last harrah before school.

I would like to welcome my newest follower, Bonnie, of http://bon2stamp.blogspot.com/, I want to follow her blog too as she makes some gorgeous cards. BUT, I can't figure out how to get my picture on blogs I follow so I will wait until I figure that out. I may not get too much computer time for a week or so. I also signed up to take the Background Online Class and have no time to play along with the videos. Seems like everytime I sign up for a class something else comes along and I can't do the homework. I will get to it. I did try the smooshing again and it was awful. No more smooshing for me.

I drug out a card I made a long, long time ago. Used some Robins Nest dew drops (I think that's what they are called) on the card. I still have six full bottles of them in all colors. If anyone needs some I'll be glad to share. The paper is gold foiled and so pretty. Be kind to one another.

  2. Brenda, well, the silver lining in all that rain and flooding is you get to spend lots of time with your granddaughter...and several others too! that is more precious than making a card...you are bonding and creating memories! Fabulous card, Brenda and I really like the one you made yesterday...your sponging is fantastic and that sweet flower, yes the colors are great!

  6. So pretty! Glad to hear you are having the grands come to play - even though it might be a little tiring for you with all the excitement youngsters can bring along. Be good for you! That's terrible about your granddtr's car, and I hope it can be fixed properly. Glad to see Bonnie is a new follower. She's awesome. I can help you with the picture thing-y (I think!) Looking forward to Stampaway, and hope our plans don't go amiss. You hang in there...and enjoy the ride. Hugs & TFS

  10. What a beautiful card Brenda! I love that paper you used and I love those flowers. You have colored them in so pretty and the dew drops are perfect for the centers. On the Cricut message board we called them skittles because a lady who showed them to us, her screen name was Sally Skittles. lol But yes, dew drops is the official name of them. I have tons of them myself! I love them but like pearls they add a lot of dimension and for mailing that isn't always a good thing. lol Hugs, Brenda
